IBM Unveils Expanded Quantum Roadmap; Talks Up ‘Quantum-Centric Supercomputer’

May 10, 2022

IBM today issued an extensive and detailed expansion of its Quantum Roadmap that calls for developing a new 1386-qubit processor – Kookaburra – built from modularly scaled chips, and delivering a 4,158-qubit POC system built using three connected Kookaburra processors by 2025. Kookaburra (Australian Kingfisher) is a new architecture... Read more…

PsiQuantum’s Path to 1 Million Qubits

April 21, 2022

PsiQuantum, founded in 2016 by four researchers with roots at Bristol University, Stanford University, and York University, is one of a few quantum computing startups that’s kept a moderately low PR profile. (That’s if you disregard the roughly $700 million in funding it has attracted.) The main reason is PsiQuantum has eschewed the clamorous public chase for... Read more…

Today is World Quantum Day – What’s That?

April 14, 2022

Thanks to Planck’s constant — 4.14 x 10-15 eV seconds, rounded up (or 6.63 x 10-34 Joule seconds, if you prefer) — April 14 has been designated World Quantum Day by a loosely affiliated group of scientists and organizations around the world, including the U.S. (see website). The broad idea is to spotlight quantum information science’s rapid growth and, in particular... Read more…

Merzbacher Q&A: Deep Dive into the Quantum Economic Development Consortium

March 29, 2022

Building the quantum information sciences (QIS) industry — or more accurately, helping it build itself — is Celia Merzbacher’s job as executive director of the Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C). The QED-C was brought into being with the 2018 National Quantum Initiative Act and is broadly overseen by NIST and the National Quantum... Read more…

APS March Meeting: Google, Intel and Others Highlight Quantum Progress Points

MIT Introduces Twist – A New Quantum Programming Language to Help Curb Errors

February 24, 2022

Programming quantum computers presents a host of problems. Consider the role of entanglement, the idea that qubits can be inextricably linked; it’s the basis Read more…

Quantum Bits: Rigetti Opens Access to Aspen-M; JPMorgan’s New QKD; Classiq Nets $33M, More

February 17, 2022

It’s been a busy week in quantum computing. Rigetti began providing much wider access to its 80-qubit system (Aspen-M), announced a collaboration with Nasdaq to develop FS apps, and struck a deal with Arm-based chip supplier Ampere to develop hybrid classical-quantum platforms. Elsewhere, JPMorgan Chase, Toshiba, and Ciena reported successfully... Read more…

Whitepaper

5 HPC Optimization Techniques

For many organizations, decisions about whether to run HPC workloads in the cloud or in on-premises datacenters are less all-encompassing and more about leveraging both infrastructures strategically to optimize HPC workloads across hybrid environments. From multi-clouds to on-premises, dark, edge, and point of presence (PoP) datacenters, data comes from all directions and in all forms while HPC workloads run in every dimension of modern datacenter schemes. HPC has become multi-dimensional and must be managed as such.

This white paper explores several of these new strategies and tools for optimizing HPC workloads across all dimensions to achieve breakthrough results in Microsoft Azure.
