ICTS, Zaiku Group & Its Courses like Quantum Formalism
KCL_Q_Info_Soc
As mentioned on the 'Everyone' blog, I suggest all of you study & use these, sometime in your university degree and also beyond.
^ ^ ^ Their Substack.
On Wednesday, 20th of March 2024 at 5 pm (yes, their Community Experience Manager Jacqueline Novak e-mailed this the day before the fact), Zaiku Group's 'Quantum Formalism' course featuring Eliptical Curve Cryptography (ECC) will be hosted by Zaiku Group's Founder, Bambordé, a final ECC session to share the next steps for the course including webinars and course work for certification.
Quantum Formalism is a yearly, very open course for anyone interested in the more sophistcated forms of computer science, in which they use mathematics to teach (because everything, particularly physics and computer science, is based on mathematics). Thus, it is actually aimed at people in the Natural Sciences (Maths, Physics) and, of course, Computer Scientists, if perhaps more advanced than undergraduate level of understanding/knowledge.

This particular aspect of the course
focuses on the mathematics that underpins ECC, but there are so many more things they teach:

Introducing Quantum Formalism's (QF's) Advanced Mathematics GPT
Your learning assistant for graduate-level mathematics.
An article dedicated to explaining its origins and significance:
https://quantumformalism.substack.com/p/introducing-qf-gpts?utm_source=substack&utm_medium=email
It is a second tool by Zaiku Group to help enhance your learning journey in advanced branches of pure mathematics, including Abstract Algebra, Algebraic Geometry, Algebraic Topology, and Differential Geometry. For example, you can ask questions about graduate-level mathematical concepts like 'Fiber bundles', 'Group cohomology', etc.
Leveraging the ChatGPT’s underlying capabilities of Retrieval-Augmented Generation (RAG), they hope this GPT will provide accurate and helpful responses a lot of the time. Moreover, in instances where it may not provide the correct answer, it presents an opportunity for you to solidify your understanding by identifying and correcting these errors. This interactive approach to learning can be a valuable part of your learning experience with us.
Regrettably, access to QF GPT is currently limited to users with the ChatGPT Plus or higher subscription plans. However, they remain hopeful that OpenAI will revise this policy in the future, allowing us to offer the tool to all QF community members, irrespective of their subscription status. Our goal is to make advanced mathematical learning resources widely accessible, ensuring that everyone, regardless of their plan, can benefit from the tool.
QF Abstract Mathematics 101 Bootcamp
Embark on a journey to dismantle the mathematical barriers hindering your quantum computing progress.
Four years have passed since the inception of the Quantum Formalism (QF) community. Their community has flourished during this time, nearly tripling as quantum enthusiasts flock to engage with our courses. However, with this growth, a noticeable gap has emerged between early members of the QF community, who have amassed advanced mathematical proficiency, and recent joiners, who have yet to explore our extensive course offerings.
To bridge this mathematical schism within the QF community, they are delighted to unveil the 'QF Abstract Mathematics 101 Bootcamp' set to commence annually starting in June 2024. This boot camp aims to empower new members with the foundational knowledge to catch up. The curriculum will draw from our past courses and will be structured as follows:
Module I (May - July)
Set theory
Point-set Topology
Metric Topology
Abstract Measures
Module II (August - December)
Abstract Algebra
Measure Theory & Functional Analysis
Differential Geometry
Participants will receive certifications upon completing each module. They are also excited to announce that Bambordé Baldé will return to deliver live lectures for the bootcamp, supplemented by instructional videos from Max Arnott. Additionally, they will enlist assistance from proficient community members to serve as tutors across different time zones.
✍ Registration for the bootcamp is now open: https://lnkd.in/eKZfHedg If you or someone you know could benefit from this unique opportunity to learn abstract mathematics relevant to quantum computing and other topics such as machine learning, please access the registration form via https://forms.gle/26GczEjTG9LLxUGG7. Spaces for live lectures are limited, so we encourage early registration to secure your place!
They will hold a special live Q&A session in April, during which you can learn more about the curriculum and ask questions about the bootcamp.

Google it. Lissan, you find the relevant materials on it for us to make presentable, eventually, to students to apply to. Type what you find on your Desk (e.g. dates of the next one, how long the course is, the contents, etc). The Team will consolidate it into something presentable, later.

The Coding School's Qubit by Qubit (QubitxQubit) Course(s)
There are two courses by QubitxQubit/The Coding School. One is year long, the other is a couple of months long. Google it. Lissan, you find the relevant materials on it for us to make presentable, eventually, to students to apply to. Type what you find on your Desk (e.g. dates of the next one, how long the course is, the contents, etc). The Team will consolidate it into something presentable, later.
