ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Work is underway to construct a quantum pc in Abu Dhabi, within the United Arab Emirates, ushering an vital milestone for the area on this breakthrough period in computing.
Expertise Innovation Institute (TII), the devoted ‘utilized analysis’ pillar of Abu Dhabi’s newly established Superior Expertise Analysis Council (ATRC), as we speak introduced that its Quantum Analysis Centre (QRC) crew led by its Chief Researcher Professor José Ignacio Latorre, will assemble the quantum pc within the UAE capital, in collaboration with Barcelona-based Qilimanjaro Quantum Tech researchers.
“We’re on the cusp of a brand new period with the appearance of quantum computing,” H.E. Faisal Al Bannai, Secretary Basic of ATRC, mentioned. “We’re proud to embark on constructing one in every of these great machines which is able to assist us in numerous fields, from discovering new medicines to creating new supplies to designing higher batteries to varied Synthetic Intelligence purposes.”
A quantum pc makes use of quantum mechanics phenomena equivalent to ‘superposition’ and ‘entanglement’ to generate and manipulate subatomic particles like electrons or photons – quantum bits also called ‘qubits’ – to create exponentially stronger processing powers that may assist carry out complicated calculations that may take for much longer to resolve even by the world’s strongest classical supercomputers.
Prof. Latorre defined that preparatory work has already begun. “Step one within the course of is to construct a laboratory, equip it and full set up of the cleanroom tools, all of which is on monitor. As soon as carried out, the primary qubits will probably be ready, characterised and benchmarked. We count on the primary easy quantum chips ‘Made in Abu Dhabi’ ought to come by the top of the summer time,” he mentioned.
Prof. Latorre mentioned there are a number of applied sciences to assemble quantum computer systems equivalent to superconducting qubits, ion traps, optical qubits, and spin dots, including QRC has opted to make use of superconducting qubits, which is identical expertise that Google and IBM use in constructing their very own quantum computer systems, and so they supply the perfect qubit expertise to scale to a bigger quantum pc.
QRC is one in every of seven devoted analysis centres at Expertise Innovation Institute (TII).
