Quantum computing: Forschungszentrum Jülich and Google announce studies partnership

Berlin / Mountain View / Jülich, eight July 2019 – Forschungszentrum Jülich and Google associate inside the discipline of quantum computing studies. The partnership will encompass joint research and professional training in quantum technology and quantum algorithms and the mutual use of quantum hardware. The German Federal Minister of Economics, Peter Altmaier, congratulated the German-American research partnership at some stage in his go to Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California.

quantum computer systems change calculations tons more effectively than modern technology can. Quantum computer systems and quantum algorithms are crucial technology that allows you to shape your destiny and is being followed closely worldwide. At present, quantum computer systems are a good deal in their infancy, and it is difficult to predict what will become possible – and what perhaps will not. Researchers still have a lot of simple research to do in this region. It became an equal situation wwhilewe were developing modern-day computers. I am consequently overjoyed that Google and Forschungszentrum Jülich have determined to cooperate in the vital ahead-searching area of quantum computers”, said Peter Altmaier, Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy.

Google has been working on the development of quantum processors and quantum algorithms for years. Exploring new technology for quantum computer systems is likewise key research attention at Forschungszentrum Jülich. The German studies center will function and make publicly handy a European quantum PC with 50 to 100 superconducting qubits be evolved inside the EU’s Quantum Flagship Program, a large-scale initiative in the discipline of quantum technology funded on the 1 billion € levels on a 1tenyears timescale.

Quantum computers provide alternatives to remedy positive algorithmic troubles in seconds, which could take years with installed supercomputers. Google, an organization that units new standards on this discipline is a vital partner for us to join forces in research to develop this revolutionary generation”, explains Prof. Wolfgang Marquardt, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Forschungszentrum Jülich.

“Quantum processors may additionally guide the improvement of recent environmentally friendly technology and revolutionize synthetic intelligence technology. We are excited to peer the European tendencies and, as a part of the cooperation with the Forschungszentrum Jülich, we look ahead to contributing to the success of European quantum technology”, explains Dr. Hartmut Neven, Technical Director at Google and Head of the Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab.

Google and Forschungszentrum Jülich will assist, in particular, in training junior researchers and experts. “A shortage of professionals, like in the discipline of synthetic intelligence, is likewise foreseeable within the field of quantum computing. For this motive, we put money into education and selling top academic skills”, says Dr. Markus Hoffmann, Head of Quantum Partnerships at Google. The partnership includes ordinary research change. “Hands-on wworkshopsand spring schools may be organized at Forschungszentrum Jülich. The Jülich Unified Infrastructure for Quantum computing (JUNIQ), a European quantum PC user facility deliberate for the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), may be had for training enterprise specialists and might be available in the cloud to European users,” says Prof. Kristel Michielsen from the JSC, head of the studies group Quantum Information Processing

Furthermore, Google and Forschungszentrum Jülich will interact in joint research within hardware and quantum algorithms. Researchers on each facet will simulate supercomputers at the JSC and test with Google’s quantum processors. Forschungszentrum Jülich and Google have started the group work. Prof. Kristel Michielsen and Prof. Tommaso Calarco from Forschungszentrum Jülich received the Google Faculty Research Awards in 2018. Prof. Frank Wilhelm-Mauch, the recipient of a Google Faculty Research Award in 2015, is a collaborator of Forschungszentrum Jülich within the subproject OpenSuperQ of the European “Quantum Flagship” task.
