IQM teams to develop application-specific quantum processors

IQM Quantum Computers has teamed up with Multiverse Computing in Spain to develop quantum processors optimised for specific applications.

There are several technologies available for quantum computing, from ion traps and cold atoms to light-based photonic systems, all with different advantages for specific applications. One example of this is the Quantum Computing Centre in Israel which is commissioning a range of different computer systems.

With Multiverse, Finland-based IQM will design application-specific quantum processors (perhaps ASQPs) that use the strengths of each technology while making use of Multiverse’s customer knowledge to offer the best custom solutions.

“This partnership combines the best solutions in today’s quantum software and hardware,” said Dr. Peter Eder, Head of Partnerships of IQM Quantum Computers. “We are bringing some of the best quantum experts in this world together to find a fast lane to quantum advantage. Our customers and end-users globally will benefit from this unique joint offering, and we can’t wait to share the results of this collaboration.”

Multiverse’s Singularity SDK is a front-runner in delivering intuitive quantum software plug-ins as well as quantum-inspired algorithms for a wide range of applications including optimization, machine learning and simulations. It has worked with Interlaken in Spain on the first AI vision system to use quantum algorithms.

IQM’s co-designed quantum computers minimize non-essential overheads and offer new chip architecture and ultrafast quantum operations.

“While Multiverse can offer added value today with our quantum-inspired solutions, being a part of a custom full-stack solution is key for Singularity’s adoption and will ultimately drive the adoption of quantum computing technologies,” said Mehdi Bozzo-Rey, Chief Revenue Officer at Multiverse Computing. “This combined offering means both our customers can explore the power of quantum computing with customized solutions dedicated to solving their particular business challenges.”

IQM is building Finland’s first commercial 54-qubit quantum computer with VTT, and an IQM-led consortium (Q-Exa) is also building a quantum computer in Germany. This computer will be integrated into an HPC supercomputer to create a quantum accelerator for future scientific research. IQM has over 190+ employees with offices in Paris, Madrid, Munich, and Espoo.
