Microsoft is contributing to a revolutionary idea, a topological-based new coding language for creating the quantum computing apps of the future.
Microsoft’s Studio Q (Quantum), a specially funded lab for full stack development, announced a new approach based on topological math concepts. The foundation of quantum computation lies in the core building blocks of “qubits.” Their team offers an improved concept of “topological qubits.”
What are Typological Qubits?
Theoretical topology research has been 20 years in the making, and Michael Freedman led it. He is a theoretical mathematician that won the Fields Medal, the highest honor in the field of mathematics for his work on the topological phases of matter and 4D manifold work.
Topological math has been described by others in the field of mathematics as the “modern geometry.” The answers that lie within could solve the problem of inconsistent and unstable qubits. Previously, the smallest disturbance could alter their state and make their computing power null.
The Studio Q team has recruited the leading researchers in various fields, to include a full spectrum of scientists ranging from theoretical physicists, computer scientists, and material scientists, among others. This should help provide a comprehensive full stack development perspective for the new programming language. The potential for mind-boggling computation, processes thought to take a lifetime, could now be more easily solved.
Quantum Coding Language and Simulation
The new programming language works with the current Visual Studio at Microsoft’s Ignite Conference. Coders are asked to take a look at the code and take part of the quantum simulation process. Stirring the pot, inspiring coders to start thinking about how this new coding language will build new apps could help open new paths and ideas for the utilization of quantum computing once this gets fully developed.
As we look into the future, Microsoft continues its legacy of revolutionizing computing power by providing the first usable language to inspire and change the world.
“For the first time in 70 years we’re looking at a way to build a computing system that is just completely different,” says Craig Mundie from Microsoft. “It’s not an incremental tune-up or improvement. It’s a qualitatively different thing.”
