3 Benefits of Hiring an ‘Entrepreneur-in-Residence’

3 Benefits of Hiring an ‘Entrepreneur-in-Residence’

(I was asked how an “Entrepreneur-in-Residence” is defined – and struggling to find a good catch-all explanation, I looked it up)   Entrepreneur.com: 3 Benefits of Hiring an ‘Entrepreneur-in-Residence’ For most companies, having a CEO who’s forced to constantly divide his or her attention is a surefire way to kill the business. Companies need to focus…

Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum (NISQ) Technology

Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum (NISQ) Technology

In a keynote speech given in late 2017, the physicist John Preskill coined the term Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum (NISQ) technology for the kinds of quantum computers that will be available in the next few years. Here, ‘noisy’ refers to the fact that the devices will be disturbed by what is happening in their environment.…

D-Wave Annealing Quantum Computers Tackle Big Data With A ML Quantum Boltzmann Machine (Artificial Neural Network)

D-Wave Annealing Quantum Computers Tackle Big Data With A ML Quantum Boltzmann Machine (Artificial Neural Network)

Every two seconds, sensors measuring the United States’ electrical grid collect 3 petabytes of data – the equivalent of 3 million gigabytes. Data analysis on that scale is a challenge when crucial information is stored in an inaccessible database. But researchers at Purdue University are working on a solution, combining quantum algorithms with classical computing…

‘The best piece of legislation’ in DC is about Quantum Computing

Congressman Will Hurd warned that Russia and China are sucking up encrypted communications in the hopes of retroactively reading them after they achieve encryption-breaking quantum computing capabilities. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)   A Texas congressman warned of the growing threat quantum computing presents if competitors such as Russia or China achieve the technological feat first.…

“SDI” #2? Quantum Entanglement: Sorting Hype from Reality in China’s Quantum-Tech Quest

“SDI” #2? Quantum Entanglement: Sorting Hype from Reality in China’s Quantum-Tech Quest

Could the “spooky action” of quantum technologies enable China to develop disruptive military capabilities – and perhaps achieve a strategic advantage? In its quest to offset U.S. techno-strategic advantages, China aspires to emerge as a “science and technology superpower” (科技强国) and leap ahead in quantum science through a new national megaproject. From the launch of the world’s…

China breaks quantum entanglement record at 18 qubits

China breaks quantum entanglement record at 18 qubits

Physicists in China just broke a new record by achieving quantum entanglement with 18 qubits, surpassing the previous record of 10. This significant breakthrough puts us one big step closer to realizing large-scale quantum computing. It’s hard to find a stranger, more exotic phenomenon than quantum entanglement — the idea that two entangled particles, or…

US Quantum Computing is “sub-par” Says NSA Deputy Director George Barnes

US Quantum Computing is “sub-par” Says NSA Deputy Director George Barnes

This post is also available in: עברית (Hebrew) Experts say that when quantum computers are fully operational, they will upend the use of password-protected systems, artificial intelligence and other areas of information technology. “Whoever achieves quantum first, everything they are doing and have been doing is irrelevant,” Rep. Will Hurd, R-Texas, said recently. However, the…

China Shatters “Spooky Action at a Distance” Record, Preps for Quantum Internet

China Shatters “Spooky Action at a Distance” Record, Preps for Quantum Internet

Results from the Micius satellite test quantum entanglement, pointing the way toward hack-proof global communications — and a new space race In a landmark study, a team of Chinese scientists using an experimental satellite has tested quantum entanglement over unprecedented distances, beaming entangled pairs of photons to three ground stations across China — each separated…

Fujitsu’s CMOS Digital Annealer Produces Quantum Computer Speeds

Fujitsu’s CMOS Digital Annealer Produces Quantum Computer Speeds

While quantum computer makers struggle to bring down costs, the Japanese computer giant has created a dedicated silicon chip to match quantum computer performance. Fujitsu has designed a new computer architecture running on silicon that the company claims rivals that of quantum computers in utility. Dubbed the Digital Annealer, Fujitsu has begun offering cloud services…

Cloud-based quantum computer takes on deuteron and wins

Cloud-based quantum computer takes on deuteron and wins

Optimized algorithms plus cloud-based quantum computers actually work. First it was the electron behavior in a hydrogen molecule, then beryllium dihydride joined the club. Now, quantum computers have been used to calculate some of the properties of an atomic nucleus: the deuterium nucleus to be precise. What we are witnessing are two concurrent and useful processes.…

Toshiba Examines Quantum Encryption

Toshiba Examines Quantum Encryption

This post is also available in: עברית (Hebrew) There are plenty of ways that companies and scientists are attempting to integrate the weird effects of quantum mechanics into everyday technology. One potential use is a whole new way of encrypting data, such that the encryption key can’t be broken by any conventional method. Toshiba will…

USA Intelligence official: USA still leads in quantum computing … for now

USA Intelligence official: USA still leads in quantum computing … for now

Recent comments from the intelligence community indicate quantum computing could be one of the most important technology investments being made today, but the field has many worried about what might happen if others achieve it first. Quantum encryption, enabled by quantum computing, could have profound national security implications such as making adversary messages unreadable and…
