IQT Europe is fast approaching October 29-30 in the The Hague in the Louwman Museum. Your IQT Newsletter has launched a daily series profiling speakers and their companies to acquaint the quantum tech ecosystem with the significance of the upcoming event. Today, we feature Dr. Christopher Papile , CEO of BraneCell who will speak on …..
(TechnologyReview) Always excellent, Martin Giles has provided “. ..an antidote to the hype surrounding quantum supremacy” in his latest quantum technology article. Google has reportedly demonstrated for the first time that a quantum computer is capable of performing a task beyond the reach of even the most powerful conventional supercomputer in any practical time frame—a…..
(InsideHPC) D-Wave Systems has announced that Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has signed a contract to upgrade to the company’s next-generation “Advantage” quantum system. Available in 2020, the Advantage platform will deliver significant performance gains and greater solution precision. LANL is a multidisciplinary research institution engaged in strategic science to address national security priorities. To-date,…..
(NewElectronics.co.uk) The Chinese satellite Mincus has steadily been extending the reach of an encryption technology that is practically unbreakable. The Quantum Experiments at Space Scale (QUESS) satellite demonstrated it was possible for photons sharing quantum entanglement to convey data over 750km. By June this year, that distance had increased to 1200km. Before the QUESS experiments…..
(EurekaAlert) A team of resesarchers from Brown University and Dartmouth College have been awarded a $4 million grant from the National Science Foundation to better understand the materials and the exotic quantum states that will make quantum technologies possible. “We’re trying to understand these quantum materials and complex quantum states on a fundamental level that…..
(RedAnalysis.org) A world with quantum computers is about to be born. All actors need to take this new future into account, in all its dimensions. This is even truer for those concerned with international security at large. This article is the first of a new series that focuses on understanding the coming quantum-AI world. How…..
(WallStreetPit) A team of scientist at the Department of Experimental Physics at the University of Innsbruck and at the Austrian Academy of Sciences have managed to achieve a record-breaking transfer of quantum entanglement between matter and light, bringing the possibility of a super-secure quantum internet closer to reality.= For the first time, light entangled with…..
(OpenGovAsia) Researchers from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and scientists from across the world have made a discovery on the “Quantum Hall Effect” (QHE). Electricity found in a quantum Hall system can be conducted without energy being lost. This means that electronics and technology using quantum mechanics in the future will be…..
(TechRepublic) On September 20, the Financial Times reported that a Google research paper temporarily posted online said Google’s quantum computer has reached “quantum supremacy,” a threshold at which quantum computers are theorized to be capable of solving problems, which traditional computers would not (practically) be able to solve. The specific computation in question is at…..
(Fortune) Since the 1950s, IBM has made its monolithic mainframe computers in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. On Wednesday, deepened its presence in the Hudson River Valley city by opening a facility dedicated the quantum computer. IBM’s new special-purpose data center, called the IBM quantum computation center, is stocked with five quantum computers, with plans to add four…..
