UNSW Associate Professor Paul Thomas takes quantum computing and turns it into art. Here he speaks about "Quantum Consciousness", which is based on the work being done by Professor Andrea Morello at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Computer Technology at UNSW.
CBA’s $10 million pledge to support UNSW's quantum computing research sends a powerful message about industry collaboration on world-leading Australian innovation, and builds on major government investment announced this week.
With UNSW's breakthroughs in quantum computing, Australia has been given a second chance to lead a computer revolution. The question is, will we take it, or let it slip from our grasp? writes Mark Hoffman.
Australian engineers have proven – with the highest score ever obtained – that a quantum version of computer code can be written and manipulated using two quantum bits in a silicon microchip, removing any doubt silicon can be the foundation for a powerful quantum computer.
The world’s first calculation using two quantum bits in silicon has been demonstrated by a team of engineers at UNSW Australia. The manufacturing techniques used are the same as those employed in today’s silicon chip industry, opening the way to ultra-powerful quantum computers.
