On March 22, 2022, Sandbox AQ announced its formal launch as a separate company from Alphabet (fka Google). I consider this to be seminal event in the Quantum Computing (QC) industry so wanted to provide additional color to emphasize the magnitude of the announcement.
Quantum Computers will transform the way we use computers by massively accelerating certain computations and, more importantly, by enabling a wholly new form of computing.
While Quantum Computing is in the early innings, there are promising developments in Quantum Machine Learning (QML). As the amount of stored data and images continues to explode, along with the increasing adoption of voice recognition tools (i.e., Alexa, Siri, etc.) utilization of QML will be vital to enabling efficient use of these evolving tools. I expect we’ll see many more collaborations and tools in the QML space in the next few years.
he power and potential of Quantum Computing, you may be wondering how to invest in this emerging opportunity.
Quantum advantage is closer than you think
People are using actual working Quantum Computers every day. Each of Amazon and Microsoft offer cloud access to several QC hardware systems, while players like Google, IBM, IonQ, Rigetti, Honeywell and others offer direct access to their systems via direct web-based interfaces.
I’ve curated this list to provide a broad set of definitions that should help frame the Quantum Computing (QC) potential, and for ease of reference as you come across terms where a definitional reminder would be helpful.
I’ve covered some key aspects of Quantum Computing in prior posts and thought it would be helpful to synthesize and consolidate some of the fundamental properties of Quantum Computing to provide a bigger picture of the promise and potential of the industry
Computing (CQC) reached an agreement to be acquired by Honeywell for $300m, representing a $545m post-money valuation. Honeywell merged CQC with its Honeywell Quantum Solutions (HQS) division and in November of 2021, spun out the combined businesses into a new stand-alone company called “Quantinuum”.
compute in seconds what would take the largest and most advanced supercomputers thousands of years, thereby achieving a milestone referred to as “quantum supremacy” for the first time.
