Strangeworks launches new quantum ecosystem to globalize and humanize access to Quantum Technologies

Strangeworks the Texas based company that is pioneering the interaction of man and (quantum) computer has launched a new initiative to make getting quantum savvy even easier. The new initiative sees a three pronged approach including Strangeworks QS (Quantum Syndicate) which aims to to unify all technology hardware accessible with one platform (computers based on super conducting, trapped ions, trapped atoms, annealers, and photonic technologies, among others).

Will Amazon continue Quantum Computing as Jeff Bezos steps down?

We have seen many projects start and then be dropped within the big tech space. Look at Apple’s Car project which was hiring developers and engineers away from the likes of Tesla – only for the project to be disbanded. Now it looks like the project at Apple is actually continuing. What so of Amazon which has announced that Jeff Bezos is leaving the company he founded. Will the Quantum Computing effort continue in his absence? Could the company be broken up into retail elements and AWS (Amazon Web Services) for example?

Quantum photonic platforms allow for an edge in Quantum Supremacy

These past years have seen quantum news centre on a select few exotic platforms primarily, including supercooled- and superconducting-qubit platforms like Google’s Sycamore, as well as trapped-ion or trapped-atom computers. The former was 2019’s evidence of quantum supremacy, a triumph for Google. The latter platform is proven to effectively simulate complex physical quantum dynamics.
