Krysta Svore, principal researcher at Microsoft, demonstrates the new Microsoft Quantum Development Kit.

The Quantum Development Kit makes it easy for you to start experimenting with quantum computing now and includes: · A native, quantum-focused programming language called Q# · Local and Azure-hosted simulators for you to test your Q# solution · And sample Q# code and libraries to help you get started

In this demo, she walks through a few code examples and explains where quantum principles like superposition and entanglement apply. She explains how quantum communication works using teleportation as your first “Hello World” inspired program. And keep watching to see more complex computations with molecular hydrogen.  

Ever since my concussion three years ago, I have been fascinated by the brain and how to nourish it.

A major breakthrough in quantum tech allows us to see brain activity in far greater detail than ever before.

Pindex examines the fascinating research going on this space.

What If ponders what the world would be like if we already had quantum computers. I’d hold off on their advice about throwing out your old computers though.

Get rid of your old computers, because the future of technology has arrived! It’s not artificial intelligence or virtual reality; it’s something called quantum computing! And it could completely revolutionize every aspect of our society, from healthcare to finance, and even national security. But how does it work?When can we expect it? And what could happen if it gets into the wrong hands?

Professor Andrea Morello, Professor of Quantum Engineering at University of New South Wales, takes us on a journey through the inner workings of a quantum computer.

He gives an accessible introduction to the physical principles that underpin quantum information, and highlights the differences and similarities between classical and quantum processors.

In this nature video explains Google’s recent announcement on reaching a major quantum computing milestone.

Google says they have reached ‘quantum supremacy’ with their quantum computer ‘Sycamore’. Nature reporter Elizabeth Gibney explains what this means, why IBM disagree, and the significance for quantum computing.
