NEC, partially supported by Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), is now developing quantum annealers using superconducting parametron qubits and working on increasing the number of all-to-all connected qubits, with an aim to realize practical machines by 2023. NEC will apply the results of the collaboration with ParityQC to the ongoing project with NEDO.
Masayuki Shirane, Senior Manager, System Platform Research Laboratories, NEC Corporation, said, “I’m thrilled about this partnership in quantum computing research with ParityQC. I firmly believe that using the ParityQC architecture will enable us to realize a quantum annealing machine that delivers the full potential of our superconducting parametron qubits.”
Magdalena Hauser & Wolfgang Lechner, CEOs of ParityQC, said, “One of the great advantages of simultaneously developing hardware and software is the perfect alignment of both disciplines. Exploring this approach together with NEC’s newly developed hardware platform holds great promise.”
ParityQC is a quantum architecture company from Austria which develops blueprints for quantum computers to solve optimization problems based on the ParityQC architecture. ParityQC’s operating system – ParityOS – allows for a compilation of optimization problems with an order of magnitude fewer qubits compared to the standard annealing approach. This will enable the encoding of large and complex optimization problems years earlier compared to the standard approach.
