Keysight and Singapore’s Quantum Engineering Programme to accelerate research, development and education in quantum technologies; Keysight’s Head of Quantum Strategy presents today at IQT-San Diego Quantum Enterprise
(FinanceYahoo) Keysight Technologies, Inc. and Singapore’s Quantum Engineering Programme (QEP) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to collaborate in accelerating research, development and education in quantum technologies. IQT-News summarizes and points readers to Keysight CEO’s presentations today at IQT-San Diego.
The QEP was launched in 2018 by the National Research Foundation, Singapore (NRF) and hosted at the National University of Singapore (NUS), with the aim of supporting quantum technologies research and ecosystem building. The programme funds projects in quantum computing, quantum communication and security, quantum sensing, as well as a quantum foundry, that are expected to lead to practical uses.
Keysight is well positioned to provide modular and scalable quantum control systems, by leveraging the company’s expertise in advanced measurement equipment, qubit control solutions and precise measurement instrumentation, which enable researchers to engineer and perhaps scale next-generation systems to harness the power of quantum computing and other quantum devices.
Keysight’s Joseph Emerson, Head of Quantum Strategy, Keysight Technologies Inc.is scheduled to speak at IQT-San Diego today, May 11 on Panel 3: Test and Measurement in the Quantum Technology Industry May 11 at 2:20 PST & Panel 1: IP Issues in the Quantum Technology Industry today at 4:45 PST.
“It’s going to take a team effort to deliver on the promise of quantum technologies, whether that is better computing performance or more secure communication. We are glad to have Keysight join the partners of the Quantum Engineering Programme to support this work in Singapore,” said Alexander Ling, director of the QEP. He is also an associate professor in the NUS Department of Physics and Principal Investigator at the Centre for Quantum Technologies.
Under the MOU, QEP and Keysight will closely cooperate in the development of quantum instrument packages, as well as the technologies that enable quantum systems to be scalable and deployable. In addition, they will establish a programme named “Quantum Joint Innovation Accelerator” that makes it easy for researchers participating in QEP to access several of Keysight’s software design tools and advanced test and measurement equipment. Researchers can apply to evaluate Keysight measurement tools in their laboratories and access equipment hosted at Keysight’s premises in Singapore.
