ColdQuanta Atom Tech for Million Qubit Quantum Computers and Beyond

ColdQuanta cools atoms to a few millionths of a degree above absolute zero and uses lasers to arrange the atoms, hold them in place, run computations on them, and read out the results. Quantum calculations, communications, and sensing are the result. Satyendra Bose and Albert Einstein discovered the fifth form of matter—the Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC). …

Reservoir Computing

Reservoir computing is an approach to make machine learning algorithms run faster. The word reservoir refers to a dynamical system. The reservoir consists of a bunch of recurrently connected units that are connected randomly. The main forms of reservoir computing use a recurrent neural network, and instead of updating all parameters of the network, it …

ColdQuanta Could Become the Fastest Scaling Quantum Computer Approach

Nextbigfuture interviewed Tom Noel, ColdQuanta’s Director of Quantum Computing and Interim CEO Dan Caruso. ColdQuanta is using neutral atoms instead of trapped ions as the basis for its quantum computers. ColdQuanta is building a functional first system now and believes they will be able to scale to the 1000s of qubits faster than competing approaches. …
