Quick Recap

IBM doubles down on its 1000 qubit promise for 2023. Google unveils its plans for a commercial scale available machine by 2029. This adds to the PsiQuantum plans we already showed here as well as Honeywell and Fujitsu’s plans. The Goldman Sachs preditions for 5 years to have advantage in financial applications could be truer and truer! Equal1 announces new processor getting us closer to slighltly warmed QPUs and IDQ announces their next generation QKD device.
