Quantum Bayesian Network view of hybrid quantum-classical computation

Introduction Hybrid Quantum-Classical Computing (HQCC) (a.k.a. Variational Quantum Eigensolver (VQE)) is often touted as one of the main algorithms of Quantum AI. In fact, Rigetti, a Silicon Valley company which for several years has provided cloud access to their superconductive quantum computer, has designed its services around the HQCC paradigm.In this brief blog post, I will explain how HQCC can be understood in terms of quantum Bayesian networks. In the process, I will review some basic…See More

IBM's new quantum computer finally achieves a quantum advantage

The online conference, IBM Think 2020, was held in May 5-6 2020. During that conference, Dario Gil, IBM Research Director, was visibly, almost orgasmically, excited with his new toy, an IBM quantum computer.The IBM quantum computer already gives a clear quantum advantage to all IBM partners, as long as they rent the version that is mounted on a Mecha. What is a Mecha?, we…See More

Proxy Quantum Clouds and the JupyterHub

About 4 months ago, I wrote for this blog an article entitled "List of Quantum Clouds". In that article, I listed 17 "quantum clouds". By now, there are probably a few more. The "HWB" (hardware backed) quantum clouds of Dwave, Rigetti and IBM, offer access to already existing, on-line qc hardware. I'll call all the other quantum clouds "proxy" quantum clouds. Proxy…See More

Rigett's New Quantum Optimized Compiler

Check out the following paper unveiled last night in ArXiv:An Open-Source, Industrial-Strength Optimizing Compiler for Quantum Programs, by Robert S. Smith, Eric C. Peterson, Mark G. Skilbeck, Erik J. Davis.This is an exciting development for me since I have been a proponent and practitioner of the art of quantum compilers for a long time.The new "optimized quantum compiler" by Rigetti is a computer program that tackles the problem of searching for the "shortest" quantum circuit. Note, however,…See More

Google Releases TensorFlow Quantum

Today, Google published the following paper:TensorFlow Quantum: A Software Framework for Quantum Machine Learning, TensorFlow Quantum is software for doing Quantum Bayesian Networks. QB nets have been a dream of mine for 24 years, although Google's paper, despite having 20 authors and 129 references, never cites any of my work. When I first had the idea of Quantum Bayesian Networks, I thought it was such a cool idea that, within a span of a year, I published a paper, filed for a patent and…See More

So which is better for portfolio optimization, a NISQ Quantum Computer, or Fujitsu's "quantum inspired digital annealer"?

Quantum computers come in 2 varieties, quantum annealers and quantum gate models. So far, DWave is the only company selling quantum annealers.A third type of device is now available from Fujitsu. Fujitsu calls its device a "quantum inspired digital annealer". The Fujitsu device does not have any quantum correlation (quantum entanglement) between separate qubits, so, in…See More

List of Quantum Clouds

Clouds for doing quantum computing are becoming increasingly popular. Here is a list with links of those quantum clouds that already exist or are imminent. All are commercial but usually free for small jobs and open to the public. Most use open source q c software but some don't and have opted to keep their software proprietary. In Alphabetical Order. ✅ indicates working…See More

Welcome to Entanglish, a Python library for calculating quantum entanglement

"Speak Quantum Friend and Enter".Today, I uploaded to github my new software library called Entanglish (open source, under BSD license). Entanglish is a Python toolbox for calculations related to quantum entanglement (including squashed entanglement). Available at https://github.com/rrtucci/Entanglish. .Entanglish includes a 15 page paper entitled "A New Algorithm for calculating Squashed Entanglement and a Python Implementation Thereof" (to…See More

Lightweight but effective way of documenting a group of Jupyter Notebooks

My app Qubiter has a folder full of Jupyter notebooks (27 of them, in fact). Opening a notebook takes a short while, which is slightly annoying. I wanted to give Qubiter users the ability to peek inside all the notebooks at once, without having to open all of them. Qubiter’s new SUMMARY.ipynb notebook allows the user to do just that.SUMMARY.ipynb scans the directory in which it lives to find all Jupyter notebooks (other than itself) in that directory. It then prints for every notebook it finds…See More
