This talk will explore quantum computing (QC) and the opportunities and challenges that exist within the field. Many of the development frameworks use Python (including IBM and Rigetti) giving this community, in particular, an advantage in learning and building QC-related software.

This presentation will cover:
– Quantum computing basics
– Myths about quantum computing
– Industry landscape
– Applications of quantum computing
– Open challenges
– Algorithm examples using Python

Travis Hurant is a student and researcher in the Electrical Engineering department at North Carolina State University where he focuses on quantum algorithms and quantum error mitigation. Travis is also the CTO of Indi Individuals (https://indi.com/individuals) and a software engineer.

Extemporaneous “lightning talks” of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don’t need to be pre-announced. Lightning talks are for you to “show and tell” something you’ve learned about Python recently, no matter how small. We all use Python, therefore, we are always learning something new about Python that we can tell others.
