Quantum computing

achieved a significant breakthrough in the field of quantum computers, by maintaining quantum coherence at room temperature. Quantum coherence describes the ability of a quantum system to maintain a well-defined state over time, without being affected by environmental disturbances
The non-Abelian anions are quasi-particles with fascinating statistical and topological properties. Until recently, these particles were only theoretical, but now a research group from Harvard University has created them for the first time in the laboratory. The discovery may encourage companies in the field of quantum computing to use non-Abelian anions to create durable qubits.
The first study program of its kind from the Technion House of Continuing Studies is designed to train professional and skilled personnel for the industry that deals with computing and quantum technology, which is developing by leaps and bounds and is expected to change the tech worlds from end to end and among other things to provide solutions to security challenges that the State of Israel faces even these days
IBM Quantum Heron introduces IBM's highest quantum computing performance ever, with 133 qubits and an architecture that improves error reduction by five times compared to its predecessor - Eagle
At the same time, the Israeli company Quantum Machinery will use at the Israeli Quantum Computing Center a technology that combines NVIDIA Grace Hopper superchips with quantum processors (QPUs)
The achievement may accelerate research in new quantum technologies and developments in security, biological sensing, wireless communication and more
The companies presented at the ISC 2023 conference the world's largest quantum circuit for industrial simulation, in order to promote the development of quantum computing in the field of aviation and space. It was also revealed at the conference: the Jülich Supercomputing Center, one of the largest quantum computing centers in Europe, will establish a quantum computing laboratory in collaboration with NVIDIA
As part of the collaboration, IBM will provide modern scientists with access to quantum computing systems, and they will learn how quantum computing technologies can be applied to problems that were previously intractable for classical computers.
The IBM Quantum System One computer is part of a ten-year research collaboration between the companies. Among the first research projects - a study to find existing drugs for Alzheimer's patients and other diseases, led by Prof. Michal Rosen-Zvi from the IBM research laboratory in Israel
Weizmann Institute of Science scientists present the rotating quantum microscope
Researchers have built an electrical circuit that can retain quantum information over time, which may improve the performance of future quantum computing
Tabor Electronics is about to finish these days the development of a first server of its kind in the quantum world. Tabor products were used by IBM to build the largest quantum computers to date. The computer will reach milli degrees Celsius in eight hours instead of 24
Today, there are already several effective technologies for amplifying and detecting weak microwave signals, and some of them make it possible to detect even a single microwave particle (photon), but they require the use of superconducting materials cooled almost to the temperature of absolute zero, the Technion researchers were able to increase the necessary cooling by more than 50 degrees
The Innovation Authority announced the establishment of the largest conglomerate in its history - a quantum computing conglomerate with the participation of Elta, Quantum Art, Classic, Kedma and Raphael. The technological development will be supported by leading academic groups in Israel
Researchers developed an algorithm that showed a basic quantum phenomenon: the immediate effect of one variable on other variables
A team of researchers from Harvard University, MIT and Calcutta in collaboration with Google successfully simulated a traversable wormhole with the help of a quantum computer. The experiment performed on Google's quantum processor demonstrated the passage of information in the interlaced system. According to the principle of holography, the physics demonstrated in the experiment is the same as that of particles passing through wormholes. Although it was conducted on only nine qubits, the experiment is of great importance because it illustrates for the first time the possibility of testing quantum gravity with the help of entangled systems.
The company also announced at the "Quantum Summit" a new quantum software - Qiskit Runtime - which handles error correction and mitigating background noise, which hinders the quantum processors from operating and providing reliable results
Inspired by the winners of the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics, we will discuss Bell's theorem without introducing formulas and inequalities. In this article we will illustrate how experiments with entangled particles contradict the assumption that there are hidden variables and that quantum mechanics is indeed reliable.
The quantum systems are in the stage of "small and noisy computers." Until we create noise-free quantum systems, a lot of work is being done combining classical systems with an emphasis on algorithms that will allow quantum calculations to be performed in existing systems
For the first time in the world, a quantum computing center is being established that includes three different quantum technologies with a common control layer * Project budget - NIS 100 million for three years
According to Aviv Zaevi, Vice President of Technological Infrastructure at the Innovation Authority, in the field of quantum computing (not including quantum communication and encryption) there are currently about thirty companies operating that will be able to expose and influence standardization * The Innovation Authority also intends to soon publish the results of the tender for the establishment of a national laboratory for quantum computing
Is the current generation of electronic encryption strong enough to protect your information online today? The American Standards Office thinks not
The competition, designed to encourage innovation and creativity in the field, will award prizes and international recognition to the world's leading quantum software developers
As part of its roadmap for the quantum era, the computing giant will introduce a quantum processor with 433 qubits this year, a processor with over a thousand qubits next year, and a processor with more than 2025 qubits and parallel work capacity in 4,000 - to take quantum computing out of the laboratory and into the practical world
