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

Math may have caught up with Google’s quantum-supremacy claims | In 2019, word filtered out that a quantum computer built by Google had performed calculations that the company claimed would be effectively impossible to replicate on supercomputing hardware. That turned out to not be entirely correct, since Google had neglected to consider the storage available to supercomputers; if that were included, the quantum computer’s lead shrank to just a matter of days.  Source: ars technica. John Timmer  Math may have caught up with Google’s quantum-supremacy claims…

Exploring Airline Gate-Scheduling Optimization Using Quantum Computers | One of the many complex problems facing the airline industry today is how to optimize large combinations of cargo and passenger traffic among the planes, gates, personnel and the air traffic flows originating or terminating at an airport. Finding solutions to this complex combinatorial optimization problem is important for airlines in order to be able to control costs and minimize inefficiencies (Stollenwerk et al. (2019)).  Source: arxiv.org.   Exploring Airline Gate-Scheduling Optimization Using Quantum Computers…

2021 ACM Gordon Bell Prize awarded to team for achieving real-time simulation of random quantum circuit | ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, named a 14-member team, drawn from Chinese institutions, recipients of the 2021 ACM Gordon Bell Prize for their project, Closing the “Quantum Supremacy” Gap: Achieving Real-Time Simulation of a Random Quantum Circuit Using a New Sunway Supercomputer.  Source: EurekAlert!.   2021 ACM Gordon Bell Prize awarded to team for achieving real-time simulation of random quantum circuit…

(INTERVIEW) Cryptolab aims to secure firm position in global homomorphic encryption market | As a pioneer in homomorphic encryption research, Cheon Jung-hee, a prominent mathematician and cryptographer in South Korea, has pushed for the early introduction of quantum-resistant cryptography technology, saying that if quantum computers are commercialized, existing encryption algorithms, which were difficult to solve even after decades, will be resolved within minutes.  Source: Aju Business Daily.   (INTERVIEW) Cryptolab aims to secure firm position in global homomorphic encryption market…
