Researchers are attempting to use quantum computing and machine learning in order to gain a better understanding of holographic duality. The study is the first systematic survey for quantum computing and deep-learning as it pertains to matrix quantum mechanics, and lays the groundwork for addressing more complicated... Read more...
Quantum computing might be our path to real science-fiction computing power, and it's been making grand strides in the last couple of years. About two years ago, Google announced that it had achieved "quantum supremacy," which means that its quantum computers were able to perform specific tasks much faster than... Read more...
Quantum computers are really, really bad at most of the things we use computers for, but they're impossibly-superior at certain, select tasks. One of those tasks happens to be breaking encryption. That's a concern for security agencies the world over, but it's also a concern for people who are heavily invested in... Read more...
Quantum computing is the next big field of research that could topple how we use computers today. Now, IBM has proved and demonstrated that quantum computers have advantages over their classical counterparts. To understand what IBM has done, we must first grasp how quantum computing works today. As the blog post... Read more...
During yesterday’s Google I/O event, we heard about several updates to Google software products, including Android 12 and Wear OS. Google also managed to bring in actor Michael Peña to tour the new Google quantum computing and AI campus. Today, we get to take a closer look at it so let us dive right in… Google’s... Read more...
Early in 2020, we covered a cryogenic control chip from Intel called Horse Ridge that was destined to help make quantum computing more feasible. Since then, Intel has created a second generation of the chip, and the partnership between Intel and QuTech has only grown. Now, the collaboration is paying dividends as the... Read more...
Several years ago, Microsoft succinctly explained why it was making big investments in quantum computing, saying the short answer is "quantum computing will change everything." The longer answer is a bit more complex, but the general takeaway is that Microsoft wants to deliver quantum computing solutions to its... Read more...
Quantum computing is a fascinating and continually developing field that may drive computers' future and fundamentally change the world. While that is happening, people still need networks to communicate over the internet. As such, scientists with Fermilab and other research institutes have been applying quantum... Read more...
Every so often, Google and IBM like to flex their developments in quantum computing (Google last year claimed it had achieved quantum supremacy), a highly complex way of crunching data to potentially solve problems much faster than classical computing. But they are not the only players. Enter a company called D-Wave... Read more...
Less than six months after researchers at Google claimed to have achieved quantum supremacy, a notion IBM rejects, Honeywell has come out of the woodwork and essentially told them both to step beside, saying it achieved a breakthrough that will allow the company to introduce the world's most powerful quantum computer...

Looking ahead, quantum computing has the potential to dramatically alter the technology landscape, though several challenges will have to be overcome for this to be a feasible reality. In an effort towards getting us there, Intel and QuTech—a partnership between Delft University of Technology and TON (Netherlands... Read more...
Scientists at the University of Bristol and the Technical University of Denmark have made an incredible breakthrough discovery. Researchers for the institutions have achieved quantum teleportation between two computer chips for the first time. They were able to send information from one chip to another, instantly...

While Intel is currently embroiled in a x86-64 processor battle with AMD, the company is also dipping its toes into the future of computing: quantum computing to be exact. The company today announced the fruits of a partnership with QuTech to introduce the first cryogenic control chip for quantum computers. The... Read more...
There's a good old fashioned nerd fight brewing between the eggheads at IBM and Google. Don't worry, it's not physical—it's a war of words and theoretical concepts. What sparked the debate is Google's claim of achieving "quantum supremacy" with Sycamore, a system outfitted with a 53-qubit processor and how it performs... Read more...
We are a little bit closer to making quantum computing an everyday reality. Google researchers reportedly created a quantum computer that has achieved “quantum supremacy”. The quantum computer was able to solve equations that would be nearly impossible for a supercomputer. Google researchers recently developed... Read more...
Beam me up, Scotty. Scientists have recently announced that they have achieved complex quantum teleportation. Multidimensional teleportation could have a strong impact on quantum computing and communication. Researchers from the Austrian Academy of Sciences, University of Vienna, and University of Science and Technology of China successfully Read more...
Researchers from Oregon State University (OSU) have announced that they have created a new material that is a key step in creating the next generation of supercomputers. These next-generation quantum computers will be far faster than current supercomputers while consuming much less energy. The scientists on the... Read more...
Google has developed a new quantum processor called Bristlecone that it hopes will be instrumental in building a quantum computer capable of solving real-world problems. At the American Physical Society meeting in Los Angeles where the chip was unveiled, Google said the purpose of its gate-based superconducting system... Read more...
Coffee Lake is not the only thing Intel has been brewing up. The world's largest semiconductor company announced the delivery of a 17-qubit superconducting test processor for quantum computing to QuTech, its quantum research partner based in the Netherlands. Intel fabricated the chip with a unique design to improve... Read more...
IBM Research is giving back to the world today with the announcement that its quantum processor is now accessible by the public. The project is called the IBM Quantum Experience and allows regular Joes (and Janes) to manipulate individual quantum bits (or qubits) so that they can test algorithms or run... Read more...
Intel is investing $50 million and "significant engineering resources" into quantum computing. It's part of a decade-long collaborative effort with QuTech, a quantum research institute belonging to Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands and the Dutch Organization for Applied Research. Quantum... Read more...
If you're reading this site, chances are you have heard of Moore's Law. You may have even heard of the law of diminishing returns. Or perhaps you've heard that fast is never fast enough, and big is never big enough. But have you heard of quantum computing? Most people hear that phrase and simply think of some science fiction movie that they... Read more...
