How can you learn quantum computing when you have never used a quantum computer? That’s the big question that MIT xPRO’s support team gets from professionals who are interested in earning a Quantum Computing Fundamentals certificate, but don’t feel prepared for a two-course online program.
There are more online learning resources to choose from than ever before. If you’re looking to learn emerging technologies or prepare your workforce for digital transformation an informational webinar can help you explore the content, structure, and learning outcomes of a prospective online course. Explore online courses and programs in topics like additive manufacturing, leadership, machine learning, negotiation, systems engineering, and quantum computing.

The quantum computing revolution could empower companies and entire industries to solve previously intractable problems. As investment in quantum technology grows and tech giants vie for quantum advantage, demand for professionals with foundational quantum computing knowledge and hands-on quantum experience has never been higher.
This October, Google announced in an article published in the journal Nature that its quantum computer, which runs on a 53-qubit chip called “Sycamore,” took only 3 minutes and 20 seconds to calculate a problem that would take the world’s fastest conventional computer 10,000 years to solve. IBM disputed Google’s quantum supremacy claim, arguing that an ideal simulation of the same task can be performed on a classical system in 2.5 days and with far greater fidelity. And the debate continues.
IBM Watson AI Lab and MIT xPRO Collaborate to Support Lifelong Learners IBM Watson AI Lab has collaborated with MIT xPRO to develop an online quantum computing curriculum intended for professionals and leaders in business, government, and technology interested in the theoretical and practical aspects of quantum computing (QC).
The IBM Q Experience makes the world of quantum computing explorable and hands-on. Anyone seeking to learn QC can access IBM Q to create and run algorithms on real quantum computing hardware. While books and lectures have traditionally supported learning, offering people a way to get practical experience “by doing” helps too.
