Making Quantum Computers Useful and Usable

Quantum computers are a promising form of advanced computational power with theoretical advantages for solving cryptographic problems and modelling physical systems such as molecular chemistry and novel materials. The eld is advancing rapidly and the hardware is nearing a level of sophistication where a quantum advantage in computational power of a quantum computer over a classical computer is possible. The goal of this project is to show this quantum advantage.
