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.
U. Maryland commits $25 million to incubator for quantum startupsLenzer said that the 24-member Mid-Atlantic Quantum Alliance, which is led by Maryland, cold-called 130 quantum computing startups around the world to ask about needs. The University of Maryland will house an incubator for quantum computing startups, offering access to high-quality…
Top 10 Quantum Computing Companies to Watch Out in 2021More than 150 user-developed quantum apps, such as tools for airline schedules, chemistry modeling, engineering, health, and automotive design, are powered by the company. This Quantum Core, which can be used in a number of quantum systems, also helps with global…
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 […]
Is quantum computing pharma’s next big disruptor?In turn, pharma, and the wider life sciences industry, has demonstrated interest in exploring ways that quantum computers could drive efficiencies and optimise processes. In a future-casting 2030 vision report, life sciences membership organisation Pistoia Alliance examined technological opportunities that might impact the pharma…
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.
