The race is on to achieve quantum supremacy, the stage when quantum computing devices will be able to solve problems faster than classical computers.
“Quantum computing is the next technological frontier that will change the world and we cannot afford to fall behind,” said Senator Harris. “It could create jobs for the next generation, cure diseases, and above all else – make our nation stronger and safer. And without adequate research and coordination in quantum computing, we risk falling behind our global competition in the cyberspace race which leaves us vulnerable to attacks from our adversaries. We must act now to address the challenges we face in the development of this technology – our future depends on it.”
“Quantum computers have not matured yet to outperform today’s classical computers unless they can correct for errors that disrupt the fragile quantum states of their qubits, one of many technical obstacles remained to resolve. The hybrid quantum-HPC systems emerge as intermittent solution combining the best of both worlds and enabling researchers to solve complex problems more efficiently by distributing tasks between quantum device and high performance computing system.”
“QIT is the first quantum machine learning cloud platform following the quantum-hybridization principal. It integrates the state-of-the-art quantum intelligence (QI) algorithms with world-leading quantum computing hardware and combines them with classical computing infrastructure. By addressing practical problems in machine learning and AI, this will lead us closer to quantum supremacy in the NISQ era”
“It’s easy to see that Israel, being already a technology powerhouse with vast VC ecosystem and a bustling entrepreneurial and startup culture, is on its way to becoming the next quantum computing superpower. While the initial government funding of $80 Million may seem modest, one should not underestimate Israel’s propensity of doing more with less.”
“I’m skeptical that these efforts will ever result in a practical quantum computer. Such a computer would have to be able to manipulate—on a microscopic level and with enormous precision—a physical system characterized by an unimaginably huge set of parameters, each of which can take on a continuous range of values. Could we ever learn to control the more than 10300 continuously variable parameters defining the quantum state of such a system? My answer is simple. No, never.”
