Quantum computing is advancing rapidly and proving to be useful for a wide range of applications. One of the major benefits is for some algorithms. Quantum computing provides a performance improvement. While a performance benchmark is useful, the unique nature of quantum computing requires some additional benchmarks to take into consideration. Come learn how a team is measuring a quantum computer's overall "quantumness" by using Simon's algorithm, over several hidden period strings, to determine how often the IBMQ quantum computer is correct.
