Taught by lauded Harvard professor Michael Sandel, Justice explores critical analysis of classical and contemporary theories of justice, including discussion of present-day applications. Topics include affirmative action, income distribution, same-sex marriage, the role of markets, debates about rights (human rights and property rights), arguments for and against equality, dilemmas of loyalty in public and private life. The course invites learners to subject their own views on these controversies to critical examination.
In this course you will engage in a series of challenges designed to increase your own happiness and build more productive habits.

This course on quantum information science is a collective effort to further advance knowledge and understanding in quantum information and quantum computing.
The purpose of this course is to show the basic ideas of quantum informatics, as well as the physical laws and basic mathematical principles. Much attention is paid to such phenomena as quantum entanglement, quantum parallelism, and quantum interference. It is these phenomena that underlie most of the known quantum protocols and algorithms, which are devoted to individual sections of this course.
Квантовые вычисления — это технологии будущего, в которых остро нуждаются уже в современном мире. Потребность в специалистах технологии будущего подтверждает актуальность данного курса сегодня. В течение курса учащиеся поймут где точки соприкосновения физики и информатики, знакомятся с алгоритмами для квантового компьютера, алгоритмами Шора и алгоритмами Гровера. По результатам обучения слушатели получат знания и навыки в области анализа и проектирования квантовых алгоритмов.
