Hewlett Packard Labs sets its sights on emerging quantum computing technologies

With the right tools, future generations of scientists, engineers and artists will be able to develop technologies that change the way society functions.

Quantum computing, which uses quantum mechanics to achieve computing power exponentially above traditional computing capabilities, is one of these emerging innovations, with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. tools to do the job.

“You think about the opportunities you’re creating — you make these systems and you develop these great products, and then you think, ‘Phew, it doesn’t get any better than that,'” said Kirk Bresniker (pictured), chief architect at Hewlett Packard Labs. “And then as an engineer you remind yourself, ‘But wait, you actually have to, right?'”

Bresniker spoke to CUBE’s industry analysts John Furrier and Paul Gillin Bee SC22, during an exclusive broadcast on theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s live streaming studio. They discussed the possibilities of quantum computing, the challenges of quantum computing development, and what lies ahead for Hewlett Packard Labs. (*Disclosure below.)

Navigating quantum roadblocks

Even with its vast capabilities, harnessing quantum computing has been a problem since it was first conceived more than 30 years ago. According to Bresniker, low-level technology has historically been one of the biggest holding back quantum computing from its full potential.

“You can improve something every day, and if you don’t know where the bar is, you never know if you’re going to be good enough,” he said. “I think part of the approach we’d like to understand is can we start with the problem, the thing we want to solve, and then figure out what’s the tailored combination of classic supercomputing, advanced AI accelerators, new quantum possibilities.”

Going forward, HPE aims to play a leading role in the quantum computing market and recently invested in startup IonQ to ensure that happens. The company sees a future where HPE customers can select quantum accelerators as easily as any other type of computing power and use quantum computing as-a-service.

According to Bresniker, the initial focus for Hewlett Packard Labs is to diversify the application of new computational approaches to demonstrate their capabilities and potential. The second “is that edge-to-exascale workflow, I need to be able to leverage all those compute and data resources. I need to be aware of the energy implications of moving data, of doing calculations and finding all that, while still maintaining security and privacy solutions.
