How African Researchers Are Building a Quantum Community from the Ground Up

Here’s an interesting article from Qiskit on efforts to build a quantum computing community in Africa. “By 2050, the population of Africa will double,” said Barry Dwolatzky, emeritus professor of electrical and information engineering at the University of Witwatersrand (Wits University) in Johannesburg, South Africa. Current projections indicate that most of this growing population will […]

Where Do We Go Next with Quantum Computing?

QC40 was a one-day virtual event that celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Physics of Computation Conference, which was jointly organized by MIT and IBM and held in the Endicott House on the MIT campus in 1981. We consider this conference a defining moment in the history of quantum computation. At QC40, we looked at […]

Quantum Mechanics Isn’t Weird, We’re Just Too Big

In this talk, Phillip Ball explains why quantum mechanics is not weird. Quantum computers rely on concepts such as superposition and entanglement that defy our intuitions about how things can behave. It’s often said that the world is quantum-mechanical and weird at small scales, and classical and familiar at human scales. I will challenge that […]

Compilation for Quantum Computing with Jason Cong

Jason Cong talks about Compilation for Quantum Computing: Gap Analysis and Optimal Solution Papers in this session. From the abstract: As quantum computing devices continues to scale up, we would like to access the quality of the existing quantum compilation (or design automation) tools. As the first step, we focus on the layout synthesis step. […]
