Amazon's quantum computing service has been integrated with PennyLane to speed up the development of quantum-hybrid algorithms. It also has a new tensor network simulator that supports 50 qubits.
A team of researchers at Microsoft Quantum showed that a quartic speed up for unstructured problems with quantum algorithms is the limit and also proved an age-old conjecture about a graph property.
For his contributions to the field of quantum Monte Carlo algorithms, Dr. Matthias Troyer received the most valuable German prize in the field—the Hamburg Prize for Theoretical Physics.
