Our colleague Manuel A. Serrano, member of aQuantum by Alarcos, gave a virtual seminar entitled: Quantum Computing Concepts: Towards a new Programming Paradigm as part of the SET Digital: Software Engineering Transforming the Digital Future research seminar series sponsored by Brunel University London.

The seminar took place on the 18th of November 2020 and was attended by international recognised academics and practitioners.

In this seminar the fundamental quantum concepts were exposed, with special emphasis on those that must be known by those who wish to begin the approach to the world of Quantum Software Engineering and Programming. In this regard, the Talavera Manifesto for Quantum Software Engineering and Programming was presented.

The seminar offered an interesting “tour” of Quantum Concepts such as Quantum Mechanics, Qubits, Hilbert Space and Quantum Circuits.

After the speech several questions, ideas and opportunities were stated and there was a productive discussion among the attendees.

The aQuantum Team thanks Manuel for his work in spreading the Talavera Manifesto and congratulates him for the interest generated among the attendees about Quantum Computing Concepts.
