Is Quantum Computing Real or Just Vaporware?

The smallest unit of matter is an atom. It’s also where things start to get really weird. More than 99.99% of the atom’s mass is the nucleus. If the nucleus were the size of a car, all the nothingness around the atom would be about the size of the State of Utah, a place where […]

The Definition of Quantum Everything

In an earlier article, we talked about 10 companies working on quantum computing and promised our lovely readers a follow-up article on companies working on “quantum cryptography” and/or “quantum encryption”. As we sat down to write that article, we realized that we had no idea what quantum cryptography actually was. In fact, we don’t even […]

Has Google Finally Achieved Quantum Supremacy?

If you were a Mexican girl who was born the day Google debuted their IPO, you’d have celebrated your quinceañera this past summer. If you bought some shares in Google around the time of the IPO as we did, you’d be up +2,219% on your investment. If at the time you bought those shares you were broke […]

How Quantum Computing Software Gets Built

Quantum computing is kind of like your middle-aged alcoholic uncle who’s still waiting for his career in the major leagues to take off. Every time you talk to him, he’s almost managed to get that big break which is just around the corner. Even though you really wish it would finally get here, you’re kind of tired of […]

6 Quantum Computing Companies to Watch

One of the many problems we face with quantum computing, aside from getting it to work in the first place, is to prove that it’s actually doing quantum computing. In other words, we’re trying to make quantum computing “work” right now but we don’t know how to tell if it’s done something quantum because we […]

10 Quantum Computing Startups Getting Funded in 2018

If we had to pick the single most Sci-Fi sounding technology we’ve ever written about, it would probably be a toss-up between Kernel’s brain chips and quantum computing in general. Renowned physicist David Deutsche says that “quantum computation will be the first technology that allows useful tasks to be performed in collaboration between parallel universes,” a […]

Why Post-quantum Cryptography is Important Today

“Religious wars are basically people killing each other over who has the better imaginary friend” Napoleon once quipped, and no matter which God you worship, you should be able to find a bit of humor in that statement. Regardless of the reason for wars, they continue to be fought. Today’s wars not only take place […]

Investing in Quantum Computing with D-Wave

If your job is to provide insights on how to invest in disruptive technologies like we do here at Nanalyze, then it’s inevitable that you’ll be asked about what investments to make in any number of situations. These types of questions open up ginormous cans of worms. For example, a common question we get is “would […]

Quantum Computers vs. Supercomputers vs. Mainframes

There has been a great deal of talk lately about supremacy. It’s been all over the news causing people in cities around the nation to become overwhelmed with fear. Are we on the cusp of an event that will forever change the course of our great nation, and affect nearly everyone on planet earth? We’re […]

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Quantum Computing

We talked recently about how the possibility of artificial intelligence creating the world’s next trillionaire would only be realized if some company provided one or more of the following; AI hardware, AI software, or AI as a Service (or as we’ve decided to coin it, AAS). Someone said recently that the worst AI algorithm can become […]
