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…

Using Data To Combat COVID-19

#FlattenTheCurve. #StayHome. #QuarantineLife. They’ve all been trending, and it seems like everybody knows that it’s time to stay at home, indoors, and as far apart (physically) as possible. We’re in the midst of a global pandemic, the worst we’ve seen in a century, yet we still see people out and about, on the streets, congregating in large groups, against the unambiguous advice of experts and health professionals.…

Little Blue Pearl





Little Blue Pearl - named after our planet - has kept me occupied for several days during my 14-day Coronavirus isolation. It is fully functional although I suppose it needs a makeover in terms of its appearance. Like a child after summer break, this is going to be my show-and-tell. LBP is designed to…

COVID-19 and the Importance of “Obsolete” Data

When the coronavirus broke out in the Wuhan province of China in December 2019, Taiwan was immediately in harm’s way.  Taiwan is less than 100 miles from the China mainland, and as recently as January there were a dozen roundtrip flights between Wuhan and Taipei every week. Yet as of March 19, Taiwan has only 108 cases of the coronavirus and one death.  Why?

Taiwan used the data from 2003 SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) epidemic that infected over…

Five Core Virtues For Data Science And Artificial Intelligence

Virtues should be digitized. As we speed toward reliance on machines to process more and more information and provide cognitive support for all types of decision-making, we must consider ways to imbue automated processes, data machinations and recommender systems with a sense of some of the finest human virtues.

We are at the crossroads of a moral…

Hypothesis Tests in One Picture

There are dozens of different hypothesis tests, so choosing one can be a little overwhelming. The good news is that one of the more popular tests will usually do the trick--unless you have unusual data or are working within very specific guidelines (i.e. in medical research).  The following picture shows several tests for a single population, and what…

COVID-19 infection and The Pangolin affection

Taken from pangolins, it has been found that the virus cause of COVID-19 is a “curse of the pangolin”.

The mammal Pangolin is hunted as game meat for both medicinal purposes and food consumption.

In addition, seven out of eight species of pangolins are threatened with extinction within the next generation. They have been a valuable commodity for…

Lognormal, Weibull, and Gamma distribution in One Picture

At first glance, the Lognormal, Weibull, and Gamma distributions distributions look quite similar to each other. Selecting between the three models is "quite difficult" (Siswadi & Quesenberry) and the problem of testing which distribution is the best fit for data has been studied by a multitude of researchers.

If all the models fit the data fairly…

Healthcare or the Economy?  Bull!  It’s Healthcare AND the Economy

We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to address one of modern society’s biggest challenges – the choice between healthcare or the economy.  For the past several decades, we have treated this as an “either or” choice between one or the other; that to improve the economy we must reduce healthcare spending or to improve healthcare we must sacrifice the economy.  To that sort of thinking I say BULL!

The coronavirus COVID-19 situation is showing us a very…

Quantitative Reductionism and the Pandemic of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused organizations to find different ways to maintain their operations amid calls for increased social distance. In some cases, employees have been asked to work from home in order to reduce the amount of social interaction in the workplace. Due to this emerging distance between these workers and their employers, I suggest that quantitative reduction will become more likely: for these employees, performance will be increasingly unrelated to their social presence…
