Do we have reality all wrong? The Evolutionary Argument Against Reality by Donald Hoffman

No doubt the quantum world is very strange. Concepts such as superposition and entanglement abound, which researchers aim to take advantage of in Quantum Computing. The book Evolutionary Argument Against Reality by Donald Hoffman takes aim at the world in which we inhabit, as Hoffman claims that our very understanding of reality is shaped by the evolutionary process and that process takes precedence over the real truth of our existence.

We talk to author Frank Zickert on his book on Quantum Machine Learning, how he got started and how the field is developing

QML or Quantum Machine Learning is a hot topic amongst those at the leading edge of technology. Many companies such as Xanadu, IBM, Honeywell and Cambridge Quantum are busy exploring and exploiting the field. Frank Zickert PhD is an IT professional who has taught himself Quantum Machine Learning over the last few years. In his book: Hands-On Quantum Machine Learning With Python, Frank distils his learning into the field, both Quantum and QML with the aim of taking away the difficulties of learning about these two nascent fields. We wanted to know more about the motivation behind the book and about Frank. We also have a brief review of the book.

New Quantum book inspired by Dungeons and Dragons: “Dungeons and Qubits” helps readers learn Quantum Computing and Qiskit

We love initiatives to help people learn quantum computing and quantum computing coding. The latest initiative from Brian Siegelwax is a very different beast from the standard Quantum Computing textbook. The book originated from a conversation Brian had with a colleague about how to create a new Quantum Computing book that wasn’t a total yawn.

How Classic software developers can learn Quantum Computing

The quantum revolution is on its way. Whilst researchers are still finding the killer applications that take Quantum Computing into prime time that hasn’t stopped developers learning the basis of Quantum Computing and how to program qubits in a range of devices and simulators that come from the Likes of IBM, Microsoft and Google plus lesser known start-ups such as CQC (Cambridge Quantum Computing) and Xanadu.

Business Books (Bezonomics)

In addition to our reviews on Quantum Computing that include Quantum Books, we also read a lot of science and Business books. As we see so many Quantum Start-ups enter the field, we thought we would include some of our best business books that we have enjoyed that you many also like and gain value from – even if you are not creating your own Quantum Business Venture.

Learning Quantum Mechanics doesn’t have to be traumatic

Unfortunately some have developed a fear of maths and fear of science – especially physics. Sometimes this is literally just down to the way its taught. To better understand the field of Quantum Computing, you might want to also have a look at understanding quantum mechanics – the foundation on which it is all built. We will look one book which is a great introduction to Quantum Mechanics. The book is written by the legendary Leonard Susskind who is professor of Theoretical physics at Stanford University.

Quantum Computing: A Gentle Introduction Review

Published by MIT press and relatively inexpensive for a textbook coming in at just under $30 the book by Rieffel and Polak is a fully fledged Quantum Computing textbook. It might not be as common or as popular as Mike and Ike (The Quantum Bible) but I think it represents extremely good value for money for those wanting a little more detail but not so much detail it is over-whelming.
