(HPCWire) Quantum Brilliance, a venture-backed Australian quantum computing startup from The Australian National University, will install the world’s first diamond quantum accelerator at the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre.
Quantum Brilliance harnesses synthetic diamonds to build quantum accelerators that do not require near absolute zero temperature or complex laser systems to operate like mainframe quantum computers. Quantum Brilliance is one of only a few companies worldwide able to deliver market-ready quantum computing systems for customers to operate on-site.
With the installation, Pawsey will become one of the first supercomputing centres globally to host a universal quantum computer onsite. Pawsey and Quantum Brilliance will join forces with other Australian industry leaders and researchers as part of Pawsey’s Quantum Pioneer Program to develop cutting-edge quantum applications in machine learning, logistics, defence, aerospace, quantum finance and quantum research.
“I am delighted to see active industry and researcher engagement with quantum computing,” said Pawsey’s Executive Director Mark Stickells. “We are excited to explore the potential of this technology for Australian researchers to further accelerate their scientific workflows using the potential of quantum computing within the advanced infrastructure of a national research supercomputing centre.”
