Quantum Computing on Cusp

Posted by in categories: computing, quantum physics

I have shared this many times that we’re within a 5 year window; and glad others are seeing the same thing.


A new age of quantum computing may be around the corner. Three new research groups predict that a shift away from von Neumann toward quantum computing is upon us.

Upcoming Predictions of Scientist to Watch Out For on 2017

Posted by in category: futurism

Always fun to read; most are no surprise.


As one year ends and another comes into life, it’s a time of both reflection and prediction. People tend to reflect on the past year – what’s gone right and what’s gone wrong, and also predict how things are going to go for the next 12 months. In terms of technological advancements, 2016 bought us quite a few, but according some of the biggest names in science, 2017 will be even better. Keep reading to see what they had to say:

Running an experiment in the IBM Quantum Experience

Posted by in categories: computing, information science, quantum physics

IBM Research is making quantum computing available to the public for the first time, providing access to a quantum computing platform from any desktop or mobile device via the cloud. Users of the platform called the IBM Quantum Experience can create algorithms and run experiments on an IBM quantum processor, learn about quantum computing through tutorials and simulations, and get inspired by the possibilities of a quantum computer.

To learn more about IBM’s quantum computing research and get access to the IBM Quantum Experience please visit: http://ibm.com/quantumcomputing

The Message of Thomas Friedman’s New Book: It’s Going to Be O.K

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, education, law, sustainability

Friedman argues that man is actually a fairly adaptable creature. The problem is that our capacity to adapt is being outpaced by a “supernova,” built from three ever faster things: technology, the market and climate change.

Man has sped up his own response times. It now takes us only 10–15 years to get used to the sort of technological changes that we used to absorb in a couple of generations; but what good is that when technology becomes obsolete every five to seven years? The supernova is making a joke of both patent law and education. Governments, companies and individuals are all struggling to keep up.


Friedman’s main cause for optimism is based on a trip back to St. Louis Park, the Minneapolis suburb where he grew up. This is perhaps the most elegiac, memorable part of the book — a piece of sustained reportage that ranks alongside “From Beirut to Jerusalem,” Friedman’s masterly first book about the Middle East. He points out that the same communal virtues that made Minnesota work when he was young have survived — and are still useful. But somehow, the passages that lingered with this reader were the ones about the good old days that have disappeared — when baseball used to be a sport that everybody could afford to watch, when local boys like the young Friedman could caddy at the United States Open, when everybody in Friedman’s town went to public schools.

Universal Quantum computers could replace supercomputers within 5 years

Posted by in categories: quantum physics, supercomputing

Some researchers are predicting that the market for “universal” quantum computers that do everything a supercomputer can do plus everything a supercomputer can not do — in a chip that fits in the palm of your hand — are on the verge of emerging. The rise of quantum computing may be as important a shift as John von Neumann’s stored program-and-data concept.

Here are some of the scientists and breakthroughs that will enable this shift.

Robert Schoelkopf (Yale, Quantum Circuits inc) claims a number of “world’s firsts,” the latest of which is the longest “coherence time” for a quantum superposition.
