Quantum software in the NISQ era

A battle is starting for influence over future quantum software platforms. This will have long term implications. Break through announcements in quantum hardware continue to gather apace. While we are still a long way from a universal fault tolerant quantum computer, we are about to enter a period where noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) technology is a reality. A…

Introduction to the Quantum Landscape

Investment in quantum technologies is rapidly accelerating at both a national and company level. New partnering opportunities are emerging globally. A wide variety of academic research, investment, patent, software and pilot deployment activities are underway across the Quantum Technology sector (18)(17)(13)(9)(4). National Programmes The US has perhaps the most visible quantum technologies presence due to…
