Here’s another interesting article from Itproportal titled: France and Australia building a quantum supercomputer
France and Australia want to build a quantum computer with each other, it was announced this Wednesday morning. French president Emmanuel Macron and the Australian Head of state Malcolm Turnbull signed a Memorandum of Understanding, which was referred to as the “substantial next action” in the building of a silicon quantum computer system.
The contract will certainly see the development of a joint venture that will certainly develop innovation and also try to find commercialisation possibilities.
Australia’s Silicon Quantum Computing (SQC), and France’s r & d (R&D) organisation, the Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives (CEA) will certainly be working on the task.
Quantum computing is described as calculating through using quantum-mechanical sensations. Unlike standard computers, where information should be encoded right into binary digits, quantum computing allows little bits to be in superpositions, which essentially means they could be both 0 and 1 at the same time.
These computer systems, when they enter the mainstream, will be incomparably faster than also the fastest supercomputers these days.
Talking with ZDNet, CQC2T director and SQC supervisor and also owner teacher Michelle Simmons said quantum computer could change the IT industry.
“We have extraordinary leadership in silicon quantum computing throughout a series of systems, and also SQC is now moving rapidly to commercialise all these innovations.”
A number of tech firms, including IBM, are currently developing quantum computers, but they are still far from being commercially practical.
