Honeywell Quantum Solutions And Cambridge Quantum Computing Merge With Go-Public In Mind

Quantum computing just got more interesting today.

Today, Honeywell Quantum Solutions (HQS) announced it is being spun off from Honeywell International in a planned merger with Cambridge Quantum Computing. We believe the combined company could go public by as soon as the end of the year. IonQ, a 2015 quantum computing startup, recently announced it will be going public. The quantum market is hot and the HQS-CQC merger could be a big opportunity.

HQS began in 2018 as a business unit of Honeywell International, a $32 billion conglomerate. Honeywell operates in aerospace, building technology, performance

A Quantum Leap for Quantum Computing

UC Riverside will lead collaborative effort at developing scalable quantum computers.

The University of California, Riverside, has won a University of California Multicampus-National Lab Collaborative Research and Training Award of $3.75 million that will allow the campus to focus on enabling scalable quantum computing.

Quantum computers are expected to greatly outperform the most powerful conventional computers on certain tasks, such as modeling complex chemical processes, finding large prime numbers, and designing new molecules that have applications in medicine.

These computers store quantum information in the form of quantum bits, or qubits — quantum systems that can exist in two

IBM just solved this quantum computing problem 120 times faster than previously possible

Using a combination of tweaked algorithms, improved control systems and a new quantum service called Qiskit Runtime, IBM researchers have managed to resolve a quantum problem 120 times faster than the previous time they gave it a go. 

Back in 2017, Big Blue announced that, equipped with a seven-qubit quantum processor, its researchers had successfully simulated the behavior of a small molecule called lithium hydride (LiH). At the time, the operation took 45 days. Now, four years later, the IBM Quantum team has announced that the same problem was solved in only nine hours

The simulation was run entirely

Biden’s $180 Billion R&D Plan Prioritizes Key Areas Such As Chips, Quantum Computing

As part of his recently unveiled $2 trillion infrastructure investment plan, President Joe Biden said his administration would commit $180 billion to “R&D and industries of the future.” Among the sectors earmarked for the money are advanced computing, which includes quantum computers, as well as semiconductor design and manufacturing.

These have become central to the U.S.’s technological rivalry with China, which sees quantum computing and specialized chips powering artificial intelligence applications as once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to leapfrog America in high tech innovation. Former Google CEO and billionaire Eric
