There are several significant challenges facing QC makers today, and “noise” is one of the most difficult to overcome.
The Quantum industry is facing a challenging investment climate which will lead to some near-term pain. Read why here.
This latest post approaches Quantum Computing from a philosophical perspective. It’s an aspect of this field that originally gripped my attention and which underlies much of why quantum mechanics conjures such non-intuitive conclusions.
Given my overall assessment of ColdQuanta including its strong IP, broad and complementary offering, and prestigious existing customers (and revenues), I am assigning the highest rating to ColdQuanta at this time, with an Alpha of 0.95 which equates to an “Exceptional performance expected.”
Ultimately, Quantum Computers will only be as valuable and impactful as the programs written for them, so seeing creativity and outside-the-box approaches to challenges with these early, noisy, faulty machines will be quite revealing. The Classiq Coding Competition should bring out this programming creativity.
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.
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
