  • U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) Weighs In on Post Quantum Cryptography (PQC) July 29, 2020
    In the aftermath of the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) selection of candidates for Round 3 of the PQC selection process, the NSA has posted comments on what types algorithms they are favoring for national security and commercial use cases. The NSA has reviewed the security of many of the algorithms and […]
  • Scientists make quantum technology smaller July 29, 2020
    A way of shrinking the devices used in quantum sensing systems has now been developed.
  • Healing an Achilles' heel of quantum entanglement July 29, 2020
    Researchers have solved a 20-year-old problem in quantum information theory on how to calculate entanglement cost -- a way to measure entanglement -- in a manner that's efficiently computable, useful, and broadly applicable in several quantum research areas.
  • Simulating quantum 'time travel' disproves butterfly effect in quantum realm July 29, 2020
    Using a quantum computer to simulate time travel, researchers have demonstrated that, in the quantum realm, there is no 'butterfly effect.' In the research, information--qubits, or quantum bits--'time travel' into the simulated past.
  • “Giant atoms” enable quantum processing and communication in one July 29, 2020
    Researchers devise an on-off system that allows high-fidelity operations and interconnection between processors.
  • Solving materials problems with a quantum computer July 28, 2020
    Scientists have developed a method paving the way to using quantum computers to simulate realistic molecules and complex materials. They tested the method on a quantum simulator and IBM quantum computer.
  • Innovare Advancement Center to Provide Over $1 Million in Grants for University Quantum Research During a Pitch Competition September 1-3, 2020 July 25, 2020
    Innovare Advancement Center, a new technology accelerator in Rome, New York that was recently created in partnership by the Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate (AFRL/RI), Griffiss Institute (GI), Oneida County (OC), and State University of New York (SUNY), announced it will host a “$1,000,000 International Quantum U Tech Accelerator” event on September 1-3, 2020.  This event will provide one year grants for […]
  • Commentary: America must invest in its ability to innovate July 24, 2020
    Presidents of MIT and Indiana University urge America’s leaders to support bipartisan innovation bill.
  • Department of Energy (DOE) Unveils Blueprint for a U.S. Quantum Internet July 23, 2020
    In an event held at the University of Chicago, the U.S. DOE unveiled a blueprint for creating a quantum internet in the United States.  The network would start with a network being constructed in the Chicago area between the University of Chicago, the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) in Batavia, Illinois, and the Argonne National […]
  • The Busy Beaver Frontier July 23, 2020
    A life that was all covid, cancellations, and Trump, all desperate rearguard defense of the beleaguered ideals of the Enlightenment, would hardly be worth living. So it was an exquisite delight, these past two weeks, to forget current events and write an 18-page survey article about the Busy Beaver function: the staggeringly quickly-growing function that […]
  • NIST Selects 7 Finalists and 8 Alternates for Round 3 of the PQC Standardization Program July 22, 2020
    As part of the ongoing program to develop a quantum resistant Post Quantum Cryptography (PQC) standard which started in 2017 with 69 candidate algorithms, NIST has announced they have finished their analysis for Round 2 which began in January 2019 with 26 algorithms and are now proceeding to Round 3 with seven finalists and eight […]
  • NSF Establishes Three Quantum Leap Challenge Institutes with $75 Million in Funding July 22, 2020
    We reported last year on the U.S. National Science Foundation’s (NSF) “Big Ideas” concept to fund bold long-term research and process ideas, the NSF is setting up the Quantum Leap Challenge Institutes (QLCI) to perform research in the focus areas of quantum technology. Today, the concept has turned into reality with NSF’s announcement in partnership […]
  • QC Ware Releases New Version of their Forge Software Which Includes New QML Data Loading Algorithms July 21, 2020
    One of the challenges of implementing a Quantum Machine Learning algorithm (QML) in a quantum computer is initially loading the classical data into the qubits.  Although a certain number of qubits can theoretically hold more information using superposition and entanglement than the same number of bits in a classical computer, loading the data so that […]
  • Is this blog obsolete? July 21, 2020
    Longtime friend-of-the-blog Michael Nielsen, formerly a quantum computing theorist and now an independent thinker about science and AI and learning, posted the following exchange with the astounding GPT-3 text generator / chatbot: Q: Is it possible to use quantum computers to solve NP-complete problems in polynomial time?A: It is not possible to use quantum computers […]
  • Quantum exciton found in magnetic van der Waals material NiPS3 July 20, 2020
    Things can always be done faster, but can anything beat light? Computing with light instead of electricity is seen as a breakthrough to boost the computer speeds. Transistors, the building blocks of data circuits, require to switch electrical signals into light in order to transmit the information via a fiber-optic cable. Optical computing could potentially […]
  • Atomtronic device could probe boundary between quantum, everyday worlds July 17, 2020
    A new device that relies on flowing clouds of ultracold atoms promises potential tests of the intersection between the weirdness of the quantum world and the familiarity of the macroscopic world we experience every day.
