Dr. Muhamad Felemban

Assistant Professor, COE Department              



Quantum computing is an emerging field that exploits the quantum phenomena to perform operations on data. The goal of quantum computing is to find quantum algorithms that are significantly faster than classical algorithms solving the same problem. In this talk, the speaker will explain the basic elements of quantum computation and the advantages they offer from a computer science perspective. In addition, the speaker will talk about the myths and misconceptions about quantum computing. Finally, the speaker will discuss the state-of-the-art technologies and applications of quantum computing, the challenges of building scalable quantum computers, and how quantum computing is related to Computer Engineering major at KFUPM.
