Microsoft Will Use Quantum Tools with Classical Computing

Microsoft’s topological qubit architecture is not ready. Microsofts Nadella highlighted a “quantum on classical” approach. Quantum tools will be used alongside classical computation to optimize the algorithms for simulating complex phenomena.

Quantum-inspired algorithms can optimize MRI scans. Once the scan is done, the 3-D visualization can be viewed using Microsoft’s HoloLens augmented-reality headset.

“Working with Azure has given us improvement in speed and about a 30% improvement in precision,” Mark Griswold, a professor of radiology at CWRU, said on the video. “The results we’re getting are allowing us to see diseases earlier than befor, and to quantify the treatments that we’re giving.”
