The course is beautifully designed starting with an Introduction to Quantum Mechanics. In a couple of weeks, we are already applying gates and dealing with circuits as we start dealing with Quantum Computation, yet it does so in a very gradual and gentle manner. Before you know, you are already face to face with Quantum Algorithms, but still it never feels like you are being rushed into a topic. The last few weeks deal with Schrödinger's equation, Quantum Systems and how to practically implement these qubits. I somehow cannot wrap my head around the fact that I learnt so much in like 10 weeks! I can now perform magical things like: Perform tensor products! (Tensor sounded really scary before I took this course) Use the Dirac Bra-Ket Notations for qubits! (Those little angles don't look complex now) Showing you how Quantum Teleportation works! How weird and beautiful Quantum Entanglement is! How powerful quantum systems can be in comparison to classical systems! How a 2-D qubit gets mapped to real-life 3-D by a Bloch Sphere! How to implement these qubits through Spin! ...and countless more things If you are even slightly curious about this topic, you should definitely give this a try. I really hope there's another advanced course to follow this one up. Thank you so much CS191x team!
