Quantum Computing for Climate Modeling and Environmental Research

Quantum computing will not operate in a vacuum but will be integrated with services operating together in the cloud. It is part of the future evolution of a compute platform with a mesh of quantum computers, classical computers and GPUs; more powerful together than separately. This behavior is completely different from classical parallel computing where multiple Boolean circuits can only evaluate parts of the input at the same time. Due to this property, it is possible to run f(.) simultaneously for more than one input allowing us to determine global properties of f(.). This effectively permits an exponentially faster solution of certain problems in comparison to traditional computers. However, one must distinguish between performing such parallel computations and reading out the value of the functions of all inputs.

VTT recently announced completion of Finland’s second quantum computer, which uses 20 superconducting qubits. The work, accomplished in partnership with IQM Quantum Computers, is another step on the roadmap to build a 50-qubit machine by the end of 2024. That means Honeywell is a lesser-known Quantum computing firm with a vested interest in the continued development of the sector and a revenue-generating asset therein. In time though, quantum computing chips like Tunnel … Read More
