Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) just announced the acquisition of supercomputer maker Cray Inc. (NASDAQ: CRAY) for $35.00 per share. What does all of this mean for quantum computing? In the short term, Inside Quantum Technology believes the answer is “very little.” In the longer term, say five years, it’s a “definite maybe.” We note that: • Before the breakup

There are two camps in quantum cryptography. The first is the hardware-based approach; Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) which uses fundamental quantum mechanics principles to facilitate secure communication without interception. The second is a software approach Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC). PQC is based upon new algorithms that, unlike RSA, are not based upon factoring a large semi-prime numbers. In the future, large

At Inside Quantum Technology’s Boston Summit, perhaps the liveliest panel was on the topic of the quantum threat to Blockchain. Monica Quaintance, a New York based data engineer for Kadena, which sells secure blockchain solutions for business data, and Kiran Bhagotra, a cybersecurity entrepreneur who founded ProtectBox found themselves squarely at odds over what degree of risk emerging quantum technology

At a conference hosted by Inside Quantum Technology in Boston this month, Dr. Mark Jackson of Cambridge Quantum Computing announced that 99% of all online encryption will be vulnerable to quantum enabled hacking. Therefore, he said, post-quantum cryptography (PQC) is very important for civic, industrial and commercial Internet of Things (IoT) applications and for 5G networks. Both Kiran Bhaghota of

The potential for quantum computers is to do everything that a classical one can do and more. However, that doesn’t mean that they will replace them completely. The manipulation of qubits carries with it complex technological problems. Inside Quantum Technology believes that both quantum and classical devices can work together, complementing each other. Quantum computers allow them to potentially solve

In the late 1990’s there were many fears that our computing infrastructure would break down at the turn of the Century and that mass chaos would ensue for many systems that depended upon computer control and management.  The cause of this concern was a programming bug dubbed Y2K.  Today, much is made of Y2Q, the supposed point in time when

How Useful Are Quantum Computers? Quantum computers today are in a state similar to that of classical computers in their infancy. The first devices took up whole rooms and could perform only simple calculations.  People were also skeptical about these machines living up to the promised potential. No one seriously predicted that we would end up with devices with a

Quantum Annealers: A First Step on the Road to Quantum Computer Commercialization Annealing, the process of improving the quality of metals and alloys by heating them and slowly cooling again, is possibly one of the oldest optimization techniques known to mankind. With the world of big data growing each day, algorithms inspired by this ancient technique have emerged. Simulated annealing
