microsoftMicrosoft Can Control 50,000 Qubits But Large Qubit System Still Must be Made

Microsoft’s Quantum Lab located at the University of Sydney made breakthroughs in qubit control technology that allow us to scale beyond the physical limitations of current conventional systems. They now have the ability to control up to 50,000 qubits through …

futureQuantum Computing Progress is Way Faster Than Classical Computers

IBM says they could use 250 petabytes of memory and the best supercomputer to match a 53-qubit Google quantum computer on a particular problem. Scott Aaronson notes that this clearly shows that quantum supremacy is clearly emerging. IBM paper says …

futureIBM Disputes Google’s Quantum Supremacy Claim

Google claims their 54 qubit quantum computer can solve a problem in 200 seconds that would take a regular supercomputer 10,000 years but IBM says it would take 2.5 days or much less for a supercomputer to solve. Nextbigfuture notes …

futureNew Superconducting Material Could Make Disruption Resistant Quantum Computers

In the new study, Yufan Li and colleagues found that a ring of β-Bi2Pd already naturally exists between two states in the absence of an external magnetic field. Current can inherently circulate both clockwise and counterclockwise, simultaneously, through a ring …

futureWith Quantum SpeedUp Proven Will There Be Quantum Manhattan Projects?

Google will likely announce quantum speedup and quantum supremacy has been proven using the random circuit selection problem. It is pretty clear that physics allows quantum speedup. Will there be Quantum Manhattan Projects? Phase 1a – Scale existing superconducting technology …

artificial intelligenceGoogle Quantum Supremacy Problem Involved Random Number Sampling

An important milestone for quantum computers seems to have been reached with Google using a quantum computer to solve a problem 1 billion times faster than the fastest supercomputer in the world. This could be the beginning of quantum supremacy. …

cloud computingIBM 53 Qubit Cloud Accessible Quantum Computer and Nextbigfuture Interviews Bob Sutor, VP – IBM Q Strategy

IBM opened the IBM Quantum Computation Center in New York State. The new center expands the world’s largest fleet of commercial quantum systems existing beyond the confines of experimental lab environments. This includes five 20-qubit systems with a Quantum Volume …
