# Shor’s Algorithm Watch Party

What? Shor’s Algorithm watch party?

What does that mean ? We’ve been learning about Quantum Cryptography the entire month of August and now we are on to CoCreation.

What is CoCreation? Its a process through which a community learns. Hackathon/HackSeries sounds very brittle as a hack is never a sustainable solution.

Who can attend? Anyone interested in contributing to #BreakRSA project. We start with understanding the Shor’s algorithm then do a comparative study of its implementations across platforms then find ways to optimise the parameters under our control.

When? 10–11 PM IST on Zoom — 8 & 9 September —…
