IonQ Releases A New 32-Qubit Trapped-Ion Quantum Computer With Massive Quantum Volume Claims

Last May, I had a discussion with Peter Chapman, CEO of IonQ, a start-up quantum computing company.  Before coming to IonQ, Chapman worked for Amazon, where he was responsible for all the technical complexities of Amazon Prime.  IonQ had accomplished a lot in the twelve months that Chapman had been at the helm, so I was looking forward to talking to him. 

My biggest surprise during that discussion was that IonQ was simultaneously working on its next three generations of its trapped-ion quantum computers – 5th, 6th, and 7th generations. 

In a recent follow-up with Chapman, including Chris Monroe, IonQ’s Co-founder and Chief Scientist, we discussed IonQ’s release of its 5th generation quantum hardware.  Keep in mind that the 6th and 7th generations are still in development. Chapman said that each generation would be smaller and more powerful than its predecessor when released.  Although he

The Best Photos From Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty Volume 2 Show

Rihanna may have just pulled off her greatest magic trick yet: offering a second installment of her escapist, inclusive, and fiercely sexy lingerie show . . . and doing so safely during a global pandemic. On Oct. 2, Amazon Prime Video subscribers will be able to stream Savage x Fenty Volume 2, a thrilling visual event consisting of choreographed moments and music performances, as well as traditional runway walks.

Within the show were various vignettes, including an Avatar-like nature scene in which Rihanna emerges from a supersized flower. In another moment, Bella Hadid, Demi Moore, Indya Moore, and many others wear sleek, all-black lingerie, which is contrasted by the appearance of Normani in a white bridal look. The show’s choreographer, Parris Goebel, also performed during a high-tech moment involving projections of cursive text.

In fact, Parris earned an outstanding choreography Emmy nomination for her work in last year’s Savage

Trapped-ion quantum computer sets new mark for quantum volume

On Thursday, the startup IonQ announced that the next generation of its ion-trap quantum computer was ready for use. The new machine marks a major jump for the company, going from 11 qubits up to 32. While this still trails the offerings of companies that are using superconducting qubits, the high fidelity of the trapped ions makes them far less prone to errors and far easier to link into complex configurations. So, by at least one measure of performance, this is the most powerful quantum computer yet made.

Perhaps more significantly, IonQ’s CEO told Ars that it expects to be able to double the number of qubits every eight months for the next few years, meaning its hardware should consistently outperform classical computers within two years.

Tech, cyclical ETFs sell off on heavy volume. What to watch now

The reopening trade is getting riskier.

That’s what Dave Nadig, chief investment officer and director of research at ETF Trends and ETF Database, told CNBC’s “ETF Edge” on Monday as cyclically oriented stocks and some popular technology plays led the broad market lower on heavy selling volume.

Exchange-traded funds tracking cyclical stocks, or equities that tend to mirror the overall economy’s successes and struggles, were starved for gains in Monday’s trading session. The PHLX Oil Service Fund, the SPDR S&P Metals & Mining ETF (XME), the U.S. Global Jets ETF (JETS) and the SPDR S&P Bank ETF (KBE) lost 5% to 7% in market value.

“The reopening is fizzling,” Nadig said in response to the action. “We’re starting to bring some reality back to some of these names that may have run too long.”

Worse yet for investors, the weakness may need more time to play out, he said.

“We’ve
