There are a number of useful websites that allow users to exchange relevant information to others interested in the quantum computing field. This section provides a description and links to those websites.
NISQ Computing Newsletter
The NISQ Computing Newsletter is a curated digest of the latest preprints that are impacting the field of near-term quantum computing. It features exclusively experiments that advance the field of applied quantum computing in existing hardware, or theoretical/engineering tightly connected to experimental realization in the near term. The newsletter is updated on a monthly basis and is provided by the Research Institute for Advanced Computer Science (RIACS), a joint collaboration between the Universities Space Research Association (USRA) and the NASA Ames Research Center.
Quantiki is a social platform for researchers in quantum computing. It includes a number of academic position postings, listings of some upcoming conferences, and abstracts of journal articles.
Quantum for Quants
Quantum computers have the potential to provide an entirely different approach to solving very hard finance problems. Quantumforquants.org has been created to foster education, discussion, and collaboration to advance identification and understanding of solutions to open industry problems.
Quantum Computing Stack Exchange
The Quantum Computing Stack Exchange provides a forum for engineers, scientists, programmers, and computing professionals interested in quantum computing to ask questions about various quantum computing topics and receive answers.
Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C)
The Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C), which aims to enable and grow the U.S. quantum industry and associated supply chain, has over 100 participants, including the Quantum Computing Report. QED-C brings industry together to identify high impact applications and gaps in the enabling technologies, standards, and “quantum ready” workforce needed to realize those applications. QED-C also provides an industry voice to the government agencies that have a role in advancing quantum information science and technology.
Quantum Industry Coalition
The Quantum Industry Coalition is a lobbying group for the quantum industry in the United States. Their members range from start-up companies to the Fortune 100 that build hardware, write software, and develop applications. The coalition provides the U.S. quantum industry with a voice to educate members of the U.S. government about the importance of quantum R&D and advocate for U.S. quantum leadership.
European Union Quantum Flagship and AQTION Research Project
The Quantum Flagship is a large-scale initiative funded at the 1b € level on a 10 years timescale. It consists in a coherent set of research and innovation projects selected through a thorough peer-review process. Calls for projects are issued based on the Flagship’s Strategic Research Agenda, thus ensuring that all actors are aligned in the pursue of the Flagship’s goals. The goal is to consolidate and expand European scientific leadership and excellence in this research area, to kick-start a competitive European industry in Quantum Technologies and to make Europe a dynamic and attractive region for innovative research, business and investments in this field. The AQTION research project funded by the Quantum Flagship is working to develop a scalable ion trap quantum computer for Europe that can outperform today’s classical supercomputers.
