Baidu introduces the world’s first superconducting quantum computer with hardware and software integration
Baidu, Inc., a leader in artificial intelligence (AI), announced on August 25 the debut of its first superconducting quantum computer, which integrates hardware, software, and applications.
According to a press release, Baidu has also developed the world’s first all-platform quantum hardware-software integration solution that gives consumers access to a range of quantum chips through a mobile app, a personal computer, or the cloud.
This new product, which was revealed at Beijing’s Quantum Create 2022, a conference for quantum developers, paves the door for the long-awaited industrialization of quantum computing.
Quantum computing is projected to bring about revolutionary changes in domains such as artificial intelligence, computational biology, material modelling, and finance technology. Using 10 quantum bits (qubits) of high-fidelity power, ‘Qian Shi’ provides the general public with a dependable and important quantum computing service.
Quantum computing continues to improve
The area of quantum computing is progressing rapidly. As a consequence, quantum computing may make an increasing number of componential contributions to their current processes in the actual world.
Consequently, the ‘Liang Xi’ solution, the first all-platform quantum hardware-software integration solution in the world, has been created.
Dr Runyao Duan, Director of Baidu Research’s Institute for Quantum Computing, stated: “With Qian Shi and Liang Xi, customers may construct quantum algorithms and use quantum computing power without having to develop their own quantum hardware, control systems, or programming languages.”
He added: “Baidu’s breakthroughs make quantum computing accessible anytime, anywhere, even via smartphone. Additionally, Baidu’s platform is instantaneously interoperable with a broad variety of quantum processors, allowing for “plug-and-play” access.”
