Quantum computers can solve a linear algebra problem faster than classical computers, according to a new study published in Science. The finding proves that constant-depth quantum circuits are more powerful than their classical counterparts, and provides a new sense of how quantum technology will be a key to more powerful computing.
The Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) congratulates Donna Strickland, Associate Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, on receiving the 2018 Nobel Prize for her research in the field of laser physics.
“I am beyond thrilled to congratulate my colleague Donna Strickland,” said Raymond Laflamme, founding director of IQC. “Her ground-breaking work has propelled research in this field forward, leading to discoveries and applications in laser physics and enabling experiments in other areas, including quantum information.”
Lights, camera, action! The Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) is once again partnering with the Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore for the Quantum Shorts Film Festival.
Amateur and professional filmmakers are invited to submit entries up to five minutes in length that use quantum physics as a springboard for their narrative or concept.
