Fault-tolerant quantum computer based on Schrödinger-cat qubits

At the AWS Center for Quantum Computing, Amazon’s scientists are doing scientific research and development on Quantum Computing algorithms and hardware. They posted a summary of their findings from their first architecture paper that describes a theoretical blueprint for a fault-tolerant quantum computer that features a novel approach to Quantum Error Correction (QEC). The paper can be […]

NCSC: Quantum security technologies

The British Nation Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has just released an interesting white paper which sets out its position on two security technologies that rely on quantum physics: Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) and Quantum Random Number Generation (QRNG). Particularly, the NCSC clearly mentions that: Given the specialised hardware requirements of QKD over classical cryptographic key […]

White Paper: Cryptography and Quantum Computing

We often read or hear that Quantum Computing will strongly impact certain activities such as financial transactions or e-commerce because no cryptography could resist it. In May 2018, during a meeting of The Churchill Club in San Francisco, Arvind Krishna, director of IBM Research, announced that: “Anyone wishing to protect its data for the next […]

White Paper: Quantum Valuation

How can we measure Quantum Computing ‘power’ in comparison of Classical Computing? Does Moore’s Law apply to Quantum Computing? (The famous Moore’s Law is a empiric but foundation law of modern electronics and computers.) Gordon Moore, a giant in the history of computing and co-founder of Fairchild and Intel, told in the 60s that the number […]

NCSC: Quantum-safe cryptography

The British Nation Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has just released a white paper intended for those who use or build cryptographic products and systems. It describes the threat to cryptography posed by the emergence of quantum computing, and includes guidance for transitioning to systems that will resist this threat. The NCSC mentions that: The NCSC […]
