The quantum stream at CDL Toronto brought up together entrepreneurs, scientists, and investors in quantum technologies. And also, many companies like D-Wave, Rigetti, IBM Q, Xanadu, and Zapata computing have joined the CDL Quantum Stream as well. This program will aid the building of successful ventures in the emerging domain of quantum computing, ML, optimization, […]
We’ve widened our information set to include Quantum related companies too (not just quantum computing) – some of those companies are funding the very Quantum Start-ups that we write about (For example IP Group funds Quantum Motion). Other such as Oxford Instruments, as their name suggests provide some of the supportive (refrigeration) technologies that allow super cooled qubits to operate.
ON February 10, NEC Corporation and ParityQC announced their collaboration in quantum annealing. The former will be the first around the world to implement ParityQC’s quantum annealing software. ParityQC’s Architecture is its new solution to solving optimisation problems on a quantum computer. It also has its own superconducting parametron quantum devices. Using this hardware, quantum […]
ColdQuanta recently announced that $32 million was raised in Series A funding, and there will be more to come. Co-led by Global Frontier Investments and LCP Quantum Partners, they were joined by current investor Maverick Ventures and a new investor, Foundry Group. These funds will be used to develop quantum computers, quantum positioning systems, and real-time quantum signal processing.
You might have heard a lot about cloud technologies and be familiar with the offerings from a variety of vendors such as Amazon (AWS), Google (GCP) and of course Microsoft with it’s Azure service. But now there is Azure Quantum – which Microsoft is opening to early adopters.
Qiskit Metal is a toolkit designed to allow automated development and designing of quantum devices. It has a flexible interface to let users design their own devices before exporting them with a click. With Metal, complicated processes are made simpler and faster than ever.
As the race for Quantum Computing heats-up, Germany often seems suspiciously quiet from the perspective of the rest of the world. Historically Germany was one of the leaders of the Quantum revolution that began in the 1920’s and one hundred years later it is making use of its heavy research and industrial might to ensure that it remains core to the development of the Quantum industry.
John Martinis was Google’s former head quantum scientist, allowing the dominant company to achieve quantum supremacy before recently joining Silicon Quantum Computing, an Australian startup, validating its approach to quantum technology.
Across different industries, there are always complex optimisation problems to be encountered, including routing vehicles, managing supply chains, assessing risks, optimising portfolios, operating power grids, and more. Even with numerous complicated algorithms developed to efficiently handle select problems, a lot of real-world optimisation problems are still difficult to optimise. This is despite many advancements in […]
IBM Quantum’s grand project During 2020’s summer season, the U.S. saw numerous protests against systematic racism and police brutality against Black Americans. These protests were nationwide and marked a critical point for American racial and social justice. Such protests also had the effect of reminding tech companies and other industries to do more in providing […]
