第三期「读报小组」:2分钟完成50亿年的计算量,量子计算能否成为未来新趋势?

2021年是风起云涌的一年,我们在不断地见证历史。最近世界形势多变,新冠疫情、Archegos Capital基金爆仓、以及中美关系等各大政治经济事件交汇,股市债市商品外汇各大市场高低起伏,我们更需要实时追踪市场,了解社会热点问题。 「读报小组」系列活动面向全体大众,每期会选择大家最关心的话题和全球时事,在主讲人的带领下在Zoom/Clubhouse进行线上互动讨论。每一位参与者都有机会通过这个平台获得行业中的最新资讯,交流思考感悟,结交志同道合的小伙伴。读报小组活动每3-4周展开一次,一共四期。 随着传统计算模式的增长正在趋近瓶颈,需要找到一个新的计算模式,来解决传统计算无法解决的问题。这个新的计算模式,就是量子计算。2019年10月,谷歌宣布实现量子霸权,2020年12月,中国量子计算原型机“九章”问世,2021年3月霍尼韦尔发布首台商用512量子体积量子计算机。那它究竟是如何工作的呢?目前该行业有哪些公司?在金融领域有何应用,前景如何?线上交流活动约60分钟,由嘉宾分享,现场提问及讨论组成,欢迎大家的加入! 本次活动将在Zoom进行,请点击右侧链接进行报名。活动开始前会发送Zoom链接至报名邮箱 针对这个话题,我们邀请以下四位嘉宾,他们均来自于 Finq Tech,一家专注于量子计算知识分享的组织。Yue,博士毕业于西北大学物理专业,现就职于某投行;px,博士毕业于马里兰大学物理专业,现就职于某科技公司;Leon,博士现就读于马里兰大学物理专业;Chandler,曾任职于硅谷某VC,参与多家量子计算初创公司投资。 活动时间: 美东时间7月17日晚上9:00-10:00pm 活动形式: 本次活动将在Zoom进行,请点击右侧链接进行报名。活动开始前会发送Zoom房间链接至报名邮箱 报名链接: https://www.qishicpc.com/activities/profile/289/ 报名截止日期:7月16日

IonQ Unveils World’s Most Powerful Quantum Computer

IonQ, the leader in quantum computing, today unveiled its next generation quantum computer system. The new hardware features 32 perfect qubits with low gate errors, giving it an expected quantum volume greater than 4,000,000. The new system consists of perfect atomic clock qubits and random access all-to-all gate operations for efficient software compilation of applications.Continue reading “IonQ Unveils World’s Most Powerful Quantum Computer”

NSF establishes 3 new institutes to address critical challenges in quantum information science

Quantum phenomena have puzzled and delighted scientists for over a century, revealing unique, counter-intuitive characteristics of matter like superposition and entanglement. For four decades, the U.S. National Science Foundation has worked to enable breakthroughs in quantum information science and engineering that harness what researchers have learned about quantum phenomena to develop technologies like quantum computers,Continue reading “NSF establishes 3 new institutes to address critical challenges in quantum information science”

Quantum Volume: A Yardstick To Measure The Performance Of Quantum Computers

Let’s say you’re interested in buying a car, so you visit a new car dealership. Imagine your disappointment if you learned that the only information the salesperson can give you is the number of seats in each vehicle. How crazy would that be? Of course, to make sure a car fits your requirements, you need a lotContinue reading “Quantum Volume: A Yardstick To Measure The Performance Of Quantum Computers”

Heat energy leaps through empty space, thanks to quantum weirdness

In a surprising new study, University of California, Berkeley, researchers show that heat energy can travel through a complete vacuum thanks to invisible quantum fluctuations. To conduct the challenging experiment, the team engineered extremely thin silicon nitride membranes, which they fabricated in a dust-free clean room, and then used optic and electronic components to preciselyContinue reading “Heat energy leaps through empty space, thanks to quantum weirdness”

John Martinis, Former Head of Google’s Quantum Initiative and Tony Uttley, President of Honeywell Quantum Solutions discuss where the industry is heading

Quantum computing pioneer John Martinis may have moved on from Google’s quantum computing project, but he hasn’t moved on from his belief that quantum computers will take on real world challenges. The University of California Santa Barbara physicist told the participants of the BCI Summit, a virtual conference on the latest advances in quantum computing held yesterday, that, while challenges remain,Continue reading “John Martinis, Former Head of Google’s Quantum Initiative and Tony Uttley, President of Honeywell Quantum Solutions discuss where the industry is heading”

Announcing TensorFlow Quantum: An Open Source Library for Quantum Machine Learning

“Nature isn’t classical, damnit, so if you want to make a simulation of nature, you’d better make it quantum mechanical.” — Physicist Richard Feynman Machine learning (ML), while it doesn’t exactly simulate systems in nature, has the ability to learn a model of a system and predict the system’s behavior. Over the past few years, classical MLContinue reading “Announcing TensorFlow Quantum: An Open Source Library for Quantum Machine Learning”
