IIT Roorkee and IISc Bangalores Quantum Computer Simulator Kit
The Quantum Computing Toolkit Project is one of the country’s first efforts to address the common challenge of expanding the boundaries of quantum computer research in India. Various academics are carrying out the project, including scientists, engineers and industry representatives from various leading institutions, including IISc, IIT-Roorkee and C-DAC. QSim combines a powerful QC Simulator with a graphical workbench that allows you to construct quantum circuits and programs, view their output, access online support, solve examples and related literature / material.
Infosys’ Quantum Computing Capabilities at AWS
Infosys intends to use Amazon Braket to develop, test and evaluate quantum applications using circuit simulators and quantum hardware technologies. As quantum technologies evolve, researchers and developers will experiment with and explore complex computational challenges. Infosys’ use of Amazon Braket intends to prepare organizations for a future in which quantum computers affect business.
IBM and IIT Madras work together on Quantum Computing
IBM and IIT Madras work with teaching and research in quantum computers. This collaboration aims to provide academics, researchers, and students at IIT Madras with access to IBM’s quantum systems and tools through IBM Cloud to promote cooperative quantum computer research. The Quantum Computation Lab courses will be taught in collaboration with teachers at IIT Madras and IBM researchers and involve hands-on laboratory sessions on IBM quantum systems. They will complement existing courses on quantum information and computing.
BMW and Volkswagen join the Consortium for Quantum Technology
BMW and Volkswagen have joined the Quantum technology consortium, a group of ten German companies dedicated to developing quantum computer applications for cars. The Quantum Technology and Applications Consortium (QUTAC) will promote basic quantum computing and application researchers can apply in the automotive industry. According to BMW, the purpose of this new collaboration is to further develop the basics of quantum computing for viable industrial applications.
First commercial quantum memory sold by Qunnect
Qunnects Quantum Memory can store and release individual photons on-demand while maintaining their quantum state with an accuracy of more than 95%. Unlike previous quantum memory systems, Qunnect is unique. It works without extreme cooling or vacuum support infrastructure, a critical design issue for real-world implementation and scalability. In addition, all devices are contained in a conventional server rack form factor, allowing easy integration into existing fiber hubs. Qunnect develops these devices to work with low-loss interfaces and existing telecommunications infrastructure.
IBM researchers demonstrate the superiority of quantum computers
IBM researchers have mathematically shown that local quantum computers can perform some functions that limited classical computers cannot perform. However, they recognize that quantum computers cannot simply outperform their classic counterparts because of their unusual architecture. Instead, it is necessary to discover and write theoretical justifications for the benefits of the quantum computer and demonstrate them empirically, they stated. New research mathematically states that certain functions cannot be calculated by a limited classical computer, but by a local quantum computer.
