An ambitious plan to build a quantum computer the size of a soccer field could soon become a reality. A startup founded by the researchers behind the idea has just come out of stealth with $4.5 million in funding.
An international team have succeeded in transforming 20 entangled quantum bits into a state of superposition. This is an important step in the development of quantum computers after the old record of 14 qubits remained unchanged since 2011.
IBM has announced that its System Q One quantum computer has doubled in performance in each of the past two years. IBM is one of the big-name companies working to create a truly useful quantum computer.
IBM unveiled the IBM Q System One, billed as the first-ever quantum computer designed for businesses to put to their own use – though the company is clear that this is only the first step towards a broader revolution.
IonQ was founded on a gamble that 'trapped ion quantum' computing could outperform the silicon-based quantum computers that Google and others are building. As of right now, it does.
Scientists have now demonstrated for the first time that quantum computers do indeed offer advantages - they developed a quantum circuit that can solve a problem that is unsolvable using any equivalent classical circuit.
Spanish researchers claim they have successfully mimicked Darwinian evolution using a quantum computer.
System lets researchers explore phase transitions in a quantum system.
A new quantum device entangles 20 quantum bits together at the same time, making it perhaps one of the most entangled, controllable devices yet.
Researchers from two teams now working with Intel have reported advances in a new quantum computing architecture, called spin qubits.
