(Unite.AI) Analysts and members of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) expect that the presidency of Joe Biden will continue to make research and development for AI and quantum computing technologies a priority, although aspects of Biden’s approach to regulation and spending are expected to differ. In February the Trump administration announced a plan…..
(Medium) Ryan F. Mandelbaum, Senior Technical Writer, Qiskit writes that “The progress already made on today’s quantum computers demonstrates that this kind of world-bettering science requires a global community of researchers cooperating on a shared vision of the future.” International collaboration has long been at the heart of the quantum computing field. It’s safe to…..
(FierceElectronics) China will figure large in how President-elect Joe Biden’s policy agenda impacts innovation and technology, including the electronics industry. On the technology front, President-elect Biden will be inheriting a complex scenario. There is the recognition by many U.S. companies that the Chinese government supports a strong research program in quantum computing, which could eventually…..
(Nature) A technology for building quantum computers that has long been sidelined by major companies is gaining momentum. The spotlight has mostly been on one approach — the tiny superconducting loops embraced by technology giants such as IBM and Intel. Superconductors enabled Google last year to claim it had achieved ‘quantum advantage’ with a quantum…..
(QuTech.nl.academy) QuTech is offering scholarships for excellent, international applicants interested in a Master’s track in quantum. Per year, QuTech offers 6 full scholarships, two for each division: Qubit Research, Quantum Internet and Quantum Computing. When a student completes the MSc programme and receives a 9 (90%) or higher for the MSc thesis project, the student…..
(Microsoft.Cloudblog.Quantum) The Danish Society for the Dissemination of Natural Science has announced that Charlie Marcus, the Director of the Microsoft Quantum Lab in Copenhagen and Villum Kann Rasmussen Professor at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen, is being awarded the H.C. Ørsted Gold Medal. Charlie is the first non-Dane to receive the…..
(SOMagNews) Researchers from MIT and the giants Google and IBM were able to transform twisted graphene into functional devices, including superconducting switches like those used in various quantum machines. The achievement continues studies in 2018, the year in which scientists piled 2 microscopic letters of carbon sheets with an atom of thickness and twisted them…..
(EurekaAlert) The quantum sensing abilities of nanodiamonds can be used to improve the sensitivity of paper-based diagnostic tests, potentially allowing for earlier detection of diseases such as HIV, according to a study led by UCL researchers in the i-sense McKendry group. The new research, published in Nature, found that low-cost nanodiamonds could be used to…..
(MirageNews) The ultimate platform to connect quantum computers to society is the internet. Online access to quantum technology allows society and industry to come to grips with the counterintuitive aspects of quantum mechanics and to explore the potential of quantum algorithms. In the Netherlands, QuTech, a joint initiative by Delft University of Technology (TU Delft)…..
(Optics.org) The UK Space Agency is funding a new project to further develop laser-based quantum sensors for use on board satellites. Announced by the Centre for Earth Observation Instrumentation (CEOI), the Cold Atom Space PAyload (CASPA) Accelerometer effort represents a follow-up to the initial CASPA CubeSat project, which demonstrated how to create and trap a…..
