Quantum Computing

Hi all,

I’m prepared exploring Quantum Computing which is completely new to me.  Searching a while on Internet, I found IBM Qiskit which is an Open Source software necessitated for Quantum Computing.

Also I found following documentation;

1) Hello Quantum: Taking your first steps into quantum computation https://medium.com/qiskit/hello-quantum-2c1c00fe830c

2) Installing Qiskit https://qiskit.org/documentation/install.html

3) Coding with Qiskit https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOFEBzvs-Vvp2xg9-POLJhQwtVktlYGbY

4) Qiskit 0.12 https://qiskit.org/documentation/release_notes.html#notable-changes

5) Qiskit API documentation https://qiskit.org/documentation/

6) Qiskit IQX Tutorials https://github.com/Qiskit/qiskit-iqx-tutorials


Before start I expect to know whether I need a Quantum Computer for my exploration?  Or a classic computer, a desktop PC, can do the job? Please shed me some light? Thanks in advance.

Best Regards

Hi Satimis!

All that’s needed is a regular PC as you’re actually accessing IBM’s quantum computers via the cloud. Just make sure your internet connection  is pretty good.

Kind regards,

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your advice.

I only have Desktop PC running Ubuntu (Linux), connected to Internet via 500M fibre network.

Hi Satimis !!

If you really need to run your code in a quantum computer, as Rob said, you may use the IBM’s quantum computers. However, you can run several basic quantum codes on your Desktop PC, using the backend qasm_simulator available in the Qiskit.
