A new approach to simulate molecules on a quantum computer

At the core of stakes, we have seven-qubit quantum processor to address the molecular structure problem; we have near-term quantum systems to enhance our understanding of complex chemical reactions that could lead to practical applications; the interplay of atoms and molecules; use quantum computers to wholly analyze molecules and chemical reactions, more personalized drugs, or discovery of more efficient and sustainable energy sources, to name a few.
In effect,IBM scientists have developed a new approach to simulate molecules on a quantum computer that may one day help revolutionize chemistry and materials science. One can observe that, the scientists successfully used a seven-qubit quantum processor to address the molecular structure problem for beryllium hydride (BeH2), the largest molecule simulated on a quantum computer to date. According to IBM, the results demonstrate a path of exploration for near-term quantum systems to enhance our understanding of complex chemical reactions th…

Emerging markets seem especially prepared to use alternative payment methods

Emerging markets seem especially prepared to use alternative payment methods. Then, one can observe that, in Southeast Asian counties other than Singapore, cash on delivery or bank transfers are used more than credit card by online shoppers. Cash payment on delivery is also preferred by online shoppers in the Middle East.

Alternative methods are eating on Credit card as the top payment method used by online shoppers worldwide

It remains clear that, while credit card remains as the top payment method used by online shoppers worldwide, alternative methods are eating on that lead, and in some countries, have overtaken cards' leading position. Among the alternative payment methods used are E-Wallets like Alipay and PayPal, bank transfer, and cash on delivery.
