Platforms, present and future II

There are platforms and then there are platforms In the opening post of this series I considered the “big nine” mostly from the point of view of their capability to offer storage, processing and access (this latter mediated by Internet). These nine platforms are quite different from one another, as …

Has Quantum Supremacy been achieved?

Scientists have been dreaming and discussing Quantum Computers for at least 50 years (for a nice timeline of ideas and implementation of Quantum Computing click here) but the construction of an effective QC has proved elusive. Big players, like Google, IBM, NASA in the US, National Scientific organisations in Japan, …

Loihi is upping its “neurones” to 8 million

Several years ago, at the beginning of this decade, researchers started to look into computer architectures that would mimic the neuronal networks we find in our brain, in particular networks where storage and computation was one and the same. DARPA launched the project SyNAPSE to foster the creation of neuromorphic …

QC: may I say that I am skeptical?

I have been hearing, and I have been following quantum computer (ideas and prototypes) for many years and I saw progress but the end of the line is nowhere nearer, at least this is my impression. Intel has showcased its 49Qubit quantum chip, Tangle Lake, at CES 2018 (which is an …
