The consortium of Vnesheconombank, the VEB Innovation Company, the Foundation for Advanced Studies (FPI), the Lomonosov Moscow State University and the ANO Digital Economy will invest 900 million rubles in the project of a super-powerful quantum computer in the next five years, the Izvestia newspaper writes a reference to the head of the direction of information research FPI Sergei Garbuk.
Also Garbuk said that in parallel with the development will be created and new algorithms for solving specific problems.
“Without adequate mathematical support The quantum computer will not have practical significance. The creation of quantum algorithms will make it possible to talk about a fundamentally new quality of solving such problems of great computational complexity, such as modeling human intellectual abilities, optimal distribution of transport and logistic flows, weather forecasting and others, “Garbuk's Izvestiya quotes.
Agreement on the creation in Russia 50-qubit quantum computer Vnesheconombank, Foundation for Advanced Studies, VEB-Innovations, Moscow State University and ANO Digital Economy signed on February 15 at the Russian Investment tion forum “Sochi-2018”.
According to this document, the parties will jointly implement a comprehensive scientific and technical project to create a multicubital optical quantum simulator based on photonic chips and neutral atoms, and develop the necessary research and technological infrastructure. In the framework of cooperation, it is expected to hold consultations, working meetings and other events during which the parties will put together and solve applied problems in the field of quantum technologies.
The head of the laboratory of artificial quantum systems, MIPT, Oleg Astafyev, said that a working system of 50 qubits can be created for five years, as this area of knowledge is developing very dynamically. The implementation of the project will significantly speed up the calculations and solve problems that are too complex for modern supercomputers.
