Fujitsu Developing a ‘Real Quantum Computer’ Says Director of Fujitsu Laboratories
(Fujitsu) Fujitsu is developing a “real quantum computer,” according Hirotaka Hara, Director of Fujitsu Laboratories. The company is already pitching its “quantum inspired” Digital Annealer to businesses, a classical chip designed to solve complex combinatorial optimisation problems. “Even before a real quantum computer arrives to market, we have taken action and completed the Digital Annealer, which embraces what we can do with existing quantum computing,” Hara recently said at the Fujitsu Forum in Tokyo.
“But in parallel we are also, at our research institutes overseas and working hand in hand with universities and prestigious research centres, working to develop that real quantum computer,” he added.
