Quantum Computing: A Field Report
Professor Yuri Gurevich (Microsoft Research)


Each of us has a pile of I-wish-I-knew-something-about-that things. Quantum theory was a top item in my pile, even though I knew nothing about it. Last fall I had an opportunity to join a new Quantum Architecture and Computing group at Microsoft Research Redmond, and I jumped on the opportunity. The talk is sort of a field report from my journey to the quantum land for a quantum naive audience; quantum experts will learn nothing. I'll speak about quantum mechanics, show you one quantum algorithm and will discuss various related issues.
