Blueprint to organize a quantum computing workshop

For many people, learning a new skill is easiest when it's a shared experience. Quantum computing workshops offer an interactive, structured and co-operative forum to jump start your quantum learning. But how do organize such an event? The Azure Quantum team frequently receives questions on how to organize quantum computing workshops, so ...

Shorter quantum circuits

To solve some of the world’s most challenging problems in chemistry and materials science will require scaling up a quantum computer to a million qubits and beyond [BMTS+ 2022]. Microsoft has taken a more challenging, but what we believe to be a more promising path towards scaled quantum computing and designed our machine using ...
