Australia & France partner to commercialize quantum computing tech

The Australian Government owned Silicon Quantum Computing (SQC) and the France-based Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) are likely to enter into a strategic partnership. Incidentally, this collaboration may be aimed at expanding & commercializing quantum computing technology.

According to SQC, the strategic agreement will help in integrating the silicon-CMOS expertise of both the entities. It is being speculated that the combined entity may evolve as one of the major players in the field of quantum computing hardware. Christophe Gégout, CEA Investissement chairman, has apparently stated that the strategic partnership between the two firms will bring together the researchers from both the countries to work for the continuous development of scientific & industrial quantum computing.

According to the latest news segregated by The Australian, Emmanuel Macron, the President of France, and the Australian Premier Malcom Turnbull have signed an MoU to form a joint venture for promoting silicon quantum computing activities. As per the terms & conditions stated in the deal, the two countries will make efforts to manufacture as well as commercialize the quantum silicon integrated circuit.

Experts believe that quantum computing has the ability to solve mathematical equations with commendable speed as compared to traditional computers. The Prime Minister of Australia, Mr. Turnbull emphasized that that the work carried out at the silicon quantum computing firm will boost the country’s research & innovation objectives in the field of quantum computing technology and are pivotal to the nation’s innovation and science agenda. Reputed personalities such as Michelle Simmons are of the view that quantum computing also has the ability to revolutionize the global IT sector.  

For the record, the team of researchers at SQC had developed first quantum bits (referred as qubit) in 2012 under Simmons, the director & founder of SQC. Sources cite that the firm has now set an objective for developing a ten-qubit quantum integrated circuit model in silicon by 2022.
