Since its theorization, now more than 40 years ago, quantum computing has immediately shown that it has enormous potential as a method of computation.
It has been realized that, by exploiting the basic principles of quantum mechanics, it is possible to carry out normally very long and complex calculations in a relatively short time.
Today the quantum computer market is in full evolution: different computer models have emerged, based on different qubits technologies and with different functionalities, as well as different software stacks able to emulate and/or operate the QPUs of today’s NISQs (Noisy Intermediate- Scale Quantum) computers.
The Practical Quantum Computing School (PQCS) aims to show the end user how to actually use the best and most influential quantum software stack available to the scientific community today.
