Hardware Initiative at Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab

Posted by Hartmut Neven, Director of Engineering

The Quantum Artificial Intelligence team at Google is launching a hardware initiative to design and build new quantum information processors based on superconducting electronics. We are pleased to announce that John Martinis and his team at UC Santa Barbara will join Google in this initiative. John and his group have made great strides in building superconducting quantum electronic components of very high fidelity. He recently was awarded the London Prize recognizing him for his pioneering advances in quantum control and quantum information processing. With an integrated hardware group the Quantum AI team will now be able to implement and test new designs for quantum optimization and inference processors based on recent theoretical insights as well as our learnings from the D-Wave quantum annealing architecture. We will continue to collaborate with D-Wave scientists and to experiment with the “Vesuvius” machine at NASA Ames which will be upgraded to a 1000 qubit “Washington” processor.

DevArt: Exploring the connection between science and art

This summer, London’s Barbican Centre (http://goo.gl/0Zt6oZ) will explore the impact of technology on art, as well as the creative possibilities offered by technology through digital media, with the Digital Revolution exhibit (http://goo.gl/aL3HsO).  

A part of the exhibit is DevArt, a collaboration between Google and the Barbican, that further explores the theme of technology’s inspiration on art through a competition of creative coding in which participants use technology as a canvas.

The winner’s creation will be exhibited alongside commissioned interactive artists Karsten Schmidt, Zach Lieberman, and duo Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet (http://goo.gl/Y29UeI), each creating a unique installation in the DevArt section of the Digital Revolution exhibition.

To submit your own project and see the artists’ creative process, visit g.co/devart.

To learn more, read the full announcement on the Official Google Blog http://goo.gl/E4WbCN.

Chrome has had a bug for a while where it hangs on startup, requiring a refresh to actually load the startup page. (Not just me, many others have reported this.) Has anyone seen a fix? I'm about ready to bail on Chrome because of this.

The memo that started Microsoft Research - very interesting. I've heard other major companies poo-poo the MSR model, but none of them match MSR in terms of the breadth and depth of new, risk-taking research.

I see no way to post to... or to join... or to request an invitation to... the Google Mobile Help Forum of Google Groups. Am I missing something obvious?

No - can you get me one?? I've so far refrained from bugging Google employees directly... but I'm anxious to give it a try.
