Microsoft Quantum and collaborators prove shallow quantum circuits provide an exponential advantage 

We know that Shor’s algorithm can factor integers on a quantum computer exponentially faster than any known classical algorithm, and that there are problems, such as the simulation of physical systems as posed by Richard Feynman in the 1980s, that quantum computers can solve that would take classical computers more than the lifetime of the...Read more

Microsoft Quantum collaborates with Willis Towers Watson to transform risk-management solutions 

  Willis Towers Watson (NASDAQ: WLTW)—a leading global advisory, broking, and solutions company—has long used complex mathematical models to deliver great results for clients and turn risk into growth. However, some problems are still so challenging that they remain intractable with even the most advanced contemporary computational solutions. Because of that, Willis Towers Watson has...Read more
