Quantum Computing


The practicality of quantum computing hangs on the integrity of the quantum bit, or qubit. Qubits, the logic elements of quantum computers, are coherent two-level systems that represent quantum information. Each qubit has the strange ability to be in a quantum superposition, carrying aspects of both states simultaneously, enabling a quantum version of parallel computation. …

Intel Labs, in collaboration with QuTech ‑ a partnership between TU Delft and TNO (Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research) ‑ outlines key technical features of its new cryogenic quantum control chip “Horse Ridge” in a research paper released at the 2020 International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco. The paper unveils key technical capabilities of Horse Ridge …

At CES 2020, IBM announced the expansion of the IBM Q Network™, which now includes over 100 organizations, across multiple industries, including: Airline, Automotive, Banking and Finance, Energy, Insurance, Materials and Electronics.  Anthem, Delta Air Lines, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo and Woodside Energy are among the latest organizations to begin to explore practical applications using quantum …

IBM and the University of Tokyo announced today an agreement to partner to advance quantum computing and make it practical for the benefit of industry, science and society. IBM and the University of Tokyo will form the Japan – IBM Quantum Partnership, a broad national partnership framework in which other universities, industry, and government can engage. The partnership will have …

At Microsoft Quantum, our ambition is to help solve some of the world’s most complex challenges through the world’s most scalable quantum system. To deliver on that promise, we’ve been working together with a global quantum community to innovate across every layer of the quantum stack – from applications and software down to control and …

Amazon Braket is a fully managed service that makes it easy for scientists, researchers, and developers to explore, build, test, and run quantum computing algorithms. Amazon Braket helps you get started learning about quantum computing by providing a development environment to build quantum algorithms, test them on simulated quantum computers, and run them on your …

In quantum computers, generating more errors in a given operation may help reveal the right answer, according to new research. Unlike conventional computers, the processing in quantum-based machines is noisy, which produces error rates dramatically higher than those of silicon-based computers. So quantum operations repeat thousands of times to make the correct answer stand out …

Google recently revealed a quantum computer which they claim can solve in minutes what a problem a present-day supercomputer would need thousands of years to solve. They published their findings in a Nature article, Quantum supremacy using a programmable superconducting processor. With this breakthrough, Google claims to have attained quantum supremacy. Prior to this, a draft …

IBM (NYSE: IBM) announced last September 18 the opening of the IBM Quantum Computation Center in New York State. The new center expands the world’s largest fleet of quantum computing systems for commercial and research activity that exist beyond the confines of experimental lab environments. The IBM Quantum Computation Center will support the growing needs of …

Quantum computing has the potential to revolutionize technology, medicine, and science by providing faster and more efficient processors, sensors, and communication devices. But transferring information and correcting errors within a quantum system remains a challenge to making effective quantum computers. How Do Quantum Computers Work? A quantum computer operates on the principles of quantum mechanics, …
