Welcome back for another look at the basics of quantum computer programming. We’re going to continue to use IBM’s excellent programming framework called Qiskit, and Jupyter notebooks to demonstrate with the usual disclaimer that you can code this without the notebook, and the same ideas can be realized in any quantum programming language. If you […]

Mimblewimble is the funny sounding and unconventional blockchain protocol that emphasizes scalability, privacy and fungeability. It is full of Harry Potter lore, cryptography and bright new ideas for cryptocurrency. Due to the way mimblewimble is constructed, it’s best suited for comparisons to Bitcoin. If you need a quick refresher, consider giving my Intro to Bitcoin […]

In the previous post we started to explain how to understand quantum computing from a computer science perspective, even without knowing the underlying quantum mechanics. We did so by explaining that you can consider everything in terms of the math, and we began the process of explaining what happened in the quantum entanglement program we […]

I won’t pretend to understand the physics of quantum mechanics, it baffles me to be honest. I only know the words that the physics people use to describe what happens. My limited understanding of quantum computing comes purely from a computer science perspective, so that’s all I can try to share. A quantum bit, or […]
