In the past two months, we set on a journey to uncover all there is to know about Quantum computing. Starting from the market to industries, exploring how companies from different industries are using quantum computing to their benefit. These companies are either collaborating in joint research or using a quantum computer of companies that are doing core research in the technology.
IBM Quantum is a first-of-its-kind industrial initiative to create universal quantum computers for business, engineering, and science. This initiative encompasses improving the complete quantum computing technology stack as well as investigating applications to make quantum more widely usable and accessible.
Furthermore, its Quantum Solutions Lab engagements are joint research programs that enable one to engage with renowned specialists in quantum computing, machine learning, and high-performance computing.
The two companies would collaborate on the development of hybrid quantum/classical technologies and services that combine the best features of classical computers and quantum computers, as well as the development of new hybrid applications that use those services and joint marketing and sales go-to-market activities to promote quantum computing.
August 16, 2022Multiverse and IKERLAN Partner to Research Quantum Computer VisionTwo companies based in Spain, Multiverse Computing and IKERLAN have partnered and released a paper describing how quantum computer vision can be used to detect defects in manufactured car pieces in a manufacturing production line. This would represent one of the first implementation of quantum computer vision for a relevant problem in a manufacturing production line. Although this research only created proofs-of concepts, it does point the way for utilization of quantum computing in manufacturing and quality control. Click here for more.
Adrián Lozano-Duran joined the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT as an Assistant Professor in January. He received his PhD in aerospace engineering from the Technical University of Madrid in 2015 on the use of graph theory to unravel the dynamics of chaotic patterns in fluids. From 2016 to 2020, he was a postdoc at Stanford University working on high-fidelity simulations of external aerodynamic applications. His research is focused on solving outstanding problems in physics and modeling of turbulent flows using transformative tools and creativity. His work includes turbulence theory and modeling by artificial intelligence, information theory, and quantum computing, with applications ranging from unmanned aerial vehicles and commercial airliners to hypersonic vehicles. He is the recipient of the Milton van Dyke Award from the American Physical Society (2017), the Center for Turbulence Research Fellowship from Stanford University (2016), and the Da Vinci Award for the top five European dissertations on Fluid Mechanics (2015).
The quantum initiative will be operated by a syndicate of 5 universities split into three main centres and 2 energy centres while also including the centre of high-performance computing as the provider of the quantum infrastructure. The major aim of the quantum initiative will be to create favourable conditions for a globally competitive research environment in quantum technology and to grow a local quantum technology industry in South Africa.
With all preparations in place for South Africa to join the rise in quantum technology, the SA QuTI seeks to grow a national quantum industry by securing communication networks through quantum communication, developing quantum apps through quantum computing and also building quantum metrology. 59ce067264
