Programming Computers that Don’t Quite Exist…Writing code in a quantum language such as Microsoft’s Q# may seem a bit ahead of its time. But when you consider the speed at which quantum is coming, now may very well be the time to get engaged with quantum language programming. Here’s a quick read from the team at MIT Technology Review discussing such musings…

Y2K? Came and went. Here comes Y2Q.  A widely circulated piece, “QUANTUM COMPUTING IS THE NEXT BIG SECURITY RISK”, provides ample reason to give pause to consider the implications of quantum computing for cyber security; every institution from banking to medicine to transportation stands to face this almost certain reality. Just like Y2K, we should be preparing for Y2Q…

Quantum Encryption and Science Satellite (QEYSSat), Oh Canada!  Canadian Space Agency officials have revelaed their plans to take quantum key distribution studies into space. The QEYSSat mission will help in making key distribution available to satellite enabled communications. The CSA has teamed with the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo to forge ahead with this mission…

Qubits and Manufacturing; Step to a Solution?  Is it the error correction or is it? Most CMOS chips are composed of silicon and until some recent thoughtful research, deemed incompatible with qubits. Try “quantum dot qubits” on for size. CMOS fabrication technologies as we know them may be scalable up into the millions of q-dot qubits, so thinks this group of researchers.

Microsoft’s Q#, Topological Qubits, and Error Correction…Not only do we at The Qubit Report think quantum computing is the future, but Microsoft apprently says so in its layperson’s-speak article ‘The future is quantum’. Microsoft is painting the picture that they are all-in for the quantum revolution…

Taking Stealth out of the Sky thru Quantum Radar…Sounds like Batman has a case to solve, or not. China is aiming its radar at the latest in stealth fighters trying to detect them at 60+ miles. Using entangled photons and sending light through crystals, they hope to be able to etch-a-sketch details from a potential stealth ‘adversary’ on its trip through the sky…
