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…Continue

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…Continue

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)…Continue

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. ✅…Continue

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…Continue

I am pleased to announce that my quantum simulator Qubiter (available at GitHub, BSD license) now has a native TensorFlow Backend-Simulator (see its class `SEO_simulator_tf`, the `tf` stands for TensorFlow). This complements Qubiter's original numpy simulator (contained in its class `SEO_simulator`). A small step for Mankind, a giant leap for me! Hip Hip Hurray!
This means that Qubiter can now…Continue
