Among the potential uses of optic hardware and quantum computing, there is chemical simulation. Being exponentially faster than their classical counterparts, quantum computing gives hope about drug development and other chemical processes. This article is not for experienced quantum researchers. It is an introduction to motivate boys and girls to…

Useful things beyond the two hypes

A recent controversial paper tried to define a new formalism for deep learning in terms of quantum fields. Indeed, qubits are described naively as a state between zero and one, and each node of a neural network, similarly is a value between zero and one meaning probability or something alike…

More Machine learning and less chunky hardware

If you work or are interested in science, probably have seen the meme below. The article was written in 1992 and I can imagine that this issue has only worsened over time. A screenshot of one of the major publishers of scientific articles talking…

Moving from buzzwords innovation to need centered innovation

It is clear that our society has become innovation seeker. However, generally we see incremental innovation. Namely, <<buzzword>> (e.g. machine learning, quantum computing, blockchain…) used in a specific domain… bam! …

Harnessing the power of machine learning with Open Source tools for drug discovery

Proteins, made up of chains of amino acids, are the building blocks of life, drug discovery tasks generally include predicting protein folding, docking, and interactions. This has several applications from vaccines to other kinds of drugs especially for neurodegenerative diseases, and material science. As in other fields, biotech, biology, and…

“Nature isn’t classical, dammit, and if you want to make a simulation of nature, you’d better make it quantum mechanical. “

Richard Feynman

Quantum computing will be the future in computing at least in some fields as chemistry simulation and options prediction. …
