Venture capital firm Index Ventures and others including Section 32 and AI-focused Radical Ventures have raised $40 million for Cohere who provide pioneering natural language processing (NLP) models. The project involves Turing Award winner Geoffrey Hinton and AI experts Pieter Abbeel, Fei-Fei Li among others. Joining the board of Cohere is Mike Volpi from Index Ventures, tasked with expanding the team and fast-tracking the development of the platform.
A radical new technique has been discovered to control millions of spin qubits by Quantum engineers from UNSW Sydney. Dr. Jarryd Pla and his team has made a quantum leap on the road to a full-scale quantum computer, in doing so they have also made the development of near-term silicon quantum processors possible.
The Inter-American Development Bank, IDB Lab, Cambridge Quantum (CQ) and Tecnológico de Monterrey, working together have developed a cryptographic layer to resolve four potential threats to blockchain networks posed by the advent of quantum computer development. Threats Of the four, each threat area relies on cryptography and keys which are vulnerable to attacks by quantum […]
Microsoft is offering up to $10,000 in Quantum computing credits for users wanting to run on the Microsoft Azure quantum stack. The hardware on offer is IonQ and Honeywell. Credit allocation will be determined based on the potential impact and value for the quantum ecosystem either from a research, educational, or commercial point of view […]
There is no question that machine learning and AI have taken the world by storm, with myriad products and services exploiting the ability of computers to learn from data without providing explicit rules. Whether self-driving cars from the likes of Tesla or extracting labels from images or even playing Atari video games, the field has created a great deal of excitement for its impact on almost every aspect of our lives. It should come as no surprise then, that researchers and developers are keen to find new and novel ways to exploit quantum computing to achieve learning. Here we take a first look at the new book by Frank Zickert which aims to be a hands-on guide to learning all about QML or Quantum Machine Learning.
Oxford Quantum Circuits (OQC) has unveiled its new Quantum Computing as a Service or QCaaS platform. This new platform will give the OQC customers a big step ahead of the competition by implementing quantum technology on the cloud. OCQ has created a beta list of companies that are interested in their new service and want to take advantage of the benefits that quantum computers offer in comparison to classical computing.
In what would have been a truly momentous day if England had won a major football event in over 50 years coupled with Virgin Galatic sending its founder into space, the day could have gone down in history as a major achievement: one for sporting achievement and one for science. Sadly the football didn’t happen, […]
More than a hundred tech companies have just become World Economic Forum Technology Pioneers. This year’s group includes many of the leaders in robotics and cybersecurity, as well as other companies that use artificial intelligence, in order to make healthcare more accessible and also will offer financial access. Zimbabwe, El Salvador, and Ethiopia were represented […]
Multiverse Computing (MC) Is one of the leading companies in quantum-inspired algorithms for finance. Multiverse Computing has announced that during the first six months of 2021 managed to close agreements worth more than $1M in Europe and North America. This is an enormous turnover, especially for a quantum company. This success has been achieved by […]
