In ten years’ time, Sweden’s Chalmers University of Technology (Wallenberg Center for Quantum Technology) anticipates having constructed a 100 qubit quantum computer. Today’s estimates are that around 50 qubits are needed to surpass supercomputing capabilities. The Chalmer’s research team being put together will also focus on superconducting qubits and methods to control and link the finicky subatomic particles. A necessity to developing a quantum computer. The $1B investment will employ 15 team members who will also team with industry. Already, Jeppesen, in the aviation industry, and Astrazeneca, a drug manufacturer, have begun collaboration with Chalmers. All stand to gain from the realization of a quantum computer.
