Abstract: There are many fantasies and myths associated with quantum computing and quantum error correction. Some of these are associated with the following questions. What would we really like to do with a quantum computing device? What are the real requirements for a quantum computer? How will we treat errors in practice? This talk will present an introduction/overview of quantum computing based on these questions and attempt to clarify the statements of the associated problems.
