A Paradigm Shift. The Role of Quantum Mechanics in Arbitration, Politics, and Defense

For centuries, science has been based on Newtonian laws and the principles of classical physics. In the last decades, this ontology started to be questioned, leading to the rise of quantum mechanics. From theoretical simulations and mathematical experiments, these quantum principles soon extended to computer science. They are working their way into different industries, from manufacturing and chemistry to law, politics, and defense. Classical mechanics picture the world as a collection of particles that find...

Honeywell: the time to build a strategy leveraging quantum computing is now

With a quantum volume of 128, Honeywell is one of the major players in the field of quantum computing, aiming to bring this technology to its full potential and harness its advantage in solving problems that span multiple industries. Along with rampant developments in the field of quantum technology, the need for benchmarking and congruent measurements across this field has become imperative. Simply measuring the number of qubits is not relevant for the performance and efficacy of a quantum computer, together...

The biggest obstacle to quantum computing is… noise?

We spoke to Jessica Pointing, a world-renowned quantum computing expert and Harvard graduate currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Quantum Computing from Stanford University. Among the interesting insight she shared with us, she explained how various types of noise can affect quantum computations and what can be done to eliminate or avoid the resulting errors. In the quantum context, ‘noise’ is not an undesirable sound. It is interference that can be caused by internal and external factors. External factors...
