In a bid to increase the diversity of quantum languages and toolsets, CQC have announced that they will make their t|ket language available to programmers and developers on an unrestricted basis in a boost to increase the language diversity in the quantum sector.
Peter Wittek was sadly lost whilst trekking. The researcher, famous for his work on disseminating Quantum Machine Learning as well as teaching a very poplar online course on QML, now has an annual prize named after him. Now the 2020 prize has been awarded to PhD student Roger Luo.
In the ever growing field of quantum computing keeping up with the latest developments can be a tough ask. That is why the quantum journal PRX is introducing a new class of article: Tutorials, with the aim of bridging the gap between review articles and perhaps articles with full code.
Riverlane can now begin building DeltaFlow, an operating system for quantum computers that will eventually spread worldwide. After a recent Series A funding of $20 million, the British company can now commence its operations. It has managed to get 20% of quantum hardware manufacturers to use Deltaflow since 2020. The funding will help Riverlane expand internationally.
On January 21, French President Emmanuel Macron presented a national strategy for quantum technological development. The plan is designed to transform France’s IT and technology industries. It will last for five years and is worth €1.8 billion. France can potentially become a world leader in the quantum industry with the help of this new strategy.
The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), is working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to establish a Quantum Computing Applications Lab in India. This will give India’s science and technology fields a huge boost. The new lab will give quantum computing-led projects and development a boost, and there will potentially be new scientific discoveries because of this.
Origin Quantum, the Hefei-based quantum computing company, just announced that a recent Series-A fundraising round has raised more than 100 million Yuan, or $15.45 million.
The gap between early and current quantum computing architectures and practical quantum computers is wide due to being unable to achieve fault tolerance using quantum error correction reliably. A new paper aims to bridge this gap However, error correction in quantum computers is costly, especially when performing fault-tolerant logical operations on logical qubits. Logical qubits […]
In 2020, IBM was at the top of its game, successfully keeping ahead in the quantum race. The company was able to register the most patents in machine learning and quantum computing sectors. You might wonder how many patents were issued, so we will take a look at the numbers.
The name of this machine learning model comes from a combination of artist Salvador Dalí and Pixar’s beloved robot WALL·E. A truly creative name, if we dare say. DALL.E is a 12-billion parameter version of OpenAI’s GPT-3 specialising in image generation from text.
