Quantum physics has been revolutionary for technological development since its discovery, and a ‘second quantum revolution’ will potentially change technology in ways we cannot imagine. China and other nations are all scrambling to stay ahead in the quantum race, but there is one problem. Quantum physics, like all physics, is dominated by men, and this […]
As we close out another year and another decade, many pundits will be thinking about the next decade and what technological and science breakthroughs we can look forward to. A lot can happen in 10 years and the excitement in the speed of innovation with developments like the web, mobile and communications have many excited. Imagine 10 years in the development of the web – we went from cutesy home pages to full blown commerce. We might disagree about exactly what the future looks like, but how do you ensure you can still find work and employment in the new landscape?
Quantum Physics can be hard for anyone to understand and any tools that can elucidate the difficulties of the complex quantum are welcome. We report on an amazing series of seriously cool Quantum Animations exploring a variety of physics phenomena such as the Double Split experiments, particle spin, and even entanglement.
Recently, a newly published study has outlined several methods that colleges and universities can use when updating their curricula to help train new quantum workers that will enter the industry’s workforce. Rochester Institute of Technology Associate Professor Ben Zwickl, one of three researchers, suggested these methods after interviewing more than 20 managers working in quantum technology companies across the US.
Coursera have released a new Quantum Computing course that can help learners understand Quantum Computing without the huge requirement to understand the background maths. Quantum Computing, Less Formulas – More Understanding is now available on Coursera and is narrated by Sergey Sysoev. The course is aimed at those without a background in traditional quantum mechanics.
IBM Quantum’s grand project During 2020’s summer season, the U.S. saw numerous protests against systematic racism and police brutality against Black Americans. These protests were nationwide and marked a critical point for American racial and social justice. Such protests also had the effect of reminding tech companies and other industries to do more in providing […]
David Bohm was one of the most famous quantum scientists that you might not of heard of. His work on non-locality, interconnectedness and consciousness has intrigued many over the years. Now there is great movie about the Quantum physicist exploring the relation between quantum physics and consciousness.
Over the weekend (Saturday) was the live screening about the work and implications of David Bohms work. David attempted to better explain Quantum physics and the introduced concepts such as Hidden variables and Quantum potentials in his effort to better explain quantum physics.
At QZ we always get excited when we see a new framework or programming language. A team of researchers at have created a new high level language which aims to make programming quantum computers more intuitive resulting in more efficient gate usage – well that that is the aim of Silq, which is a new high-level programming language for quantum computing with a strong static type system, developed at ETH Zürich.
The sheer number of resources emerging for learners to engage in understanding quantum computing continues to grow. Now initiatives such as QuBes Camp aims at high school students.
