Quantum Computing Workshop at FIT
From 29 to 31 May, about twenty FIT students participated in the Quantum Computing Workshop. The three-day international workshop on quantum programming was organised by the Faculty of Information Technology together with the QLatvia research group of the University of Latvia. At the workshop, the participants were introduced to quantum calculations and learnt how to write simple quantum programmes.
The workshop was preceded by an opening lecture by Miroslav Iwachow, Technical Leader at IBM's industrial section for Central and Eastern Europe, who presented the first industrial initiative to build universal quantum computers for business and science. Abuzer Yakaryilmaz of the University of Latvia was in charge of the workshop itself; we also thank mentors Michal Bidl and Murali Karthick Baskar from FIT and Michal Sedlák from the Slovak Academy of Sciences.
