The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: ORNL Distinguished Scientist Travis Humble on Coupling Classical and Quantum Computing

Oak Ridge National Lab’s Travis Humble has worked at the headwaters of quantum computing research for years. In this interview, he talks about his particular areas of interest, including integration of quantum computing with classical HPC systems.  “We’ve already recognized that we can accelerate solving scientific applications using quantum computers,” he says. “These demonstrations are just early examples of how we expect quantum computers can take us to the most challenging problems for scientific discovery.”

In This Update…. From the HPC User Forum Steering Committee

By Steve Conway and Thomas Gerard

After the global pandemic forced Hyperion Research to cancel the April 2020 HPC User Forum planned for Princeton, New Jersey, we decided to reach out to the HPC community in another way — by publishing a series of interviews with leading members of the worldwide HPC community. Our hope is that these seasoned leaders’ perspectives on HPC’s past, present

The Technology 202: Trump administration unveils $1 billion quantum and artificial intelligence initiative

The announcement is a shot across the bow in the broader tech race with China – and seems positioned to be a feather in Trump’s cap during the week of the Republican National Convention. 

Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and senior adviser who is speaking at the convention this week, credited Trump with this “defining achievement as we continue to shape and prepare this great Nation for excellence in the industries of the future.” 

A significant chunk of the funding which includes $300 million in contributions from academia and industry will go toward establishing new centers focused on research in quantum within five of the Department of Energy labs.  The administration is also awarding $140 million toward seven National Science Foundation-led institutes focused on artificial intelligence, which will be housed at colleges including the University of Texas at Austin, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The investments

First Quantum advances local employment, skills development drive in Zambia

Highlighting the success of copper, gold and zinc miner First Quantum Minerals (FQM) in actively recruiting locals from within the North-Western province in Zambia, its Kansanshi mine employed 72 locals in July.

The mine is also investing in the training of the new employees.

The company reports that a comprehensive skills development programme is improving operations in its projects.

Besides creating local employment opportunities, the mine is providing training opportunities for local economic empowerment and an improved skills base.

FQM Kansanshi Foundation social responsibility manager Bruce Lewis says that, through its job centre, FQM is helping people find work through services such as job-hunting programmes and applying for internal vacancies.

He adds that local community members on the mining firm’s database are screened based on attitude, aptitude and against pre-qualification criteria for yearly vocational training opportunities offered through the Kansanshi Foundation to enable them to take on more skilled roles.

Air Force ‘doubles down’ on quantum partnerships and pitch events

Written by

Jackson Barnett

The Air Force continues to link up with academia, industry and other government agencies to pursue the next generation of computing power.

The Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) in Rome, New York, announced Monday it is “doubling down” on partnership and innovation in Quantum Information Science (QIS) by hosting virtual pitch events, including one that runs Tuesday through Thursday. The focus on “game-changing” ideas is being led by the Innovare Advancement Center, an institution that has partnerships with AFRL, other government agencies and private-sector corporations.

The pitch event is the second in recent months through which the military is offering money to support breakthroughs on the computing technology, which could have major impacts on warfare.

“The Air Force is committed to building a quantum information science alliance of principal investigators across academia, industry, and the government to accelerate advancements in this
