(PRNewswire) Scientists at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) are working with Cambridge Quantum Computing (CQC) to accelerate research and development to support the commercialisation and optimisation of their quantum technologies, such as IronBridge™, and help with the characterisation of photonic components. This includes the metrology of emerging ultra-low loss optical connectors, for example, to meet…..
(PharmaceuticalTechnology) One industry where quantum computers are often seen to have a lot of promise is pharma. In turn, pharma, and the wider life sciences industry, has demonstrated interest in exploring ways that quantum computers could drive efficiencies and optimise processes. In a future-casting 2030 vision report, life sciences membership organisation Pistoia Alliance examined technological…..
(SpaceWatchGlobal) Cyberattacks are exponentially increasing over time, improving the security of communications is crucial for guaranteeing the protection of sensitive information for states and individuals. For states, securing communications is mandatory for a strategic geopolitical influence. The world’s first quantum-enabled satellite is the Chinese Satellite (Micius). The purpose of the mission is to investigate space-based…..
(Newswire.ca) Xanadu has announced the creation of the Canada Quantum Network (CQN), in partnership with MaRS and Creative Destruction Lab (CDL). Commencing with three nodes in Toronto, located at Xanadu, MaRS and CDL, the CQN will provide a quantum testbed for partner organizations to access and develop new kinds of applications in quantum cryptography, communications,…..
(Physics.aps) With a few quantum bits, an ideal quantum computer can process vast amounts of information in a coordinated way, making it significantly more powerful than a classical counterpart. This predicted power increase will be great for users but is bad for physicists trying to simulate on a classical computer how an ideal quantum computer…..
(TechRepublic) The quantum computing industry is nearing the end of the early adopter phase, according to one expert, and the time is now to get up to speed. Denise Ruffner, the vice president of business development at IonQ, said that quantum computing is evolving much faster than many people realize. “When I started five years…..
(WorldEconomicForum) Dario Gil, Director of IBM Research, has contributed an essay to for the The World Economic Forum’s COVID Action Platform. IQT News has summarized here and urges readers to click through and review the complete essay. To shift the paradigm of scientific discovery, we need to enable AI, hybrid cloud, and — eventually —…..
(ZDnet/TechRepublic) ZDNet & TechRepublic are offering a free PDF report exploring exploring what quantum computers will and won’t be able to do and the challenges we still face. In the download: Quantum computers are coming. Get ready for them to change everything Research: Quantum computing will impact the enterprise, despite being misunderstood What is quantum…..
(BizJournals.Boston) Zapata Computing, a Cambridge-based quantum computing startup that spun out of Harvard in 2017, has raised $38 million in Series B funding to optimize workflows, particularly for large enterprises. Supply chain problems are currently experiencing an unusual amount of time in the limelight due to Covid-19. Everything from toilet paper to an eventual vaccine…..
