Over the last two decades, the field of quantum computing has blossomed from a mathematical curiosity into a diverse area of research. In this talk, we discuss the basic concepts behind the field, including motivations for building a quantum computer, the unintuitive nature of quantum mechanics itself, and a few simple applications in the area, such as quantum teleportation and superdense coding (as time allows).
