I really enjoyed this course! I have taken a couple more introductory MOOCs on quantum computing, and this one definitely offers a new perspective. I really liked learning about the density matrix representation, which I hadn’t seen before. I also found very useful how the derivation of the Quantum Fourier Transform (QFT) was done. It was more on the mathematical side, but with some additional reading on the intuition behind it, it really helped me understand how qubits are mapped between the computational and Fourier basis. Quantum error correction was another subject covered that usually is not presented at an introductory level. The example presented for Shor’s algorithm was also very helpful.
My only critique would be that some of the material might be a bit advanced for someone that hadn’t been exposed to quantum computing. I think that for someone new to QC, perhaps taking this course side by side with the other one offered by Saint Petersburg State University (The Introduction to Quantum Computing) is probably a good idea; there is a little bit of overlap in some subjects, but I think they complement each other very well.

Please provide some after-lecture notes. It helps a lot.

Interesting subject matter. Great introduction to the subject for someone with a Computer Science background.

Good introductory course for quantum computing. In order to complete the course you need to have a good understanding of quantum mechanics, I have a university degree in physics and I wouldn't have been able to complete the course without that background. The course is very maths heavy and there aren't any lecture notes, just videos to follow.

The effort that was put into this course is below zero. Slides with errors and tutors that are reading for the first time their script. The English is horrific and unintelligible. The subtitles must have been generated by an algorithm that didn't understand a word, because it was expecting an English input and not whatever language they were speaking. I used this course as an awful overview of the concepts that I will later study in a serious way.
The course has the potential to be great: there are good topics and even the mathematical formality isn't bad. That's a good thing, because since you can't understand a word from the tutor, at least you can read the math. This is most positive thing I can say about this course.
As I said earlier BELOW ZERO EFFORT.

I think I was addicted to active teaching that means teaching the content, But not reading it like a BOT!

The Best Course on the entire internet for someone who is craving to know more about Quantum Computing. This course would help anyone to dive deep into the actual mathematics and algorithms used in this field. Thank you so much for the course!
wonderful course which I learned lot of things

Too technical for a beginner , but quite interesting if one focuses
