  • Steven Weinberg (1933-2021): a personal view July 25, 2021
    Steven Weinberg was, perhaps, the last truly towering figure of 20th-century physics. In 1967, he wrote a 3-page paper saying in effect that as far as he could see, two of the four fundamental forces of the universe—namely, electromagnetism and the weak nuclear force—had actually been the same force until a tiny fraction of a […]
  • U.S. Department of Energy Awards $73 Million to 29 Projects for Quantum Information Science Research July 24, 2021
    The awards from the Department of Energy (DOE) will study the materials and chemical processes needed to develop the next generation of quantum smart devices and quantum computing technology. The projects will last up to 3 years and will perform fundamental research to understand, predict, and ultimately control matter and energy at the electronic, atomic, and […]
  • Quantum Algorithms Institute Receives $2.21 million CAD ($1.76M USD) from the Canadian Government to Get Started July 24, 2021
    The Quantum Algorithms Institute has been recently established on the Surrey campus of Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada to bring industry, academia, and government together to accelerate the innovation and commercialization of quantum technologies. These funds were provided by Western Economic Diversification Canada to harness British Columbia’s growing global reputation as a leader […]
  • ImpaQT Project Receives €600 Thousand ($706K USD) in Funding to Create a Quantum Computer Kit July 24, 2021
    We reported last January on the formation of the ImpaQT consortium. This is a group of Dutch companies involved with quantum technology that were putting together a kit of components that work together to form a quantum computer. The idea is that other external companies could purchase this kit from the members of the consortium […]
  • Honeywell Improves Their H1 QPU to Achieve a Quantum Volume of 1024; Google Improves Sycamore Too July 23, 2021
    In the auto industry, car makers will often make minor improvements in the cars without completely introducing a new model. Oftentimes they do this when changing to a model year, but sometimes they will do this in the middle of model year. We've just seen something similar in the quantum industry with Honeywell Quantum Solutions […]
  • Topology in biology July 23, 2021
    A phenomenon known from quantum systems could now make its way into biology: Researchers show that the notion of topological protection can also apply to biochemical networks. The model which the scientists developed makes the topological toolbox, typically used only to describe quantum systems, now also available to biology.
  • Quantum Computing Inc. Partners with IPQ Analytics for Healthcare Data Analytics and Completes Listing on NASDAQ July 23, 2021
    When people discuss how pharmaceutical companies can leverage quantum computing the usage of computational chemistry for drug discovery is always the first thing that is mentioned. But pharmaceutical companies may be in an unusual position because they can also potentially use quantum computing for two additional use cases. Part of the process of bringing a […]
  • Reducing the infinite for quantum communication July 23, 2021
    Friday, July 23, 2021 IQC researchers have developed a method to simplify the analysis of quantum communication protocols compatible with existing telecommunications infrastructure.
  • Aliro Quantum Receives Funding from the U.S. Air Force for Two Quantum Networking Projects July 22, 2021
    Aliro Quantum is a quantum networking platform company that spun out of NarangLab at Harvard University that develops simulation and control tools for quantum networks. A key focus is to deliver something they call Quantum Entanglement as a Service (EaaS) to enable the distribution of entangled quantum states between nodes. They have received contracts for research on two […]
  • New quantum research gives insights into how quantum light can be mastered July 21, 2021
    A team of scientists proposes that modulated quantum metasurfaces can control all properties of photonic qubits, a breakthrough that could impact the fields of quantum information, communications, sensing and imaging, as well as energy and momentum harvesting.
  • Slowly emerging from blog-hibervacation July 21, 2021
    Alright everyone: Victor Galitski has an impassioned rant against out-of-control quantum computing hype, which I enjoyed and enthusiastically recommend, although I wished Galitski had engaged a bit more with the strongest arguments for optimism (e.g., the recent sampling-based supremacy experiments, the extrapolations that show gate fidelities crossing the fault-tolerance threshold within the next decade). Even […]
  • Atom Computing Gains a CEO, a $15 Million Series A Funding and Membership to the 100 Qubit Club July 21, 2021
    Atom Computing, a Berkeley, California quantum hardware startup founded in 2018 has been working in stealth mode for the past three years, but has just announced a trio of disclosures that will encourage people to get to know it a lot better. To start, Rob Hays, a computing industry veteran with many years of experience […]
  • Xanadu Wins DARPA Grant to Develop a “Circuit Cutting” Quantum Compiler July 21, 2021
    The problem with many quantum programs right now is that the programs require more qubits than are available in the current hardware. To help improve upon the situation, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded Xanadu with a grant to develop a compiler that can cut up the program and run it […]
  • IQC members win big at CAP Congress July 20, 2021
    Tuesday, July 20, 2021 Over 300 student competitors participated in the 2021 Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) Virtual Congress and Best Student Presentation Competition in June, including two IQC members who won across different categories.
  • Making it through a pandemic senior year with curiosity and community July 19, 2021
    Miles Johnson ’21, a recent graduate in mathematics and EECS, employed a strong dorm network and personal interests including rock climbing and jazz to complete a rich MIT experience.
  • Google’s Sycamore Tests Reveal the Real Price of Quantum Error Correction July 18, 2021
    By Andre Saraiva, UNSW The Google Quantum AI team published a paper in Nature called “Exponential suppression of bit or phase errors with cyclic error correction”. This title is very well crafted, as it contains all the key information condensed in it. They achieve exponential suppression of errors, the holy grail of error correction (QEC). […]
  • European Commission’s Horizon Europe and Canada’s NSERC Team to Issue a Call for Proposals with an €8 Million ($11.9M CAD, $9.4M USD) Budget July 17, 2021
    The European Commission's Horizon Europe and Canada's Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) are partnering to issue a call for joint EU-CAN proposals for research on quantum technologies. Each one will provide funding of up to €4 Million (about $6M CAD or $4.7M USD) for projects related to quantum communication, quantum computing, quantum […]
