Honeywell expects its new quantum algorithm to solve real-world problems sooner than previously expected

Honeywell recently has demonstrated that their new holographic quantum dynamics (holoQUADS) algorithm has accurately simulated a quantum dynamics model, this simulation was completed with fewer qubits than the traditional methods. This new algorithm had used nine qubits in order to simulate 32 spins – or localized electrons. For comparison, the traditional methods required one qubit per spin.

Quantum Machine Learning making it to Primetime with new Qiskit release 0.25

We covered the recent release of Qiskit 0.25 which is one of the most popular Quantum toolsets and languages. Supported by IBM, the framework has an established following, and therefore when there are major changes to the framework, you could say the zeitgeist changes. That major change amongst a few others is the inclusion of a dedicated Quantum Machine Learning Module.

Australian Student’s Quantum Code gets the attention of Amazon

Quantum Computers are noisy. Researchers have been exploring way to reduce the errors that existing Quantum computers inherently have. So called NISQ era devices are Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum require error correction in order to function, which is an intense field of research. So when a Sydney based student published a new scheme for error correction that can offer a large advantage over existing schemes, it attracted the interest of industry and academia.

Bold New Version of IBM’s Qiskit Quantum Development Kit released includes Quantum Machine Learning and New Nature Module

One of the most popular Quantum languages and toolsets, Qiskit, now gets a new upgrade to version 025 which includes some new modules such as Nature. The already popular package Aqua gets a replacement which is aimed, not just at Chemistry but Physics too. There are also enhancements to Quantum Machine Learning (QML) which see Qiskit releasing a Machine Learning Module. QML has been perhaps one of the biggest areas of interest from Quantum Computing in application to a number of fields, so no surprise that the Qiskit toolset now sports QML capability. In total there are now four additional modules: Qiskit Nature (which will replace Aqua), Finance, Optimization and Machine Learning.

Gil Kalai’s Argument Against Quantum Computers – A Very Short Introduction

It is good to hear alternatives and from all sides of the Quantum debate and for that reason we introduce you to Prof. Gil Kalai. Gil has been one of the most vocal in sounding his objections against large scale Quantum Computers or HQCA (“Huge Quantum Computational Advantage”) , akin to quantum supremacy or quantum advantage. Gil has attracted comments from luminaries of the field such as Scott Aaronson. His latest post on this this (argument against quantum computing) has been published on his blog.
