Quantum Technology News – Issue #9

The biggest news of the week is the long-anticipated Google quantum computing announcement. The announcement states that the D-Wave machine is more than 10^8 times faster than simulated annealing running on a single core. Independent analyses by Dr. Scott Aaronson show that while the results are showing that D-Wave is becoming more mature and probably has quantum effects, the technology suffers the drawbacks of just being built on old quantum computing ...

Quantum Technology News – Issue #5

Intel joined the race for quantum computing in a big way, by investing $50 million into a collaboration with Delft University. A Yale University group published a very readable paper yesterday with a multilayer scheme for quantum circuits and proposes a top to bottom structure, as well as hits on the points of fabrication and error correction to make a scalable and fault-tolerant quantum computer. Other news includes Google and NASA Ames ...
