Google's Quantum Tech Milestone Excites Scientists and Spurs Rivals
Google's quantum supremacy demonstration correctly performed a computational task in just 200 seconds on their "Sycamore" quantum computing device, whereas the same test computation would take days or even years on the world’s most powerful supercomputer. In this article, scientists share their viewpoints on this unique physics experiment.
Satellite-Based Continuous-Variable Quantum Communications: State-of-the-Art and a Predictive Outlook
In this paper, the authors examine space-based quantum communication to the continuous-variable regime. Closely related to classical wireless communications, this regime offers the potential for increased communication performance and represents the next major step forward for quantum communications and the development of the global quantum Internet.
Tech Pioneers Weigh in on the Vast Potential of Quantum Computing
At Brainstorm Tech 2019 in Aspen, Colorado, Krysta Svore, general manager of quantum software at Microsoft, and Andrew Fursman, co-founder & CEO of 1QBit, discuss how workable quantum computing could, in theory, help solve some of humanity’s most pressing problems. Krysta Svore is a keynote speaker at the 2019 IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing (ICRC).
