Quantum in the News: IBM Touts ‘Entanglement Forging’ Simulation; Multiverse Launches Quantum-based Stock Valuations

Quantum is in the news this week, with IBM today announcing new research on its “entanglement forging” simulation method and Multiverse Computing launching  a quantum-based method for financial institutions to calculate stock valuations. At IBM, “entanglement forging” creates a “remarkably accurate” simulation of a water molecule using half as many qubits on IBM’s 27-qubit Falcon […]

Amazon Braket to offer Multivendor Quantum Computing Service

Today AWS announced Amazon Braket, a fully managed service that enables scientists, researchers, and developers to begin experimenting with computers from quantum hardware providers (including D-Wave Systems, IonQ, and Rigetti) in a single place. The quantum service is one of three key initiatives as a part of the company’s plans to help advance quantum computing technologies. “As a fully managed service, Braket makes it possible for customers to get started on quantum computing by providing a single development environment to build quantum algorithms, test them on simulated quantum computers, and try them on a range of different quantum hardware architectures.”

IonQ posts benchmarks for quantum computer

Today quantum computing startup IonQ released the results of two rigorous real-world tests that show that its quantum computer can solve significantly more complex problems with greater accuracy than results published for any other quantum computer. “The real test of any computer is what can it do in a real-world setting. We challenged our machine with tough versions of two well-known algorithms that demonstrate the advantages of quantum computing over conventional devices. The IonQ quantum computer proved it could handle them. Practical benchmarks like these are what we need to see throughout the industry.”

IonQ Performs First Quantum Simulation of a Water Molecule

Today IonQ announced that its quantum computer has achieved a critical milestone: simulating the water molecule with accuracy approaching what is needed for practical applications in the promising field of computational chemistry. “A manuscript released today describes how IonQ scientists calculated the energy of the water molecule in its lowest or natural state. The results from IonQ’s machine approached the precision a computer model would need to make an accurate chemical prediction, known as chemical accuracy.”
