(Thailand.TheNation) Thailand’s National Electronics and Computer Technology Centre (Nectec) is focusing on research into quantum computing technology, especially for quantum communication and quantum engineering. The move is in order to help leverage the future industrial benefits from artificial intelligence, Big Data, machine learning and blockchain. Potential benefits could abound, for example, in pharmaceuticals, weather forecasting, traffic and marketing.
Sarun Sumriddetchkajorn, a senior researcher at Nectec, said that quantum is a major focus of the centre, particularly through using quantum computing in a complementary way with the classic super computer. That combination is expected to lead the future computing era, he said.
