From the University of Chicago News, Sept. 2, 2021: The National Science Foundation is funding a new quantum institute at the University of Chicago that will collaborate with other Chicago-based quantum research and industry partners like Fermilab. The new institute will aim to harness the sensitivities of quantum systems and use those to advance quantum studies in biology.
From L’Embarque (France), June 17, 2021: The MLCommons consortium which Fermilab is a part of, announced a new benchmark that defines targets in a variety of use cases implementing “compact” (tiny) neural networks typically weighing 100 KB, or even less.
From Science Magazine, June 17, 2021: Fermilab is part of the research group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison which has found evidence that computer errors are correlated across an entire superconducting quantum computing chip — highlighting a problem that must be acknowledged and addressed in the quest for fault-tolerant quantum computers.
To fully realize the potential of quantum computing, scientists must start with the basics: developing step-by-step procedures, or algorithms, for quantum computers to perform simple tasks. A Fermilab scientist has done just that, announcing two new algorithms that build upon existing work in the field to further diversify the types of problems quantum computers can solve.
From Vanity Fair, March 18, 2021: April is national STEM month in Italy. and Fermilab’s Anna Grasselino is highlighted as a role model for young women in pursuit of a career in STEM.
From La Nazione Pisa, March 15, 2021: The center directed by Fermilab’s Anna Grassellino has the task of developing a state-of-the-art quantum computer with unprecedented performances based on superconducting technologies.
From La Nazione, March 8, 2021: Fermilab’s Anna Grassellino will inaugurate second semester teaching at the University of Pisa at 4 pm on Wednesday 10 March, live streaming on the social channels of the Pisa University.
From Donne e Scienza, Feb. 5, 2021: In this interview, Fermilab scientist Anna Grassellino talks about quantum computing, her career trajectory, and women and girls in STEM.
From iO Donna, Feb. 5, 2021: In this Q&A, Fermilab scientist Anna Grassellino discusses quantum computing, the weight of heading SQMS’ ambitious aim and how she hopes she serves as an example for girls as a woman in science.
From Interesting Engineering, Jan. 5, 2021: A recent breakthroughs in transmitting, storing, and manipulating quantum information have convinced some physicists that a simple proof of principle for a quantum network is imminent. In 2017, a number of institutions partnered with Fermilab to begin constructing a quantum network hosted at Fermilab.
