QUANTUM COMPUTING

GLOBAL GUIDED RESEARCH PROGRAM

WHAT IS THIS PROGRAM ABOUT

The GGRP (Global Guided Research Program) is a high-intensity 13-week research program for High School and University Students to perform ground-breaking, application-oriented, cutting-edge research in quantum computing under the supervision of World-Renowned Quantum faculty.

THEME : QUANTUM COMPUTING APPLICATIONS

TIMELINE

Jun 25 - July 14

Registration Dates

Fill in the application form of your program of interest and pay the program fee in order to to confirm your interest to participate.

If you decide to apply for a scholarship, you will be required to pass an interview. After which, you will be able to pay your discounted rate for the program.

July 15 - July 22

QBronze

Pass the quizzes contained in QWorld's introductory-level workshop, covering the basic math and programming required for quantum computing research.

Please read the section below for more information!

July 23 - July 31

QSilver

After passing QBronze, you have to pass the quizzes and coding assignments contained in QWorld's intermediate-level workshop, covering more advanced math and programming required for quantum computing research.

Please read the section below for more information!

August 1 - August 15

Learning

Start with learning the technical details of your project alongside your mentor.

Get acquainted with one another, familiarised with the content surrounding the project, and ready to tackle the more innovative aspects of your project.

August 16 - August 31

Validation

Analyse the limitations of current approaches and solutions surrounding your project.

The point is to understand the problem at its core, to be able to come up with a satisfactory solution.

September 1 - September 15

Theory

Start thinking of a solution to solve your identified problem, creating a theoretical outline to encapsulate your most promising idea.

We recommend summarising your thoughts into LaTeX directly, in order to make the latter process of drafting your paper easier.

September 16 - September 30

Practical

Practically implement your proposed solution through quantum libraries and languages of your choice.

Make sure to include your data, code and results into your paper!

October 1 - October 8

Presentation

Showcase all that you have done over your 2 months of hard work.

Make sure that you can condense everything into a 5 minute presentation - very few people are willing to listen to a massive blurb about every tiny detail of your project.

October 14

Result Day

It's the moment of truth! Celebrate with us, in-person or online...

NO QC EXPERIENCE? NO PROBLEM!

Even if you don't have the skills to do research, QWorld's QBronze and QSilver workshops will teach you everything you need to know to begin researching!

It is mandatory for all participants of the GGRP to pass the workshops. This is so we can vet whether a participant has the technical skills to begin researching.

If you are familiar with the contents of these workshops but don't have the diplomas, you can submit an equivalent certificate or pass the quizzes/assignments at your own pace.

QBronze

QBronze is QWorld’s introductory level quantum workshop on the basics of quantum computing and quantum programming.

QBronze is a collection of Jupyter notebooks, and each notebook has many programming tasks to provide hands-on experiences. We see QBronze as a laboratory where you can learn the basics of quantum computing and quantum programming by doing.Β 

QBronzeΒ is composed by main, before-workshop, and reference notebooks. The before-workshop notebooks are prepared to be used before the workshops. The main notebooks are prepared to be used during the workshops, some of which are optional covering more advanced topics.

The only prerequisite is to know the basics of programming (variables and basic data types, loops, and conditionals). Any previous experience in python will be helpful. If you do not have any such experience, you can check our notebooks on python before starting the tutorial.

QBronze also has notebooks on the basic math to review your knowledge on the simple arithmetic operations on vectors and matrices.

QBronze has five main sections:

  • Basics of classical systems
  • Basics of quantum systems
  • Quantum operators on a quantum bit
  • Entanglement and basics quantum protocols
  • Quantum search algorithm

QSilver

QSilver is QWorld’s intermediate level workshop series on quantum computing and programming focusing on complex numbers, QFT and Shor’s Algorithm.

QSilver consists of two introductory notebooks to review the basic primitives of the two quantum programming frameworks, Cirq and Qiskit and the main notebooks in which QFT and Shor’s algorithm are introduced.

The prerequisite for Silver is having completed the QBronze material or a similar course in Qiskit.

Silver is a collection of Jupyter notebooks, and each notebook has many programming tasks to provide hands-on experiences. It is a continuation of QBronze, in which the basics of quantum computing and quantum programming were introduced. QSilver includes two different quantum programming frameworks, Qiskit and Cirq.

QSilver has five main sections:

  • Introduction to complex numbers
  • Bloch Sphere
  • Operations with Complex Numbers
  • Quantum Fourier Transform and its applications
  • Shor’s algorithm

Testimonials

Gregoire Cattan

I think this is a good opportunity for students and I am happy to be part of it.

Sarthak Gandhi

Before The GGRP I had a very basic idea of QC and after joining GGRP I got to learn alot about the industry and actual applications of QC. The QWorkshops did actually help a lot in the research.

Emre Camkarten

My background in quantum computing was about QBronze level, but after GGRP it significantly increased. Especially during the research process, I gained a lot of invaluable experience on how research is done, how to work with teammates etc.

Santiago Maza

I am a high school graduate and I have never been in college. My background was some pre college math and some python. The course for me was like an absolute mind training that prepared me to all the things I needed to learn for the research. The course obviously taught me a lot of useful things I needed on the research, however, what I value the most, was the relative difficulty when compared with my level and how it trained me for all I needed to learn when doing research.

FAQ

In the quantum's cryptic binary,
Where qubits spin in mystery,
FAQs unfold in curious tide,
An oracle for minds worldwide.

Entangled queries find their place,
In this realm of uncertainty's embrace.
Superpositions of knowledge grow,
Where quantum paths in circuits flow.

From basics to depths profound,
FAQs illuminate all around,
A guide through quantum's vast frontier,
Navigating what may appear.
