Quantum Computing Open Accompanied Live Teaching: Quantum Annealing for You 2nd Party!


The legendary lecture continues.
You want to use quantum annealing to solve social problems. Want to develop business? I want to create useful applications for people.
Despite your desire to try it, you may have many worries: “I have never done any programming,” “I don't know anything about quantum computers, ” “I can't come up with anything useful,” and so on.
We will face these problems and solve them together. We will face such problems and solve them together with you. That is “QA4U2”.
This time, there will be two periods, “Lecture” and “Planning,” and we will accept high school students, technical college students, university students, graduate students, and working people from all over the country.
The previous QA4U held at QA4U had nearly 500 participants and 250 group work sessions. The proposed quantum applications were introduced in the “Quantum Future Society Vision” formulated by the Cabinet Office.
The new era of human resource development is now available anytime, anywhere via free public companion live online delivery. We will be available for you to ask questions easily, so everyone is welcome to try it.

A Canadian and international symposium, Quantum Business for You for business development and commercialization will also be held.

Ⅰ. Lecture version
On YouTube, Professor Masayuki Ozeki of Tohoku University will deliver online lectures on how to touch a quantum computer every week during the period. If you have questions or comments for the professor, you can get real–time answers on the spot.

Ⅱ. Planning
Based on the learning in the class period, students will aim to produce a quantum computer application. In the previous QA4U, nearly 40 groups came up with their own apps. It should be an intense two days of realizing apps and services using real quantum computers!

After that, we aim to support the development of apps and release them to the real world.

*This event is held in Japanese.
