A Quick Intro to Quantum Computing

Quantum computing is on the horizon and it’s time to pay attention. Quantum computers operate fundamentally different than classical or standard computers that we use today. While classical computers use 0’s and 1’s, quantum computing uses qubits which can operate in multiple states at the same time. This multistate capability leads to an exponential increase…

Quantum computing versus classical computing

Quantum Computer vs. Classical Computing Classical A classical CPU has a series of registers made each of a line of bits.. A single register can have 8 or 32 bits, but most computers today are 64 bit registers. An eight bit register is capable of holding 256 different binary numbers or 2 to the eighth…

Shout out to Rigetti Computing

Last week I was given the opportunity to view firsthand a quantum computer at Rigetti in Berkeley. Really quite fascinating and extremely complex. Have to hold qubits in a coherent state is an extremely difficult task and I now understand how much pure knowledge and skill go into building a quantum computer. Rigetti recently launched…

Quantum Computing Applications will be here in…

A year ago, it seemed like most articles written about quantum computing talked about useful applications being 10 years (or more) away. 6 months ago we started hearing that quantum computing applications would be here in the next 5 years. Hold onto your hats. This past week Rigetti computing, one of the leaders and quantum…

Quantum Computing: Could a Quantum Blockchain provide Ultimate Security?

By now many of us know the value in promise of blockchain technology. By distributing information across millions of computers and making that data immutable, block chain is now being used in many industries. But can blockchain be the answer to Quantum security? Quantum computers potentially are billion this times faster than standard computing and…

Quantum Computing-Danger Ahead

San Mateo Capital has a keen interest in quantum computing for a lot of reasons, one of which is national security. We’ve been saying for nearly a year that whomever wins the quantum computing race will have the ability to break traditional cybersecurity protocols (like RSA). It’s now time to invest in quantum computing and…

The Quantum Computing Race is On

According to an article in the Japan Times, there is a very high-stakes battle going on between China and the US in the quantum computing world. According to the article, China’s building a $10 billion national laboratory and will put about $200 million a year in research behind it. One of the biggest concerns about…
