To enroll in the Quantum Computing Realities Program, it is recommended that learners complete the MIT xPRO Quantum Computing Fundamentals Program. However, it is not a strict requirement, and individuals with experience or knowledge of the fundamentals of quantum computing through employment or education may be able to start with this program.
Knowledge of linear algebra, specifically vector and matrix multiplication, is strongly suggested as it forms the core of quantum computing algorithms. If you need to refresh your understanding of linear algebra, you can access a free course on MIT Open Courseware-Linear Algebra.
For those who would like a refresher on quantum physics, the MIT Open Courseware - Quantum Physics I course can be helpful.
Please note that the Quantum Computing Realities Program covers quantum computing programs such as Qiskit as part of the IBM Q Experience sections, but learners are not expected to have prior background in Qiskit.
