Breakthrough achievement in quantum computing — ScienceDaily

A University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) researcher is part of a collaboration that has set a world record for innovation in quantum computing. The accomplishment comes from R. Tyler Sutherland, an assistant professor in the College of Sciences Department of Physics and Astronomy and the College of Engineering and Integrated Design’s Department of Electrical Engineering, who developed the theory behind the record setting experiment.

Sutherland and his team set the world record for the most accurate entangling gate ever demonstrated without lasers.

According to Sutherland, an entangling gate takes two qubits (quantum bits) and creates an operation on the secondary qubit that is conditioned on the state of the first qubit.

“For example, if the state of qubit A is 0, an entangling gate doesn’t do anything to qubit B, but if the state of qubit A is 1, then the gate flips the state of

keeping sports betting safe an fun

Whether you’re a Red Wings fan, prefer the Michigan vs. Michigan State rivalry, or more closely follow professional golf, sports betting allows fans a fun way to engage in their favorite games.

The launch of legal sports betting last year has Michiganders enthusiastically moving to the regulated market. Since sports betting went live in 2020, sports fans in Michigan have wagered $2 billion and the state reached $1 billion in online wagers in just four months after mobile betting launched this year — faster than any other state in the country. 

Beyond the fun of giving fans a new, immersive experience, legal sports betting is paying back into the community through tax revenue supporting everything from parks, schools, public safety programs, fire departments and other local improvements.

Sports betting has grown exponentially since 2018 — it’s now legal in 31 other states and Washington, D.C. as well as in Michigan.
