Podcast: The Age of Quantum Computing is (Almost) Here

In this WSJ Podcast, scientists from the IBM’s T J Watson Research Center describe how quantum computing will enable a new age of scientific discovery. “Quantum computers are incredibly powerful machines that take a new approach to processing information. Built on the principles of quantum mechanics, they exploit complex and fascinating laws of nature that are always there, but usually remain hidden from view. By harnessing such natural behavior, quantum computing can run new types of algorithms to process information more holistically.”

Radio Free HPC Says Goodbye to Net Neutrality

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the FCC’s move to abolish Net Neutrality regulations put in place during the Obama administration. Dan thinks this is a good move to remove unnecessary regulations, but rest of the crew is worried about where this will lead the future of the Internet.

Fortune 500 Firms Join IBM Q Network for Quantum Computing Research

Today IBM announced the first clients to tap into its IBM Q early-access commercial quantum computing systems to explore practical applications important to business and science. In all, twelve initial organizations joined to foster a growing quantum computing ecosystem based on IBM’s open source quantum software and developer tools.

Quantum Computing Ecosystem moves forward with IBM Q Systems

“Over the next year, IBM Q scientists will continue to work to improve its devices including the quality of qubits, circuit connectivity, and error rates of operations. For example, within six months, the IBM team was able to extend the coherence times for the 20 qubit processor to be twice that of the publically available 5 and 16 qubit systems on the IBM Q experience.”

IBM to Build Commercially Available Quantum Computing Systems

“IBM has invested over decades to growing the field of quantum computing and we are committed to expanding access to quantum systems and their powerful capabilities for the science and business communities,” said Arvind Krishna, senior vice president of Hybrid Cloud and director for IBM Research. “Following Watson and blockchain, we believe that quantum computing will provide the next powerful set of services delivered via the IBM Cloud platform, and promises to be the next major technology that has the potential to drive a new era of innovation across industries.”
