Radio Free HPC looks at the Quest for Quantum Supremacy

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the big three technologies of the day on the Hype curve:

  • Machine Learning. The GTC conference is coming up, and we are seeing a continuing series of announcements like the high density deep learning server from Lamda Labs.
  • Cryptocurrency. GPUs are in short supply as crypto miners continue to buy mass quantities of consumer devices.
  • Quantum Computing. This week Google unveiled their 72-Qbit Bristlecone Quantum Chip, which they claim has them on the road to Quantum Supremacy. At the same time, quantum seems to be going mainstream, as evidenced by a panel discussion this week at SXSW. You can listen to the full recording of the session right here on insideHPC.

Quantum Computing was the focus of a panel discussion at SXSW this week. From left: Bo Ewald (D-Wave Systems) Antia Lamas-Linares (TACC) Patricia Baumhart (D-Wave Systems) Jerry Chow (IBM) and Andrew Fursman 1Qbit.

After that, we do our Catch of the Week:
