Executing Microsoft Quantum Topological Dataset Notebooks

Microsoft recently released its Topological Quantum Computing dataset for anyone to try out. This post describes how to do so.

As shown in this article, you can create an Azure Quantum Workspace and within its Notebooks tab, visit the available notebooks under Topological Quantum Computing.

There are three notebooks available to review:

  • Analysis of device data from preprint paper
  • First stage of topological gap protocol
  • Second stage of topological gap protocol

To view and run a notebook:

  1. In your new workspace, select Notebooks and then select Topological quantum computing.
  2. Select your desired notebook, and select Copy to my notebooks.Copy sample notebook.

Once you open your Azure Quantum Workspace, Select Topological Quantum Computing. Copy each into your notebooks, which is the third item among your listed Jupyter Notebooks.

Opening each starts a new Jupyter Server instance within your Azure Quantum Workspace. Study it, then click run all.

Each notebook should execute within a few minutes and populate the cells with results – data or graphics.

In case you want to see the outputs you can read this paper which contains all the graphics that are generated using these three notebooks. Below is a Zipfile containing execution results from Pivotport Quantum Workspace if you wish to examine them in your own Jupyter Server.

Our startup is developing a cutting-edge technology for early detection and identification of cardiac anomalies using quantum computing. By harnessing the power of quantum computing, our technology is able to analyze vast amounts of data from electrocardiograms and generate cardiac spectrograms, to provide highly accurate and actionable results to support quicker cardiac anomaly diagnosis.

This technology has the potential to revolutionize the way cardiac anomalies are detected and treated, leading to better outcomes for patients and significant cost savings for the healthcare system. With your investment, we will be able to bring this innovative technology to market and make a real impact on people’s lives.

Additionally, we are also targeting to expand our technology to other medical applications such as brain anomalies detection.

We are seeking funding to support the development and commercialization of our technology. With your support, we can bring Quantum Cardiac Anomaly Detection to the market and change the way cardiac anomalies are detected and treated.

Thank you for considering our proposal. We would be happy to discuss this opportunity further with you and answer any questions you may have. Please connect by booking a Teams call via the Contact page.

Pivotport granted $10K in Azure Quantum Credits for IonQ Aria

Microsoft Azure Quantum Group has granted use of $10K worth of Azure Quantum Credits for Aria, the IonQ Quantum Computer available on Azure as of today.

This is in addition to the prior grant of a similar amount of credits for Harmony by IonQ during September 2021.

We will continue to pilot the Quantum Cardiac Detector software using these credits towards QPU driven processing of ECG signals.

Pivotport, Inc. presented at the ISQCMC

Pivotport, Inc. CEO Rajiv Mistry and his Purdue University classmate, Jonathan Ortega presented at the first International Symposium for Quantum Computing in Musical Creativity , hosted online by University of Plymouth (UK) on 11/19-20/2021.

The topic covered discussion of the strategy, approach and results of a Quantum Algorithms and Software project titled:
Quantum Frequency Detector for Audio Files

This is based on the project completed by Rajiv Mistry, Jonathan Ortega and John Kye during their coursework at Purdue towards their Micromasters in Quantum Technology: Detectors and Networking during Q1-Q2 of 2021.

The below results files in PDF format are available for session attendees:

Simulated Results for Quantum Frequency detector

Quantum Startup Mentoring by Pivotport, Inc.

The Compass Program at University of Chicago’s Polsky Center selected Rajiv Mistry as Quantum Startup Mentor for two startups being incubated in this program:

memQ, a Quantum Hardware startup with a founding team of PhDs at Argonne National Labs and MBA interns from University of Chicago Booth School. As a result of the mentoring by Rajiv Mistry and the earnest efforts by its founders, memq has successfully raised over $325k in seed funding.

AccelerateAI, an EDGE/IoT Hardware startup founded by a PhD from Notre Dame University and a professor in hardware device engineering.

The professional services contract engagement is for a six month period July-December 2021 between Pivotport, Inc. and University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
