Prof. Henry Dietz gave the talk, Parallel Bit Pattern Computing (slides, paper preprint), at the Workshop on Computing with Unconventional Technologies (CUT) at the 10th International Green and Sustainable Computing Conference.
Dr. Himanshu Thapliyal and Edgard Munoz-Coreas have a new paper Design of Quantum Computing Circuits published in IEEE IT Professional.
I would like to preface this by saying I am not an expert in quantum computing. I am just a graduate student with degrees in computer engineering and physics exploring quantum computing as a possible career path. As I looked into this, I had to dig through a lot of vague articles with a sort of blind optimism(see above photo). My goal here is to better understand these numerous fantastical claims, and to find some sort of road map to making quantum computing work in practical applications.
KREQC: Kentucky’s Rotationally Emulated Quantum Computer KREQC (pronounced “creek”) is Kentucky’s Rotationally Emulated Quantum Computer. It is a quantum computer that works at room temperature – and it is an open source design, so you can build your own for under $100. It’s not useful as a computer, but it makes a great demonstration of how quantum computation works. You’ve probably heard quite a lot about quantum computing… and understand just a little.
