Educating ourselves in the fundamentals of quantum computing [or the theory of it] is paramount to understanding even the simplest of quantum topics. This series has two parts: Part 1 breaks down ‘quantum weirdness’ into its constituent parts ~ qubits, spin…Part 2 delves into quantum algorithms from quantum-safe cryptography across Shor’s algorithm to the prospects of machine learning being combined with quantum computing.

Bloch sphere; a geometrical representation of a two-level quantum system.
