About The Instructors
Jason Necaise received his BS in Physics and Mathematics from MIT in 2020. He has been involved with the Quantum Photonics and Quantum Information Theory groups at MIT, as well as the Nanophotonics Design & Computation Group at Princeton University. His research projects have ranged from limits to information entropy emission to numerical simulations of decoherent quantum walks. Jason was also an intern at IBM Research in their quantum chemistry software division. During this time, he realized the need for better educational resources and documentation in quantum programming for the technology to realize its potential, and is dedicated to training and enabling the next generation of programmers to build a better quantum-enabled world.
Professor of Physics at Dartmouth College, James Whitfield is a pioneer in the application of quantum computing to quantum chemistry problems. He received his BS in Mathematics and Chemistry from Morehouse College and his Ph.D. in Chemical Physics from Harvard University, where his thesis was titled At the Intersection of Quantum Computing and Quantum Chemistry. He has given dozens of presentations on this topic, including as the invited lecturer at the 2019 Quantum Information for Developers Summer School and Hackathon at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. James is the chief scientific advisor to qBraid, seeking to innovate to build the future of quantum education.
Andrea Coladangelo is currently a postdoc at the University of California, Berkeley and Ph.D. from Caltech, where his thesis was titled Quantum Correlations, Certifying Quantum Devices, and the Quest for Infinite Entanglement. He received his BA and MA in Mathematics from the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge, respectively. Previously, Andrea has interned in IBM Research’s quantum group. Andrea is an expert in quantum cryptography and his research is principally concerned with how we can certify the behavior of quantum devices, and once these devices can be trusted, what kinds of cryptographic tasks are realizable that are beyond the reach of classical computers. He believes that the quantum revolution will be a marathon and he is passionate about training the next generation of researchers, programmers, and engineers to “think quantum.”
In Partnership with qBraid
We've collaborated with qBraid to make the learning experience even better! The qBraid platform is a one-stop solution for learning about and writing programs for quantum computers. It contains integrated courses at varying levels of difficulty, from a general introduction to quantum computing to application-specific tutorials. These courses are hands-on, with all the quantum code executable from cloud-based notebooks. The sample code from these notebooks can be used develop/explore new applications as users build their own projects. Currently in development, qBraid-OS is interoperable with quantum computers from various hardware providers on market from a single coding environment, allowing users to get the most from their code using whatever libraries or packages they want.
In this course, you will:
Explore the fundamentals of quantum computing
Use Qiskit to code quantum algorithms
Develop coding and critical thinking skills
Your tuition includes:
Customized 2-week camp curriculum
Access to instructor office hours
Official Q-munity x qBraid diploma
The QuBes Camp is an approachable, interactive introduction to quantum computing. We will be covering important concepts from the quantum world and teaching real applicable skills. You will learn to play quantum chess and use Qiskit to write your own programs on real quantum computers. Our program is unique in that we assume no prior exposure and cover everything from the ground up. Additionally, each students will leave the course with their own original quantum computing project.
