Towards the First Demonstration of Quantum Advantage in Material Discovery

New materials can bring tremendous benefits across all industries, from agriculture and construction to telecommunication, aerospace, medicine, the food industry, and the energy sector. However, most of the methods currently used for material discovery are based on trial-and-error procedures that require a significant amount of resources and take plenty of time to develop and implement. A hybrid approach using both classical and quantum devices along with machine learning and artificial intelligence tools – has the potential to bring material discovery to a new level of efficiency and...

Flying Qubits and Quantum Transistors – One More Piece in the Quantum Computing Puzzle

Developing components and systems for quantum information processing is a major task with a significant impact on the future of quantum computing. We are at a point where avid research is taking place in multiple directions; every little progress has the potential to shape the future of this industry. Within CEA Grenoble, Dr. Eleni Chatzikyriakou is working on simulating the operation of transistors, thus improving their functionality and performance.  Along with efforts focused on building qubits and increasing their coherence time (the time spent by qubits in superposition), scientists...

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 themselves under the influence of various electromagnetic forces. Repetitive measurements...

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 with a protocol for measuring it on current devices[1]. Quantum volume – the...

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 usually include: magnetic fields, variation in temperature, impurities in the...

Visualization of industry 4.0

Delivering value right now with quantum computing

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 can already bring significant value to Industry 4.0 and supply chain management. Where do all these different views come from? First of all, it depends on the technology and the quantum computing...

Visualization of molecular simulations

Bringing molecular simulations a step further

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 are some of the main topics on quantum scientists’ research agenda and a strong point of interest for Sayonee Ray, a post-doctoral fellow at the Center for Quantum Information and Control...

Quantum computers are coming. What about quantum software?

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 with developing functional qubits and the hardware technology to support quantum computing, an entire plethora of software components needs to be developed as well. Denise Ruffner, Chief...
