Quantum Computing harnesses the laws of quantum mechanics to process information more efficiently, sometimes even exponentially faster. A classical computer uses bits, 0s or 1s, to process information, but a quantum computer uses quantum bits – “qubits” – that can be both 0 and 1 at the same time. This offers a radically new method for computing.
How can you pass on a secret when everyone is able to listen in? In this course, you will learn how to use quantum effects, such as quantum entanglement and uncertainty, to implement cryptographic tasks with levels of security that are impossible to achieve classically.
