educationIBM and NC State Are Leading the Development of a New Quantum Ecosystem

IBM and North Carolina State University are leading the massive amount of research that will be needed to create the full quantum computer ecosystem. The standard computer industry is a nearly $4 trillion a year global ecosystem. There are many …

futureVerifying Each Computing Path of a Quantum Calculation for Correctness

researchers from MIT, Google, and elsewhere have designed a system that can verify when quantum chips have accurately performed complex computations that classical computers can’t. They trace each computing path for correct behavior. This modular verification reduces the complexity of …

futureVery Fast Quantum Calculations with Germanium Transistors

The researchers at QuTech, a collaboration of TU Delft and TNO, have built two germanium transistors that can be the building blocks for fast quantum computing. Before this work it was not possible to perform quantum calculations using only transistors. …

batteriesIBM Quantum Computer to Help Develop Next-gen Lithium Sulfur Batteries

A quantum computing breakthrough by researchers at IBM and Daimler AG, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz, uses a quantum computer to model the dipole moment of three lithium-containing molecules, which brings us one step closer the next-generation lithium sulfur (Li-S) …

ibmIBM Doubles Its Quantum Volume to 32

IBM announced a new 28-qubit quantum system backend, Raleigh and achieved a system demonstrating Quantum Volume of 32. This is double the quantum volume of 16 of a prior IBM system. Quantum Volume (QV) is a hardware-agnostic metric that we …

intelIntel Cryogenic Chip Will Speed Up Quantum Computer Development

Intel Labs unveiled a first-of-its-kind cryogenic control chip — code-named “Horse Ridge” — that will speed up development of full-stack quantum computing systems. Horse Ridge will enable control of multiple quantum bits (qubits) and set a clear path toward scaling …

quantum computersZapata Quantum Computing Makes Breakthrough With Prime Number Factoring

In 2017, Zapata Computing spun out of Harvard to develop quantum software and algorithms for business and they have received over $26 million in funding. A quantum computing start-up company called Zapata has worked with IBM to develop a new …

futureQuantum Computers and Applications Over the Next 5 Years

This article has information from the quantum computer expert John Preskill. We are going to get more and better quality qubits with lower error rates. The overhead cost for error correction improves as gate error rate declines. The Google Quantum …

ibmIBM Hackathon Leads to Quantum Cloud Integration With Trapped Ion Devices

Qiskit, is IBM’s open-source quantum computing platform and it now works with trapped ion devices – not just the IBM superconducting systems. The first company to connect Qiskit to a trapped ion device is Austrian-based startup Alpine Quantum Technologies. Their …

futureMicrosoft’s Hunt for a Topological Quantum Computer Qubit

Microsoft is developing Majorana-based topological quantum computer qubits which will be higher-quality and lower error rate qubits. A high-quality hybrid system made of InSb nanowires with epitaxial-grown Al shells has revealed ballistic superconductivity and quantized zero-bias conductance peak. This holds …
