Honeywell makes an impressive entrance into the quantum computing race, how quantum computers can be used to stop the next pandemic, and more in this edition of The Quantum Weekly. 

Spotlight Story: A Honey(well) of a Quantum Computer

“Honeywell are claiming that they will be providing access (via the cloud) to the world’s leading quantum computer (by quantum volume) within the next few months. They supported this announcement with the release of this paper. Quantum Volume is a method developed by IBM to attempt to capture, in one number, a true measure of progress in the development of quantum computers, taking into account not only the number of qubits but also the connectivity of these qubits and their reliability (among other factors).” —  The Quantum Daily
