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 […]
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.
