The Energy Advantage of Quantum Computers

By Yuval Boger, Chief Marketing Officer, QuEra Computing Inc. While quantum computers will ultimately be able to solve problems that no classical supercomputer can, what happens when quantum systems merely match classical’s performance for certain problems? What’s quantum’s value then? One compelling answer: energy efficiency. Based on data from the Top500 list of the world’s […]

@HPCpodcast: Hyperion’s Bob Sorensen on the State and Future of Quantum Computing

This week’s episode of the @HPCpodcast features a return guest, Bob Sorensen, vice president of research at HPC industry analyst firm Hyperion Research, to talk with us about the state of the quantum computing sector. Sorensen offered his quantum insights at last month’s ISC 2023 conference in Hamburg, and here he talks about the highlights from his latest update, including market sizing (it’s bigger than you might think), growth projections (more than you might think) and how companies are investigating and experimenting with quantum and quantum-related project work. We also touch on progress in making quantum a practical reality, technical barriers, customer sentiment, recent advances in noise management and quantum computing geopolitics.
