Victor Kalt est le doctorant de Ionut Danaïla et de Marc Brachet (LP-ENS)

The aim of this talk is to present the general ideas behind the concept of quantum computing, from its basic principles to the recent achievement of quantum supremacy. The presentation will be organized into two parts:

  • The first one will be about the ideas behind quantum computing. I will start by a quick introduction to the key concepts of quantum mechanics before explaining how they can be harnessed to do computations.
  • The second part will be a presentation of some practical approaches to quantum computing, from quantum hardware (Trapped ions and superconducting qubits) to quantum software (Shor's algorithm for prime factorization).

I will conclude by a discussion of the current state of the domain (quantum supremacy) and the challenges it faces.
