cleveland clinic

Cleveland Clinic pre-study

Cleveland Clinic and IBM have announced a landmark 10-year partnership based around quantum computing. This is designed to speed up discovery in healthcare and life sciences. The basis of the partnership is that IBM plans to install its first private-sector, on-premises quantum computing system in the U.S. at Cleveland Clinic. In the future, Cleveland Clinic… Read More »Cleveland Clinic pre-study

quantum chemistry

Quantum Chemistry

The initial applications of quantum computing in chemistry are likely to be around helping us to better understand molecules and how they behave. Ultimately, we want to be able to simulate the molecular origins of life—but at present, there are just too many possible options. Quantum computing will allow us to explore more options in… Read More »Quantum Chemistry

Quantum Computing and Metagenomics

It is likely that quantum computing may be helpful in DNA sequencing, where making comparisons with the database is computationally heavy. However, there are several possible steps in the pipeline. The question is where to focus for maximum effect: The first step will be to use machine learning to speed up the process. Contact –… Read More »Quantum Computing and Metagenomics

Quantum Spectroscopy

Quantum technology could also revolutionise spectroscopy.  Light can provide information about medically relevant quantities not readily detectable by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), ultrasound or X-rays, such as tissue oxygenation linked to stroke or heart attacks. This project is looking at optical imaging at tissue depths unreachable by other optical methods. This is achieved by ultrasound… Read More »Quantum Spectroscopy

AI for Quantum Sensors

As quantum sensors are developed, and provide ever-larger volumes of information, we will need to harness artificial intelligence (AI) to help us to understand and interpret their output. The use of individual photons will provide significantly more information. Deep learning is likely to be needed to separate signals from noise. Precision medicine is more likely… Read More »AI for Quantum Sensors

quantum sensors

Quantum Sensors

The use of quantum technology in sensors will increase the potential information content, by enabling improved proximity, better sensitivity and higher resolution. This will enable ready access to precision health in clinics. Quantum sensors will be smaller, enabling higher spatial resolution, and more capable, giving better sensitivity and more information. Finally, they will also be… Read More »Quantum Sensors

Quantum microscopy

Quantum Microscopy and Radiology

Quantum technology depends on photons rather than electrons—which means light. The development of quantum technology therefore opens up new opportunities in imaging. The main opportunity is for higher resolution, deeper and faster imaging. However, this is not yet commercially available at single photon resolution in the infrared. The potential game-changer in this area would be… Read More »Quantum Microscopy and Radiology

protein folding

Quantum Computing and Protein Folding 

Protein folding is a complex computational problem because of the vast number of ways a specific protein can be folded. Levinthal’s paradox states that going through the number of foldings one by one, looking for the correct folding, would take longer than the universe’s age, yet proteins fold correctly in our cells in microseconds. It may be possible… Read More »Quantum Computing and Protein Folding
