(Eureka) Forschungszentrum Jülich and Google are partnering in the field of quantum computing research. The partnership will include joint research and expert trainings in the fields of quantum technologies and quantum algorithms and the mutual use of quantum hardware. The German Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier recently congratulated the German-American research partnership during his visit to Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California.
Google and Forschungszentrum Jülich will support each other especially in training junior researchers and experts. “A shortage of specialists, like in the field of artificial intelligence, is also foreseeable in the field of quantum computing. For this reason, we invest in training and promoting top academic talent” says Dr. Markus Hoffmann, Head of Quantum Partnerships at Google.
Furthermore, Google and Forschungszentrum Jülich will engage in joint research in the field of hardware and quantum algorithms. Researchers on both sides will perform simulations on supercomputers at the JSC, and experiment with Google’s quantum processors.
