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.
The heated presidential election of 2020 has had citizens on edge for weeks as pundits try to predict the outcome. Now the outcome is clear or not so clear that Joe Biden has won, was ask what will happen to the Quantum Industry.
Microsoft is one of the most well known software companies on the planet that has reaches into operating systems, games (with Xbox) and even hardware. Microsoft also has numerous research centres which are focused on cutting edge computer science. As you might expect, Microsoft is working on Quantum Computing. We take a look at how Microsoft is helping people learn about the Quantum space, it’s Quantum programming language and software stack.
Xanadu, one of the hottest Canadian start-ups has published it’s Blueprint for a Scalable Photonic Fault-Tolerant Quantum Computer. The extensive publication outlines how to build a modular photonic based Quantum Computer. There are a few candidates for Qubits – ranging from Ion traps to super conducting and photonic is one such candidate that has produced enormous potential for scale-up.
This year due to covid we will be attending from the comfort of the QZ office. We went last year and were very impressed with the not only the turnout, great talks but also the attendees. We very much enjoyed. Sadly this year, no food, but will be there virtually on the 6th of November and we hope you will be too.
Microsoft has been historically very strong in providing programming tools and also creating frameworks for developers, so it could as no surprise that Microsoft has heavily invested in building quantum tools to aid developers in their quest of building quantum circuits especially with the language Q#.
You might have heard a lot about cloud technologies and be familiar with the offerings from a variety of vendors such as Amazon (AWS), Google (GCP) and of course Microsoft with it’s Azure service. But now there is Azure Quantum – which Microsoft is opening to early adopters.
Honeywell has generated a lot of Quantum news of late with its continued announcements of ever increasingly more powerful Quantum computers. Honeywell continues to make headlines with its progress towards bringing Quantum Computing to the masses.
