Intel Delivers 17-Qubit Quantum Chip to European Research Partner

As a substrate of quantum computing, scientists have been working with silicon laced diamonds, on the other hand for technology, Microsoft already in the path of creating a new "coding language", and Google is already looking for the solutions of cloud-based. It also underscores the importance of material science and semiconductor manufacturing in realizing the promise of quantum computing.

There are still many additional hurdles that need to be overcome before this chip can be used in a computational setting, though, which is why Intel has sent it to QuTech, a company partnered with the Technical University in Delft, the Netherlands.

However, building large-scale, accurate quantum computers is a challenge; one of which is producing heterogenous, stable qubits. The company says that it used a unique design to achieve improved yield and chip performance. It consists of 17 qubits - the basic building blocks of quantum computing. This fragility requires them to operate at about 20 millikelvin - 250 times colder than deep space, and this extreme operating environment makes the packaging of qubits key to their performance and function. This quantum computing is a great level of revolution in the field of technology ahead, and it will soon be here before you might think. And compared to wirebonded processors, a scalable interconnect scheme allows for 10 to 100 times more signals into and out of the chip. In the unboxing video from QuTech's Leo DiCarlo and Intel's Dave Michalak, the duo report that the next step is to "test and characterize all the qubits in the device [to assess] how each performs individually and also how they all perform together when they're entangled".

Wiggins inks contract extension with Timberwolves
Andrew Wiggins has signed a "multi-year contract extension" with the Minnesota Timberwolves , the team announced on Wednesday. Wiggins and the Wolves have been expected to agree to terms on this deal for quite some time, and now it's official.

"Our quantum research has progressed to the point where our partner QuTech is simulating quantum algorithm workloads, and Intel is fabricating qubit test chips on regular basis", said Intel Labs MD Dr Michael Mayberry.

Intel's collaborative relationship with QuTech to accelerate advancements in quantum computing began in 2015. The collaboration spans the entire quantum system - or "stack" - from qubit devices to the hardware and software architecture required to control these devices as well as quantum applications. "This work will allow us to uncover new insights in quantum computing that will shape the next stage of development". This superconducting is chip is a big step forward not only because it houses 17 qubits, but because its packaging has been specced to withstand those ultra-low temperatures. Superconducting qubits are incorporated into its newest test chip, but the company has also been working on an alternative type called spin qubit in silicon, similar to a single electron transistor in a magnetic field. Then there's Rigetti Computing Inc., which said in March that it has raised $64 million and expects to demonstrate a machine next year that will outperform the world's largest supercomputers in some tasks. But Intel said it's now making them regularly.
