As we close out another year and another decade, many pundits will be thinking about the next decade and what technological and science breakthroughs we can look forward to. A lot can happen in 10 years and the excitement in the speed of innovation with developments like the web, mobile and communications have many excited. Imagine 10 years in the development of the web – we went from cutesy home pages to full blown commerce. We might disagree about exactly what the future looks like, but how do you ensure you can still find work and employment in the new landscape?
Last week, IBM’s global summer school ended successfully. It was well attended with over 5000 participating over the world and 2000+ people were watching at the same time, and a huge discord channel was created for the purpose. It was more like a conference with lots of excitement and fascination with a new rising technology: The […]
We’ll start at the beginning and show the Quantum analog of the some of the typical algorithms. Starting with the perhaps one of the most simple but useful algorithms: The Dot Product. We’ll refresh the classical version before introducing the the Quantum Equivalent.
Learning about how quantum computers work and their algorithms doesn’t have to be difficult and expensive. There are plenty of great books written on the subject that range from popular to science to extensive text books costing hundreds of dollars.
There is now a really easy way to get into Quantum Computing and Quantum Programming. Strangeworks have made a real effort with their new platform in making it easy and simply to use, intuitive with all the functionality that you need. If you want an outline of the new service currently in beta with Strangeworks, look at a previous article on the Strangeworks Community Platform.
If you don’t already know Microsoft has been working on Quantum Computing with it’s topological approach to the qubit and it’s new language Q# designed specifically for Quantum programming. Whilst Microsoft doesn’t have the hardware available in the cloud for you to run Quantum programs on, it is doing its bit to educate the world about the possible Impact of Quantum Computing. Through its new series named Quantum Impact, available on YouTube it is providing education aimed at a mass audience.
This post discusses the potential of using Quantum Variational Circuits as feature extractors and as additionally as classification layers in a classical neural network. There is implementation in qiskit with code such that the user can also run working code. It’s assumed that the reader will have a basic understanding of machine learning. Regarding requisite […]
You may not have heard of Julia the language. But I’m pretty sure you have heard of python. In this article we’ll explore some of the syntax behind the Julia language and why it might be an interesting alternative to commonly used languages such as python used in data science and in quantum information and quantum computing.
Please note: This article contains affiliate links. Want to learn more about Quantum Computing but don’t know where to start? If you want to learn more about Quantum Computing but feel daunted by the apparently huge amount of science, math, computer science and even physics to learn, we decided we would pick the best of the […]
