RIKEN and Fujitsu have collaborated to develop a new 64-qubit superconducting quantum computer at the RIKEN RQC- Fujitsu Collaboration Center. The new quantum computer, which leverages the technology developed by RIKEN and a consortium of joint research partners including Fujitsu for Japan’s first superconducting quantum computer, is being used for a platform for hybrid quantum computing, which combines the computing power of the newly developed quantum computer with one of the world's largest 40 qubit quantum computer simulators developed by Fujitsu. The new hybrid platform enables easy comparison of calculation results of noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) computers against error-free results from quantum simulators, and the partners plan to use it to accelerate research in areas including performance evaluation of error mitigation algorithms in quantum applications. Fujitsu and RIKEN began providing the new platform to companies and research institutions that are conducting joint research with Fujitsu and RIKEN on October 5.
