It’s the weekend – time to get cozy and fire up the latest binge-worthy show on Netflix. You start up Netflix and see the dreaded loading wheel. You’re not sure how long it’ll spin – 5 seconds or 15 seconds – but it’s enough to get under your skin. This lag is actually Netflix connecting to the cloud, so it can pull up the selected show. Just about everything is connected via the cloud, but as the Internet of Things keeps growing, it puts more stress on the cloud, causing bigger latency issues. So how do we get faster speeds? Enter edge computing. What is edge computing? Simply put, it brings the computation and data storage closer to devices that need them. Typically, IoT devices rely on a central location that could be located thousands of miles away. Edge computing moves storage and servers closer to where the data is. This...

Nvidia Launches cuQuantum; Dips a Toe in Quantum Computing

ibm quantum interior
Yesterday Nvidia officially dipped a toe into quantum computing with the launch of cuQuantum SDK, a development platform for simulating quantum circuits on GPU-accelerated systems. As Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang emphasized in his keynote, Nvidia doesn’t plan to build quantum computers, but thinks GPU-accelerated platforms are the best systems for quantum circuit and algorithm development and testing. As a proof point, Nvidia reported it collaborated with Caltech to develop “a state-of-the-art quantum circuit simulator with cuQuantum running on NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs. It generated a sample from a full-circuit simulation of the Google Sycamore circuit in 9.3 minutes on Selene, a task that 18 months ago experts thought would take days using millions of CPU cores.” There has been a steady proliferation of companies and services in the young...
