Standard measurement units like the meter and the kilogram used to be defined by physical objects, such as a prototype bar and a platinum cylinder. As of May 2019, all measurement units are now defined by the cesium atom and the fundamental constants of the universe.
Improving thermal medical imaging of the eye with a new quantum camera and developing new materials to enable “beyond 5G” wireless communications are among the goals of six projects recently supported by the Quantum Quest Seed Fund (QQSF).
Des chercheurs ont mis au point le premier réfrigérateur fonctionnel permettant d’amener des molécules à des températures ultrabasses. Ces molécules peuvent être d’excellentes candidates au fonctionnement d’ordinateurs et simulateurs quantiques.
Five University of Waterloo students, including three graduate students from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), have teamed up with Google to develop software to accelerate machine learning using quantum science.
The collaborative effort resulted in the creation of an open-source hybrid quantum-classical machine learning software platform, called TensorFlow Quantum.
The Institute for Quantum Computing acknowledges that we are on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg, and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our actions toward reconciliation take place through our research, teaching, learning, and community events, with guidance from the University’s Indigenous Initiatives Office.
