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’...

Delivering value right now with quantum computing

Visualization of industry 4.0
Some refer to quantum computers as a big technological bubble in which people will soon lose interest, others believe that it might take decades to see some significant breakthrough in this field. For other companies and experts, quantum computing is already here. Tina Sebastian, CEO of Quacoon and a seasoned expert in both computer science and manufacturing, is convinced that quantum technology...

Bringing molecular simulations a step further

Visualization of molecular simulations
What can we do with the near-term quantum devices that we currently have? What are the benefits that they bring, and what is their future potential? Is it possible for the actual NISQ (Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum) devices to further advance the fields of material and drug discovery through complex molecular simulations and modelling that are difficult to generate on a classical computer? These...

Quantum computers are coming. What about quantum software?

software-code
With the rise of quantum hardware providers that make some of their devices available to the public through cloud services, the number of companies working to develop quantum software – tools, algorithms, programming languages and applications – for this innovative technology has increased substantially. So has the complexity of the field and the differences in perspectives and approaches. Along...
