Image recognition with the Pi0s 12 QPU cores

You’ve probably already seen one or more object recognition demos. Kochi Nakamura and his team have developed software ... based on GoogleNet deep neural network with a a 1000-class image classification model ... running on Raspberry Pi Zero ... levering the embedded 12 QPU-cores found in Broadcom B...

Re: Build your own Quantum Circuit with your Pi Zero (and IB

So the title of this thread is wrong. We don't build a Quantum machine - we just build an interface to IBM's machine. You are using (not building) the interface to IBM's „5 qubit machine“. QASM-editor and/or the Composer are the tools to do this. Both tools are ready to use. QASM is a textual langu...

Re: Build your own Quantum Circuit with your Pi Zero (and IB

IBM asking for help from Raspbians? The other way around. IBM dosn't need your help. IBM is offering help for you. When it comes to take some practice in quantum computing only a „5US$-Zero“ is needed (with the help from IBM). Ok, any other machine with a browser will do it … but this way we get th...

Build your own Quantum Processor with your Pi Zero (with some help from IBM) Sounds crazy ?? Not at all. Not at all. You only need a „5 US$ - Rasperry Pi zero“ (or a "10 US$ - Pi 0-W") to design your own Quantum Circuit. The raw power of a Pi3 is not needed. Send your Design to IBM. They will test y...

Don't forget the CSI/DSI Interface. 2 of 4 Lanes are available. When it comes to high bandwidth ( Multi GigBit, independend of the USB2.0) this is an option.

Re: Pi zero work with pi 3

More generally for the OP... Yes, you can assemble a group of Pis together to operate as a single "machine" Formally, this is a "cluster". In Pi terms, it is often called a "bramble". Due to relatively slow inter-node communications, it's not going to have anywhere near the performance you might th...

Re: Pi zero work with pi 3

The Pi3 is up to 8X faster than the Pi Zero. So no, you can't use a Pi Zero to make a Pi3 faster. Yes and No. Pi3 and Pi Zero are both using the same GPU. So adding a 5-USD-Pi-Zero to the 35-USD-Pi3B increases the number of QPUs from 12 to 24. Example: A 1024*1024 FFT (roughly speaking this are 204...
