Quantum Information Science (QIS) at the intersection of business & strategy

We enable business executives and investors to understand Quantum Information Science, based on rigorous analysis & advisory, explained without the hyperbole and jargon
Our latest proprietary research
QIS Statistics & Analysis

A data set that is looking at all known Quantum Computing researchers and their popularity (measured by Google Search results) reveals that the field is dominated by a few superstart and many silent worker bees. Do QC researchers need to do a better job communicating about their work? Or is it still too early to go public?

Dig into the complete, interactive dataset yourself.

QIS Cognitive Insights

We looked at a combined sentiment and volume analysis for IBM vs Microsoft. It is interesting to note that while IBM still drives more mentions in the press around QC, Microsoft is catching up in volume.

More importantly, Microsoft is getting a lot more positive sentiment, with frequent, high spikes in positive sentiment – each of which is accompanied by a small spike in negative sentiment. This indicates that the unique technology path that Microsoft is pursuing, while having some distractions, is gaining significant positive feedback in the market.

IBM, on the other hand, has barely any spikes – positive or negative – with a very neutral sentiment by the market. Not a good sign for an emerging technology!

  • From shtetl to Forum January 18, 2020
    Today I’m headed to the 50th World Economic Forum in Davos, where on Tuesday I’ll participate in a panel discussion on “The Quantum Potential” with Jeremy O’Brien of PsiQuantum, and will also host an ask-me-anything session about quantum computational supremacy and Google’s claim to have achieved it. I’m well aware that this will be unlike […]
  • How sensitive can a quantum detector be? January 17, 2020
    Measuring the energy of quantum states requires detecting energy changes so exceptionally small they are hard to pick out from background fluctuations, like using only a thermometer to try and work out if someone has blown out a candle in the room you're in. New research presents sensitive quantum thermometry hitting the bounds that nature […]
  • An alternative argument for why women leave STEM: Guest post by Karen Morenz January 16, 2020
    Scott’s preface: Imagine that every time you turned your blog over to a certain topic, you got denounced on Twitter and Reddit as a privileged douchebro, entitled STEMlord, counterrevolutionary bourgeoisie, etc. etc. The sane response would simply be to quit blogging about that topic. But there’s also an insane (or masochistic?) response: the response that […]
  • What's MER? A new way to measure quantum materials January 16, 2020
    Experimental physicists have combined several measurements of quantum materials into one in their ongoing quest to learn more about manipulating and controlling the behavior of them for possible applications. They even coined a term for it -- magneto-elastoresistance, or MER.
  • Quantum physics: Controlled experiment observes self-organized criticality January 16, 2020
    Researchers have observed important characteristics of complex systems in a lab experiment. Their discovery could facilitate the development of quantum technologies.
  • AlphaZero learns to rule the quantum world January 16, 2020
    The chess world was amazed when the computer algorithm AlphaZero learned, after just four hours on its own, to beat the best chess programs built on human expertise. Now a research group has used the very same algorithm to control a quantum computer.
  • Electron spins in slowly moving quantum dots may be controlled by electric fields January 15, 2020
    A new article presents a theoretical analysis of electron spins in moving semiconductor quantum dots, showing how these can be controlled by electric fields in a way that suggests they may be usable as information storage and processing components of quantum computers.
  • Colloidal quantum dot laser diodes are just around the corner January 14, 2020
    Scientists have incorporated meticulously engineered colloidal quantum dots into a new type of light emitting diodes (LEDs) containing an integrated optical resonator, which allows them to function as lasers. These novel, dual-function devices clear the path towards versatile, manufacturing-friendly laser diodes. The technology can potentially revolutionize numerous fields from photonics and optoelectronics to chemical sensing […]
