Future quantum computers will one day bring us many great benefits. Unfortunately they will also break many of the cryptographic protocols on which current Internet security depends. Google’s quantum supremacy breakthrough notwithstanding, this is still most likely many years off. However, sensitive data intercepted and stored today, or long lifecycle ... read more

Google has achieved quantum supremacy – the ability to perform a calculation beyond the reach of conventional computers. This is a landmark scientific, mathematical and technical achievement. Though the road to general purpose quantum computing remains a long one, early applications will surprise many. Google had planned to announce quantum ... read more

Quantum computers can only realise their full potential by defeating the noise that plagues their delicate qubits. The field of quantum error correction offers some increasingly mature solutions. But it is also still a rapidly evolving field, and innovation here, as much as in hardware, will shape the future quantum ... read more

The main goal of Beit is to design and implement an algorithm for solving an all relevant NP-complete class of problems using Quantum Computers effectively, i.e. getting speedups better than quadratic, guaranteed by theory. We focus on Hamiltonian cycle problem, but since there are known reductions between different problems inside NP-complete class, we may say, that we are working on all of them at the same time. NP-complete problems are abstractions relevant for many real world problems encountered in logistics, manufacturing and warehousing at scale.
