Overview on quantum initiatives worldwide

From quantum resources:

Over the last years there has been an exponential increase on investment in quantum technologies worldwide. The global effort for public funding has been boosted. It is an amazing and exciting time of innovation in this new second quantum revolution.

We have summarised the main programs and efforts around the world below. It is not a quantum race, it is a global ecosystem to develop the new quantum technology!

Quantum imaging making personalized medicine a reality

From nature research:

Nanomedicine has opened new horizons for clinicians, making possible novel medical tools and therapies. But how do you safely and accurately work with tools that are 140 times smaller than a red blood cell? How can you see what you’re doing when working at scales smaller than the wavelength of visible light?

Google Engineers Think This 72-Qubit Processor Can Achieve Quantum Supremacy

From Motherboard:

On Monday (3/5/2018), Google researcher Julian Kelly unveiled Bristlecone, the company’s new record-breaking 72-qubit quantum processor, at the annual meeting of the American Physical Society in Los Angeles. Kelly and his colleagues at Google’s Quantum AI lab hope this processor will be the first chip to achieve quantum supremacy, the point at which quantum computers can perform calculations that are beyond the capabilities of even the most advanced supercomputers.
