Join the Quantum Community

Today, at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco, I showed a simple machine learning demo, which I ran live on a real quantum computer in New York, through the cloud. Sure, that problem could just as easily have been solved using a classical algorithm on your laptop. But wouldn’t that have been a lot less exciting? […]

Understanding the Complexity of Quantum Circuit Compilation

What’s a quantum circuit? A quantum circuit can be a tricky thing. Quantum computing promises to be faster than classical computing in some, but not all computational problems. Whether quantum computers can be faster than classical computers depends on the nature of the problem being solved. When speedups are possible, the magnitude of the speedup […]
