Black and White Magic with Quantum Algorithms
About

Quantum computers are coming and they are closer than you think.

We have heard about Shor's Algorithm (frankly horrifying but some way in the future) and the interesting, but not particularly useful, Grover's algorithm. But what real world problems will Quantum computers solve and how will they do it? Now is the time to start understanding this.

In this talk I'll explain where the power of the quantum computers will come from, the classes of problem that quantum computers will likely be used for and how to construct some powerful algorithms using Q#, Microsoft's quantum language.
