The rate at which quantum computing is hitting the media stream is ever-increasing. This piece is a collection of recent articles and reports covering various aspects of quantum computing from the lens of algorithms and software. Mea Cubitt

Google tries out error correction on its quantum processor | The current generation of quantum hardware has been termed “NISQ”: noisy, intermediate-scale quantum processors. “Intermediate-scale” refers to a qubit count that is typically in the dozens, while “noisy” references the fact that current qubits frequently produce errors. These errors can be caused by problems setting or reading the qubits or by the qubit losing its state during calculations.  Source: ars TECHNICA.   Google tries out error correction on its quantum processor…
