Only recently IBM published it’s Quantum Computing Roadmap. Never sleeping, big blue has made new waves with its recent announcement where [IBM] unveiled a plan to radically speed-up adoption of quantum computing by streamlining and simplifying the quantum programming tools.
Could a domain of science that begun in earnest 100 years ago become the foundation for the future of technology? The Quantum phenomena that were observed and studied by the likes of Einstein, Planck and Heisenberg could provide the foundation for the next technological revolution.
The United States has Silicon Valley, the UK has Silicon Roundabout and Silicon Fen, but what about Scotland – technically part of the United Kingdom? Famous for some of the best universities around, so it should be no surprise that Quantum technologies feature heavily in the portfolio. Welcome to Quantum Glen. It’s not all Whiskey […]
Coecke was previously a Senior Scientific Advisor to CQC (Cambridge Quantum Computing) with a focus on developing and building a leading Quantum Natural Language Processing (QNLP). Prof Bob Coecke has been specialising in QNLP for a number of years and is currently at Oxford University where he as tenure in the Computer science department.
As Yogi Berra once said: “It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future”. But after a monumental tumultuous 2020, perhaps there are some trends that we can turn to as we look to the future of Quantum Computing. So here we go, here are 4 predictions or trends of 2021.
Since we covered the AWS (Amazon Web Services) service that enables quantum hardware on Amazons cloud platform (bra-ket) which employs third party hardware, it seems Amazon is keen to actually build its own quantum computing hardware. Many might argue it was only a matter of time, as Amazon has past experience of looking at trends and acting on them. It uses data heavily and mines for trends and opportunities. So if Amazon is interested in building a Quantum Computer this is good news, it has obviously seen some clear advantages of building its own devices.
We reported a while back (just a few weeks) on Xanadu’s open source blueprint for a photonic quantum computer. Recently Ish Dhand gave a talk at the Byron Bay Quantum Computing Workshop and we thought we would also share it here.
In a recent article published by Ivan Deutsch titled: Harnessing the Power of the Second Quantum Revolution, Ivan outlines the quantum landscape. Published in the 2nd edition of PRX QUANTUM, dedicated to Quantum Computing and technology, the work outlines and reviews the state of the current Quantum industry.
Are we reliving the dot-com boom of the late 90’s which ended up seeing the downfall of a number of fledgling companies such as Pets.com? Out of that wreckage we saw plenty of wealth creation with companies such as Amazon and Google that have continued to innovate and provide many of the services we use today. Are we now facing the same issue of heady tech company valuations that are bleeding over into the Quantum Technology sector?
The German centre famous for super computing is offering its services in the quest for quantum computing. It can provide both simulation on and of qubit systems of up to 48 qubits. On service is high performance computing for simulating the real-time dynamics of quantum computers up to 48 qubits.
