New Quipper Language is Like Java for Quantum Computers

Over at NewScientist, Sophie Hebden writes that a quantum computing now has its first practical, high-level programming language. And while today’s devices are not ready for most practical applications, the new Quipper language could guide the design of future machines and make them easier to program when they do arrive. Now Peter Selinger of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada, and colleagues have brought the field up to speed by creating Quipper, the first high-level quantum...

Student Cluster Teams Break Records at ISC’13

At the 2013 International Student Cluster Challenge (ISC’13), the team from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), China, won the Best Linpack award and set a new record with 8.455 Tflops. The team from the Centre for High Performance Computing of South Africa won the Overall Best award, and the team from Tsinghua University ranked second in terms of overall score at ISC’13. It is China’s second championship at ISC’13 after Tianhe-2 claimed the lead in the Top500 list, and attendees were impressed by China’s rapid development in system research, application development, and talent education of supercomputers. Jointly arranged by the organising committee of the International Supercomputing Conference, and the Advisory Council of High Performance Computing (HPC AC), the ISC cluster challenge is known as one of the top three world supercomputer competitions alongside the SC from the US and the Asia Student Supercomputer Challenge from China.
