The Map of Quantum Computing – Quantum Computing Explained

An excellent summary of the field of quantum computing. Find out more about Qiskit at and their YouTube channel
And get the poster here:

With this video I aim to give a really good overview of the field of quantum computing with a clear explanation of how they work, why people are excited about quantum algorithms and their value, the potential applications of quantum computers including quantum simulation, artificial intelligence and more, and the different models and physical implementations people are using to build quantum computers like superconducting devices, quantum dots, trapped ions, photons or neutral atoms, and the challenges they face.
