(Innovation.AUS) Quantum Brilliance is an Australian quantum computing hardware provider spun out of the Australian National University last year.
The company uses artificial diamonds to power its quantum computers, which there is no need for the complex cooling systems typically associated with the technology. Read more about the technology on Quantum Brilliance website.
These quantum computers won’t require large amounts of space and will be able to slot in over existing technologies like laptops and satellites.
The startup has signed a partnership with the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre to develop quantum expertise in the staff at the high-performance computing and data research facility in Perth, and later to install its quantum computers at the site.
The collaboration also has a goal of establishing Australia’s first quantum supercomputing hub for innovation at Pawsey, a key plank of the CSIRO’s Growing Australia’s Quantum Technology Industry roadmap.
The partnership with Pawsey is a key first step to achieving that sovereign capability in quantum computing, Mr Horsley said, with a goal to establish an ecosystem of key industry players.
“To get that sovereign capability we need viable companies. This is an important milestone for us as a company. We also need a robust quantum ecosystem in Australia – we need users and secondary industries feeding in like manufacturing, and we need domestic customers,” he said.
