In a superposition.com first, whurley sits down for a double interview with Jerry Chow and Jay Gambetta where they cover QISkit, Artificial Intelligence, IBM's 50-Qubit accomplishment, and the myths and misconceptions about quantum computing.
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?
If you’ve never heard of Hidetoshi Nishimori, then you might as well have never heard of quantum computing. His 1998 theory of quantum annealing paved the way for much of the progress in the field to date.
With 2.5 quintillion bytes of data being generated each day, about 90% of all the data in the world has been created in just the last 2 years. At that pace, it's no wonder we haven't made much progress toward getting more out of this data deluge.
Earlier this week I wrote about the massive new 92-acre, $10-billion research center for quantum information science that China's is building in Hefei, Anhui Province. The effects of China leading quantum technology development are chilling to many in the U.S. research community.
If you keep up with the quantum computing news, you know China has huge quantum goals. Now they're backing them up with a $10-billion "National Laboratory for Quantum Information Sciences," a nearly 4-million-square-foot campus to drive their leadership in the quantum space.
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.
Superposition and Entangled Elementary Particles? Qubits (two-state quantum-mechanical systems) are the basic unit of data in quantum computing. But what are they, exactly? How do Qubits work? Here are seven things you should know about qubits.
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.
Quantum entanglement is hard to get your head around, right? Well, meet Chris Ferrie physicist, mathematician, and father of four budding young scientists. If he can teach babies about this Quantum Entanglement, he can teach you; starting with Quantum Entanglement for Babies!
I’ve always wanted to visit Tokyo. Now I'm in this amazing city, with the added bonus of an invite to the 2017 Adiabatic Quantum Computing Conference. Received, I might add, from the amazing Hidetoshi Nishimori (Professor, Tokyo Institute of Technology).
Today I'm at BlueYard's Quantum Leap event to discuss "Funding the Quantum Ecosystem" with Siraj Khaliq from Atomico. Shu Nyatta from Softbank. Chris Perry from QuantumX. And my all-time favorite (and fellow Rick and Morty fan), Adam Goldberg (Lightspeed Ventures).
