The early wave of NISQ (Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum) computers featuring diverse qubit technologies is already edging towards commercialization. Prototype applications in financial services, materials science, logistics, and drug discovery are in various stages of development. The needed software ecosystem has mushroomed with commercial, government, and academic players churning out tools, working on standards, and developing new algorithms. Vital quantum memory and networking technologies are also advancing in lockstep, and DOE has even issued a Blueprint for a Quantum Internet.
Attaining these goals requires resources, and the quantum computing community writ large is swelling with familiar big names such as IBM, Microsoft, and Google, along with lesser-known pioneers such as Rigetti, IonQ, and D-Wave, and literally hundreds of start-ups. No doubt some of the latter will bring transformative technology into the race for practical quantum computing and become the big names of tomorrow.
Inasmuch as Quantum Computing could very well be the next frontier of HPC, HPCwire has published over 90 articles and news items on Quantum in the first quarter of 2022 alone!
HPCwire’s monthly quantum computing newsletter will cover the broad range of activities, companies, and people seeking to bring quantum computing to practical reality. We’ll examine the many hardware platforms and qubit technologies vying for dominance. We’ll look at ‘quantum’ companies and their research and commercialization strategies. We’ll look at collaboration efforts such as the Quantum Economic Development Council’s diverse effort. We’ll look at the U.S. National Quantum Initiative and how that plays out in practice. We’ll look at DOE’s big bet on quantum computing, including testbeds for evaluating everything from quantum computing hardware and control circuits to developing single-photon sources and protocols for building a Quantum Internet.
Broadly, we’ll cover all things quantum computing-related with a focus on enabling technology, practical use cases and applications, and the quantum community itself.
