News Analysis: Cambridge Quantum Brings On Quantum NLP To Life

CQ Is First To NLP On Quantum Via The lambeq Toolkit

On October 13th, Cambridge Quantum released lambeq, an open-source toolkit and library for Natural Language Processing on Quantum (QNLP), named after Joachim Lambek, the late pioneering McGill University professor in mathematics and theoretical computer science.  This breakthrough achievement is a quantum computing first.  lambeq allows the creation of language translation, language creation, text mining, text to speech, automated dialogs and more.  Sentences are converted to quantum circuits using QNLP on quantum hardware.

Anyone with an interest in NLP, and all users of the open source TKET, CQ's quantum software development platform. as well as any other quantum computing platforms such as qiskit can easily use lambeq on hardware such as Honyewell Quantum Solutions' trapped-ion H series or IBM superconducting quantum computers.  The open source nature of lambeq enables Anyone can access the Python repository of lambeq in Github

The Bottom Line: Cambridge Quantum's QNLP Makes NLP On Quantum Accessible

While the current offering is still in beta, the availability of QNLP provides early adopters with access to apply advanced QNLP techniques in large production environmentsExpect researchers to gain the expertise to move from theory to practical real-world NLP applications in years instead of decades.  This quantum first development is a significant milestone in this early history of quantum computing.

Constellation Research recommends that readers consult a stock professional for their investment guidance. Investors should understand the potential conflicts of interest analysts might face. Constellation does not underwrite or own the securities of the companies the analysts cover. Analysts themselves sometimes own stocks in the companies they cover—either directly or indirectly, such as through employee stock-purchase pools in which they and their colleagues participate. As a general matter, investors should not rely solely on an analyst’s recommendation when deciding whether to buy, hold, or sell a stock. Instead, they should also do their own research—such as reading the prospectus for new companies or for public companies, the quarterly and annual reports filed with the SEC—to confirm whether a particular investment is appropriate for them in light of their individual financial circumstances.
