ABC article “Public-private partnerships take quantum supercomputing to the next level” highlights the Quantum Spain initiative, coordinated by Qilimanjaro and GMV, an initiative aiming at creating a solid computational computing ecosystem in Spain. This project strives to bring to the research community, businesses at large and public organizations the ability to develop AI applications driven by the quantum power.
This unprecedented project conveys “A commitment to the future that will strengthen technological and industrial development in Spain and create highly skilled jobs, one of our main objectives”, as underlined by Spanish Secretary of State for Digitalization and Artificial Intelligence, Carme Artigas, and supported by the Spanish Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation.
Quantum Spain represents a great opportunity for Qilimanjaro, with serious work ahead which will provide another undoubted competitive advantage in the Spanish and European quantum landscape: “Different hardware and software will have to be created to address the limitations of conventional computing, as quantum technology makes it possible to go beyond the nanometer limit. ” Victor Canivell-CBO and cofounder of Qilimanjaro.
We are expecting the next generation of quantum computers, the first quantum chip in the second quarter of 2023 at the Qilimanjaro facility, if the forecasts are fulfilled. This is the first step in this unprecedented project, which will allow unimaginable breakthroughs to be achieved with an impact on the entire society at large. And Qilimanjaro is working already in this new paradigm with companies for the quantum-ready age to prepare for possibly one of the biggest technology transfer to society in recent decades.
