It is no secret that we like the Julia language. We think it has some of the great benefits of languages such as python but with features like linear algebra built-in. Julia is also a fast language to run code and easy to learn. We have in the past written articles on Julia such as Could Julia replace Python and be transformational in Quantum Computing? and Learning the Julia programming language for free. The latest JuliaCon 2021 has been announced for those wanting to take part virtually.
Honeywell, the developers of Ion Trap quantum technology have announced that they will take a majority stake in the Cambridge firm. Honeywell is a publicly listed technology company that has many products ranging from control systems to quantum computers. The move will help cement Honeywell’s push into quantum utilising the expertise that has been built up by CQC in Quantum Machine Learning, quantum languages (such a t|ket>) and NLP.
IBM in partnership with the UK government has launched a new 210-million-pound AI and quantum computing centre in North West England with the hopes that this investment will cement the UK’s global status as a science superpower.
Cambridge Quantum has announced the discovery of a new algorithm that will accelerate quantum Monte Carlo integration. This new algorithm will shorten the time and will offer an advantage to the finance industry in its quantum computing integration efforts.
On May 12th, comprehensive research titled “CMOS-based cryogenic control of silicon quantum circuits“ was published in Nature science journal. The research was undertaken by Tu Delft University in the Netherlands and Intel. In this research, the researchers have conducted several experiments and had reported a cryogenic CMOS control chip that operates at 3 kelvin and then outputs […]
Two days ago on May 18th Erik Lucero, the leading engineer at Google Quantum AI, proudly announced the opening of Google’s new AI Campus. Built with the sole purpose of leading the research for the first practical Quantum computer by the year 2029. With this investment, Google will join with the likes of well-established players […]
In February, we happily announced the news about the formation of the first SPAC company in the Quantum sector, with the merger of IonQ and DMY Technology Group Inc. This merger marked a new era in the Quantum Computing sector and has placed IonQ as the first public Quantum computing company. Now IonQ has started offering a […]
As nations get excited by the prospect of a new industrial revolution sparked by developments in Quantum Computing, Germany has decided to back the sector with €2 billion in funding (around $2.4 billion) over the next four years. The funds will support the whole quantum sector which includes the fundamental technologies which enable Quantum Computing […]
Two of the worlds leading research institutes have joined forced to create a Quantum Hub. ETH Zurich and the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) have established a joint centre for the development of quantum computers. The remit of the new organisation is to develop and advance Quantum computing based around two technologies: Ion Trap and Superconducting qubits.
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.
