Japanese researchers are creating a new field of science called cluster molecular electronics.

quantum computersQuantum Technology Overview

John Preskill, Director of the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter, California Institute of Technology, presented an overview of quantum technology at the 2018 Q2B Conference. He indicates that NISQ (Noisy Qubit) systems with 50-100 qubits will be commercially available …

futureIonQ Path to Thousands of Qubits and Quantum Supremacy

Quantum Supremacy is defined as the point when quantum computers become faster than regular computers. Quantum computers can become thousands of times more powerful when the number of qubits are doubled. In December, 2018, IonQ announced at the Q2B conference …

machine learningPractical Use of D-Wave Quantum Annealing

Murray Thom is VP of software and cloud services at D-Wave Systems. D-Wave currently sells a 2000 qubit quantum annealing machine and provides access to the system via a cloud service. D-Wave will provide an upgraded 5600 qubit system with …

futureMeasuring Quantum Computer Power With IBM Quantum Volume Metric

If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it. IBM created the Quantum Volume metric to measure the power of quantum computers. Quantum Computers have the potential to be vastly more powerful than regular computers. IBM created a Quantum Volume …

ibmIBM Quantum Computer Roadmap

IBM has published a roadmap for improving quantum computers based upon a “quantum volume” metric. IBM first defined Quantum Volume in 2017 but has updated the definition. As greater understanding is gained about quantum computers then the Quantum Volume metric …

newsProgress Towards Using Quantum Computers for Solving Quantum Chemistry and Machine Learning

IonQ used its trapped-ion computer and a scalable co-design framework for solving chemistry problems. They applied it to compute the ground-state energy of the water molecule. The robust operation of the trapped ion quantum computer yields energy estimates with errors …
