This is a workshop for beginning undergrad or advanced high school students and members of general public who want to learn basics of quantum computers. Prior experience with a higher-level language will be very useful but prior knowledge of quantum computing or quantum physics is not required. A working knowledge of matrices is required. This workshop will feature practical sessions on programming a real quantum computer provided by IBM via cloud. We will have nine sessions on quantum algorithms with hands-on programming sessions. We will introduce participants to basic concepts like qubits, measurements, and quantum gates. We will learn how to construct and interpret quantum circuits. Basic quantum algorithms like Deutsch-Jozsa and Grover search, and key concepts like quantum teleportation, superdense coding, and quantum key distribution will be developed and implemented in python (Jupiter notebook) using Qiskit.
The Khwarizmi Science Society (KSS) organized a live talk on 1-Click Quantum Computing at Amazon Web Services (AWS)
by an internationally acclaimed quantum
expert; Prof Dr Michael Kastoryano
who is a Senior Research Scientist
and Worldwide Leader of Quantum Computing at AWS
. Dr Kastoryano is also an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Theoretical Physics, University of Cologne, has a PhD in Quantum Information from the University of Copenhagen and MSc from the Yale University.
The LIVE talk was scheduled on Sunday, 17th January 2021, 2 PM

Dr Michael Kastoryano talked about some of the most fascinating concepts of quantum computing and demonstrated how anyone can explore them online using AWS. Dr Kastoryano is also an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Theoretical Physics, University of Cologne, has a PhD in Quantum Information from the University of Copenhagen and MSc from the Yale University.
This is a series of eight lectures, each one hour long conducted through Zoom and exclusively online. No formal background in quantum physics is required, though a self-initiation may help. The course is most useful for students in their F.Sc/A’levels and students of physical sciences and engineering who are interested to learn more about quantum computers.
