American Pie? No, This Time its Quantum Computing Pie.

Broad and interesting perspectives.  Original piece discusses many aspects from startups in the workforce-limited environment to hybrid computing.  Easy read, informative for the lay-person.  Left us with a sense the quantum computing industry is still very early in development.  Qubit.

Getting A Slice Of The Quantum Computing Pie

Excerpts and salient points ~

+  At the ‘From Lab to Market: Turning Quantum Research to Real-Life Impact’ panel discussion organised by SGInnovate and Entrepreneur First, a team of experts shared their thoughts on how quantum computing could be a game changer for organisations. Moderated by Mr Jeremy Youker, director of venture building at SGInnovate, the panel comprised Dr Tommaso Demarie, CEO and co-founder, Entropica Labs; Dr Shabnam Safaei, founder-in-residence, Entrepreneur First; and Dr Tan Si-Hui, chief science officer, Horizon Quantum Computing.

“With quantum computers, more powerful algorithms for ‘unsupervised learning’ could be developed and deployed,” said Dr Demarie. Read more from Asian Scientist Magazine at:

+  For example, instead of being presented with an image of an apple that has been labelled ‘apple’, an algorithm for unsupervised learning would automatically recognise things like colour, size and shape to conclude that the image being presented is that of an apple. The computational power required for performing autonomous learning is tremendous, which is why quantum computing becomes necessary. Read more from Asian Scientist Magazine at:

+  Further complicating matters is the issue of compatibility between hardware and software solutions for quantum computing. “[To build a quantum computer], there are different possible systems such as superconducting qubits, trapped ion qubits and so on,” she explained. Because of this, the algorithm designed for one type of quantum computing system could become completely irrelevant on a different quantum computing system. She thus advises companies to pay attention to potential future developments in the quantum technology space even as they build up software for existing systems.
