The structure of the course covered topics like the impact on cybersecurity, quantum computers to tackle problems in Material Science, the impact of quantum on society, applications in logistical optimization and the future of quantum.

Quantum computers provide a fundamentally new set of tools that can help us solve some of the world’s most difficult challenges. Many enterprises and companies are already investigating how to deal with this technology and the masterclass, equipped the attendees to make strategic decisions that help them reap the benefits of this technology, and manage its risks.

This masterclass was organized by The Analytics Academy and Quantum Amsterdam. The Analytics Academy is a collaboration between Amsterdam Data Science, ORTEC and the Amsterdam Business School of the University of Amsterdam. Quantum.Amsterdam is the innovation hub that connects academia, business and society to foster a thriving ecosystem around quantum technology, with a strong focus on software and IT for end-users

Part 9: Why we need error correction

For serious quantum computing, we need to dramatically reduce the likelihood of error of each elementary step – not just a little bit, but by a factor of millions. With several recent breakthrough, this is the right time to understand the importance of error correction.

Part 4: The applications of quantum networks

If we’re building computers that deal with qubits, superposition and entanglement, wouldn’t these computers also need some way to send qubits to each other? This is the dream of the quantum internet: a network that exchanges quantum-mechanical photons between devices all around the world, parallel to our well-known ‘classical’ internet.
