Streaming sessions

Every year, we bring together some of the top minds in quantum to share their latest research, discuss pertinent topics and have a bit of a laugh in our Streaming Sessions — and this year is no exception. We’ve got a star-studded lineup of speakers and a variety of talk themes for you to explore this year. Check it out:

QHack 2023 Speakers

Want to speed up your hybrid algorithms, get insights into quantum machine learning, preview the future of quantum programming, or make quantum-inspired art? Look no further! The QHack 2023 speaker sessions are here. Featuring high-profile guests and a dazzling array of topics, we have curated a selection of talks that run the gamut from introducing the basics of quantum computing to cutting-edge research.

This year, we’re also adding lots of demos from our amazing sponsors so that you can get the inside scoop and be at the top of your game when it comes to the latest quantum software and hardware.

Coding challenges

Whether you’re a coding novice or expert, the QHack Coding Challenges have something for you. An array of challenges varying from easy to fiendishly difficult, and backed by an A+ support system, are ready and waiting for you. Starting February 16th, grab a team of up to 4 or tackle these challenges solo for your chance to win some awesome prizes. And if you’re just starting out, we have a series of Tutorial Challenges you can try in advance starting on February 13th.

Open hackathon

Have a creative idea that you’re ready to share with the world? Or need a project seed to get you on the right track? Either way, we have you covered and can’t wait to see what you build!

Prizes for the open hackathon are valued at over $100K and include life-changing experiences like internships and collaborations with some of the top quantum computing companies out there.
