There are several significant challenges facing QC makers today, and “noise” is one of the most difficult to overcome.
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.
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.
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 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
A high-level overview of various types of qubits. The good news is that many entities have created, manipulated and measured qubits and often there has been success in controlling them into superpositions and in entangling a limited but growing number of qubits at a time. For now, this is the NISQ landscape.
In prior posts I emphasized the excitement and potential of Quantum Computing, without any reference to the underlying quantum mechanics, but would like to introduce you to some unique quantum properties in this post. While understanding the nature of Quantum Computing is complex and contains many new concepts, a basic understanding of “Superposition” and “Entanglement”Continue reading “Quantum Superposition and Entanglement”
