In recent years, research and development of quantum technologies, China has spent a lot of money and resources. In 2015 alone, for this purpose it took more than a hundred billion dollars, but the result of the work was the launch of the first quantum communication satellites in the world, and then there was developed by Chinese experts quantum radar. Now, scientists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences started building a quantum computer, surpassing all modern supercomputers in power, writes China Daily.
President of the Chinese Academy of Sciences Chunli Bai said that the set of equations, which is a Chinese supercomputer “Tianhe-2” will be able to solve a hundred years, a quantum computer will solve for the hundredth of a second. Speaking at a forum in the Chinese city of Langfang, Chunli noted that scientists from the Academy achieved great success on the part of the study, so it was decided to apply the knowledge in practice.
Creating Chinese quantum computer will be supported by the Laboratory of quantum computing, owned by Internet giant Alibaba. The laboratory specialists are confident that will be able to present its development in the next couple of years. When the computer is planned to fully complete, not yet reported.
