In this YouTube video, Marissa Giustina addresses some basic questions about quantum computing. You’ll learn about what makes a quantum computer “quantum”, and what differentiates it from a standard computer.

In addition, you’ll get to see what some current quantum processors look like, and see the stack of hardware infrastructure needed to run the full system.

Dr. Talia Gershon, a materials scientist by training, came to IBM Research in 2012.

After over 4 years of developing next-generation solar cell materials, she got inspired to learn about quantum computing because it might enable all kinds of discoveries (including new materials).

Having authored the Beginner’s Guide to the QX, she passionately believes that anyone can get started learning quantum!
