Australia Installs First Room-Temperature Diamond Quantum Computer

Quantum computing is an upcoming acceleration aiding classical computational methods to achieve monumental speed-ups at a few select problems. Unlike classical computers, quantum systems usually require sub-ambient cooling to make them work. At Quantum Brilliance, an Australian-Germany startup company, researchers have been developing quantum accelerators based on diamonds. Today, we got the world's first installation of room-temperature on-premises quantum computers at Australia's Pawsey Supercomputing Centre. While we don't have much information about the computational capability of the system, we know that it is paired with HPE Setonix, Pawsey's HPE Cray EX supercomputer.

In a brief YouTube video shared by Pawsey, it is highlighted that the benefits of using quantum accelerators are real, and they are figuring out ways to integrate it with the center's hardware and software stack for better usage. Meanwhile, Quantum Brilliance diamond accelerators are still a black box of some sort as the technology is known to the startup and its collaborating Australian universities. All we know is that the company is harnessing nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center in diamonds, which supposedly have the longest coherence time of any room temperature quantum state. This translates to a qubit that can operate anywhere a classical computer can.

I remember the recent news about another wonder CPU that was available only on brochures...

Wondering when they will start to use quantum computers for something meaningful. :rolleyes:

... like transforming our economy from profit oriented to ecological oriented, supporting/replacing our dumb politicians or at least use them to filter out cheaters in online games.

That's, dare I say the fallacy - giving powerful tools to powerful people and expecting the former to be used for the good of mankind.

Edit: looking at their photos I couldn't help but to think of

Yea it depends in what hands the tech gets. Evil can do more evil, but good can do awesome, see Elon Musk & StarLink.

P.S.: ohh the guy from The Big Sick (Kumail Nanjiani). Pretty good movie. :)

Have we managed to create anything of value from quantum computing yet or are we still in proof of concept?

They are trying to make the qbit the new transistor but that will never happen.
Shiny gimmick that all big ballers participate so they can boost their portfolio but in reality it's significant as a fart in a tornado.

Judging by the quality of the pictures, this is either vaporware or it WILL change the world. Why? Because they have absolutely ZERO marketing and PR.

You haven't seen 'Silicon Valley'? Oooh!

If they can do what they claim, it's huge.

Harnessing the qbit makes one a step closer to what many perceive as G.O. single D.

For real.

What’s the deal.

Im gonna guess that no actual science has happened on a quantum system beyond validation of some results, as the error rate is still to high to be useful from what I understand.

all specualtion aside, better off waiting to 'hear' about performance praises or a crapton of issues.

This is special cause the room temperature in Australia is around 40C

That's like standing in some ones mouth :(

I hate the heat about as much as I hate the cold lol..

I wonder what the bios looks like on this thing.

I wish. I'm sitting in my house here on the NSW South Coast and it's 14C inside at the moment.

Wealth doesn't turn someone into becomming evil, it's greed & insulation (rich bubble). ;)
There are quite some good billionaires out there, but they choose to contribute anonymously.

I find results of the poll interesting. People are being honest is seems.

I voted yes as room temp quantum computing is an amazing advance that should radically change quantum computers as the tech advances.

I think we're all burned out on the never ending press releases of quantum computers that are sealed black boxes that are never proven to actually BE quantum computers of any kind.
