The US Economy & Quantum Computing: Short-Term Headwinds, Long-Term Opportunities

Selling quantum computing proofs of concept is hard under good economic conditions. As the US (which is currently the largest market for quantum computing1) stares down a potential recession in quarter three or four of this year, the job of business development (BD) professionals in our industry is going to get harder. But all things will pass with time. And while there are short-term headwinds facing the US market, long-term opportunities are already emerging. We'll explore both of those areas, starting with what's near-term. Short-Term H ...

Finding Your Product Market Fit: Adding Unique Value in a Crowded Market

Have you ever attended a quantum computing conference and noticed that the vendor pitches sound ... similar? Broadly speaking, quantum computing companies with software offerings have the same business model of creating a solution to a challenging R&D problem that's focused on quantum machine learning, optimization, or quantum chemistry. Overall, this works well. But put yourself in a consumer's shoes and imagine that you're at a quantum computing conference talking to vendors for the first time. If each vendor walked you through the s ...

Quantum Strategist Feature – Jasmine Soor Arachi

1. Tell us about the first time you heard about quantum?The first time I heard about Quantum was in 1995, when I read a book by American Physicist and Nobel Laureate Murray Gell-Man called the Quark and the Jaguar. It completely disrupted my paradigm of what reality is and anchored in a curiosity and passion for “quantum” that burns bright to this very day. (Please see this online review of the Quark and the Jaguar from Physics Today in 1994.)2. What made you interested in this space?My desire to understand how everything in the universe operates a ...

Stratethon: A Unique Approach to Building Quantum Planning Skills

Hackathons represent an exciting educational experience for programmers, coders, data scientists and other pursuits and have become ubiquitous globally in the last decade. Quantum technologies, while nascent compared to other IT fields, hold hackathons as well. Quantum Futures & CERN hold their hackathon over a weekend dedicated to “hacking on quantum computers at the Fields Institute in Toronto, the world’s most renown mathematics institute.” MIT annually holds IQuHack (interdisciplinary Quantum HACKathon) for high ...

Quantum Roadmap Series: How to build your own quantum roadmap

Roadmaps offer an invaluable structure to the evolution of technology and technology deployment. Incorporating a complex technology such as quantum requires even greater diligence through roadmaps. In this article, we cover five types of roadmap: security, simulation, communication, standards and sensing. Security Roadmap With the maturity of quantum technology, and the approach of Y2Q, where can CxO's look for information to build out their own #quantum security roadmaps? Below are some of the key players with updated links:National Ins ...


Exploring Quantum Industry Consortiums Series: #1. Quantum Economic Development Consortium

In our quest to accelerate the market adoption of quantum technologies, the Quantum Strategy Institute (QSI) looks at both enablers and hurdles businesses face in making these complex, forward looking decisions.

For an industry that is on the verge of commercial expansion, this includes forming new industry consortiums, adding new working groups to existing consortiums, and forming an interactive industry relationship with the policy making governments.

In this series of papers under QSI’s Government and Consortium Relations pillar, we’ll explore the global landscape of these initiatives. This paper, first in the series, discusses the US-based Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C).

Quantum Machine Learning: A Roadmap for Technologists

  In 1935, Einstein wrote a paper with Boris Podolsky and Nathen Rosen trying to expose the weird behavior of quantum mechanics calling it “spooky action at a distance”. Among its many weird behaviors, the notion of quantum superposition really defies our imagination.

Even weirder, if one looks into a quantum system of say two electrons and they are in an entangled state, if you measure the property of one electron, say its rotation, you can tell what the other electron’s rotation is — without even bothering to measure it. Is it weird or astonishing? I think both.
