In this video from the 2018 Swiss HPC Conference, Dr. Mark Mattingley-Scott from IBM presents: Quantum Computing, Its Principles, Capabilities and Challenges.

“Since the invention of the transistor in 1947 we have seen a number of incremental innovations – feature size, speed, architectural scalability, to name the most important. Quantum Computing represents a completely new approach to computing though, as we find ourselves in the world of qubits, superposition, entanglement, complex vector algebra and complex probabilities – and never mind the philosophical question of what it means to observe. Quantum Computing is here, right now – and we are at the start of a new way of computing, which will impact us the way the revolution started by Shockley, Bardeen and Brattain did in 1947. In this talk I will introduce Quantum Computing, its principles, capabilities and challenges and provide you with the insight you need to decide how you should engage with this revolutionary technology.”

Dr. Mark Mattingley-Scott is an IBM Q Ambassador. IBM Q is an industry-first initiative to build commercially available universal quantum computers for business and science.
