This week Microsoft released a preview of the "Microsoft Quantum Development Kit" to developers worldwide. The preview features Q#, Microsoft's attempt to simplify the physics for software developers so they can focus on writing functional applications.
Quantum computing is finally hurtling toward your car at breakneck speed! Well, sort of. Volkswagen and Google have announced plans to cooperate on a research project to explore the practical applications of quantum computing in the auto industry.
It's a great day at IBM Q when you make an announcement so newsworthy that you tell MIT's Technology Review you're "really proud of this" and "it’s a big frickin’ deal." That's what Dario Gil, IBM’s Director of quantum computing, got to do last Friday. Why the bravado?
The Eisenhower Fellowships selected the 11 American Fellows for 2018. And I'm thrilled to report I'm one of them! That's right, I am very proud that I have been chosen as a 2018 United States Eisenhower Fellow.
The incredible work scientists are doing in quantum computing blows me away every day. On Monday, Google announced the release of OpenFermion, a new open-source platform for chemists to compile, analyze and simulate chemistry problems on a quantum computer.
IBM has created a method for calculating quantum amplitudes using far less memory than current methods. Allowing the company to break the 49 qubit barrier and use a classical computer to simulate a quantum computer with 56 qubits. Read on to learn why I'm so excited about this.
We got some surprising news from Intel this week. In a press release, the chip king touted the successful fabrication of a 17-qubit superconducting chip by its quantum computing division. The chip is about the size of a quarter (closer to a half-dollar with the packaging).
Microsoft made some pretty significant announcements in their pursuit of Quantum Computing yesterday at MSIgnite 2017. The video above doesn't cover all of them but it does provide an overview into Microsoft's ambitions for quantum computing in under 3 minutes.
Hello, Quantum World! I'm kicking off the new year in a superposition, and I'm all in on quantum computing. Wait, what is quantum computing? I have been watching this new field from the sidelines for years now with growing excitement. I believe this technology will change the world.
