Most enterprise execs already want to adopt quantum computing, survey says


A new report from Zapata Computing, a developer of quantum-ready software, found that 69% of all surveyed enterprise executives are looking into ways that quantum computing can benefit their companies. The study queried 300 CIOs, CTOs, and "other VP-level and above executives" at global enterprises with annual revenues over $250 million. It found that the vast majority have already begun looking into quantum computing, with a larger 74% noting that companies will "fall behind" if they fail to tap into it. The driving force behind this positive sentiment is the belief that quantum technology could offer a competitive edge; 41% of respondents expect it to have a positive impact on their company's performance within two years. A smaller 12% either believe they have already benefited from it or will within one year.

Quantum Mechanics on the Classical Computer


In recent years, there has been a surge of interest in quantum computing, with many major companies and organizations investing significant resources into developing this technology. Hybrid classical-quantum computing (HCQC) is a promising approach that could potentially enable the construction of powerful quantum computers. In this article, we will firstly review the basics of quantum computing and classical computing. We will then describe how hybrid classical-quantum computing works and discuss some of the advantages and disadvantages of this approach. Finally, we will outline some potential applications of hybrid classical-quantum computing.

Quantum computing use cases are getting real--what you need to know


Accelerating advances in quantum computing are serving as powerful reminders that the technology is rapidly advancing toward commercial viability. In just the past few months, for example, a research center in Japan announced a breakthrough in entangling qubits (the basic unit of information in quantum, akin to bits in conventional computers) that could improve error correction in quantum systems and potentially make large-scale quantum computers possible. Mayank Sharma, "There's been another huge quantum computing breakthrough," TechRadar, September 9, 2021, And one company in Australia has developed software that has shown in experiments to improve the performance of any quantum-computing hardware. As breakthroughs accelerate, investment dollars are pouring in, and quantum-computing start-ups are proliferating.



Quantum computing allows almost all tasks to be completed at much faster speeds and with lower energy consumption. Google, IBM, and other well-respected companies like them, are just a few examples. Over the years, many companies have made significant investments in quantum computing. The trend suggests that quantum computing will experience rapid growth. It is imperative to take up the right quantum computing classes.

Photonic Quantum Computing with Perceval -- Quantum Computing UK


This tutorial is the first tutorial in the series on Photonic Quantum Computing with the Perceval API from Quandela. In this tutorial we will look how to install Perceval and then how to implement a simple optical circuit that uses a beam splitter to put qubits in to superposition. Perceval is an open source framework developed by Quandela that allows users to compose and simulate photonic circuits. It allows users to implement a number of optical components from Beam splitters which we will be using in this tutorial to Polarizers, Phase Shifters, and single photon sources. For more on Perceval go to the website here: The Perceval API can be installed easily from pip.
