Cloud-based Quantum Computing: A Growing Assortment of Opportunities for QC Application Developers
Authors: Bob Sorensen, Steve Conway, Alex Norton and Earl Joseph
Publication Date: October 2018
Length: 4 pages
This Quick Take looks at the growing availability of commercial cloud-based quantum computing (QC), supported through either direct access to true QC systems or QC simulators based on traditional digital hardware. In addition to QC hardware, most cloud-based QC providers are also rolling out their own software development environments to help existing and new QC software developers more effectively explore QC programming. The choice of options for potential QC users is growing, and each of the QC providers offers a distinct take on QC architecture and programming.

The AI Hardware Summit: A Recap
Alex Norton, Bob Sorensen, Steve Conway and Earl Joseph
This inaugural, two-day AI Hardware summit held in Mountain View, California, at the Computer History Museum, brought together researchers, vendors, and users to explore the development of the AI ecosystem from a hardware perspective. Large companies, startups, and analysts joined to hear over 30 speakers and roundtables. Although the overall theme was all AI hardware, many of the presentations focused on AI processors and the work that is being done to design hardware to further the development of the evolving and growing field of AI, machine learning, and deep learning.
