Microsoft launch new Quantum Computing Learning Resource from Garage

Microsoft has been busy building up its learning resources to help developers navigate their way into Quantum Computing. In their new initiative, built in their Microsoft Garage, by over a dozen Microsoft staff, the resource aims to make developing with the Microsoft stack and Q# easier. Divided into three phases, students will be taken right the way from qubit basics to state-of-the-art in quantum systems.

Microsoft ups the ante in push for Quantum literacy with new Quantum course recommender

Microsoft is one of the top three language players in the Quantum space where it supports the open source language Q#. Other open-source languages such as Qiskit and Cirq from IBM and Google are challengers to be the most adopted Quantum languages employed by developers and researchers. In the quest to own the Quantum Computing ecosystem, each language is supporting existing developers and hoping to bring new developer’s into the fold. Now Microsoft is making it easier for learners to find their level of quantum computing and aims to build a curriculum around their needs.

Microsoft’s New Quantum Computing Course: Quantum computing foundations

We feature quite a few different Quantum courses. In the past we have covered courses from IBM, EdX, Coursera, Brilliant and Microsoft. We now can report there is another instalment in the popular Quantum Computing series from Microsoft. The course is named quantum computing foundations and aims to help users begin exploring quantum computing and optimization (one of the early but indeed very useful applications of Quantum Computing).

Amazon decides to build its own Quantum Computer

Since we covered the AWS (Amazon Web Services) service that enables quantum hardware on Amazons cloud platform (bra-ket) which employs third party hardware, it seems Amazon is keen to actually build its own quantum computing hardware. Many might argue it was only a matter of time, as Amazon has past experience of looking at trends and acting on them. It uses data heavily and mines for trends and opportunities. So if Amazon is interested in building a Quantum Computer this is good news, it has obviously seen some clear advantages of building its own devices.
