Nearly every day we see headlines about players in the Quantum Computing industry announcing new collaborations and partnerships. On a technical level this seems logical given the unique requirements of the various components such as the physical qubits, cryogenics, lasers, microwaves, controllers, compilers, error correction, various software layers, etc. Collaborations would seem inevitable as the industry attempts to power forward as rapidly as possible.

Quantum Computing Jobs
When I get invited to college graduation parties, I will be whispering “Quantum Computing” into the ears of the recent graduates. It’s also great advice to those seeking a change in their current career and while technical aptitude and experience create the best fit for most of the current QC industry positions, there is a growing number of non-technical jobs in QC as well. There are many great resources available to you as you consider a QC career and I hope you take advantage of them and consider joining this exciting and evolving field.
What is Sandbox AQ?
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.
The Quantum Computing Elevator Pitch
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.
The Case for an Annual “Quantum Games” Competition
Given that some benchmarks favor optimization strategies, some favor simulation, some focus on contrived theoretical tasks and others try to reflect real-world applications, some are great at 2-qubit gates but not at larger entanglements, etc., it unfortunately does not look like a universally accepted standard is going to be agreed upon in the near-future. So instead, what if there were an annual contest like a global QC decathlon?
At the Intersection of Quantum Computing, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
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.

Cloud Based Quantum Computer Access – Available Today
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.
Ten Fundamental Facts About Quantum Computing
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
