march event

hello qubiteers!

we are happy to announce march’s community meetup, which will be held on march 7th in soluto’s offices on rothschild 39, tel aviv.

in this event, we will present the result of our first survey of the quantum information space in israel, and provide a quick overview of what’s happening in labs around the country.

we are also very pleased to have professor ron folman from the atom chip lab at ben gurion university and eden shochat from aleph join us for a short q&a session on the prospects and challenges of quantum information systems.

please let us know what questions you would like asked by posting or voting on them here.

as usual, there will be time for networking and chit-chat. drinks and snacks will be graciously provided by soluto.

event schedule
19:00mapping the quantum information space in israel – ronen raz
19:45q&a session – professor ron folman, eden shochat

this event is open to anyone but space is limited, so sign up early and feel free to invite those who want to join the revolution.

hope to see you there!

welcome to qubit – the israeli quantum computing community

what are quantum computers ?

quantum computing refers to an emerging paradigm for information processing that is based on the ideas of quantum mechanics and the interconnectedness of all things.

the principles of quantum mechanics describe a world where all things are fundamentally interconnected, and every particle of a system is continuously affecting and being affected by all other particles. this means that every particle we add to a system multiplies the complexity of the entire system.

quantum computers provide a way to store, change, and retrieve information from an interconnected system of particles. these systems were theorized in the 1970s and first successfully implemented in the late 1990s. by manipulating matter and energy with extreme precision, they allow us to store and process information, and exploit the interconnectedness of the information stored to create very complex data structures that are impossible, even in theory, to create in our current “classical” information systems.

quantum computers are still very limited – the amount of information that can be stored is small and processing is very unstable and prone to errors. usage of quantum computing is still confined almost entirely to academic research, where computation is mostly carried out to test the efficiency and validity of the machines.

the rate of progress, however, is significant. the size of the systems is growing with the same order of magnitude as their classical counterparts, obeying a growth rate that is similar to that of moore’s law of doubling in size roughly every two years. the huge difference is that when the size of a quantum system is doubled, it’s power is not merely doubled (as in classical systems) but is multiplied by itself (owing to that interconnectedness mentioned earlier). if the current rate of progress continues, we can expect quantum information systems to provide, within 10 to 15 years, significant, perhaps revolutionary advances in literally every aspect of human life.

what is the community is about ?

our goal is to connect people from different disciplines interesting in quantum information technology, as a way to boost efforts in the field in israel

our activity is around these areas:

1. meetups and conferences – monthly physical events, where we will offer a chance for people to interact and learn about different aspects of quantum technology.

2. content and education – multidisciplinary training courses and seminars in partnership with academic institutes, a local podcast in hebrew, and updated mapping of the israeliquantum information ecosystem.

3. social media and online communication – presence on facebook and telegram, providing access to information and content, as well as a place for discourse.

Our first meetup

We are happy to invite you to our community’s first meetup, which will be held at Google’s new campus on January 10th!

The meetup is intended to connect between engineers, entrepreneurs, scientists, and enthusiasts.

places are limited so sign up early!
