Quantum Machines Selected to Build Israel’s National Quantum Computing Center
The center will be the first to house multiple types of QPU systems under one roof, positioning it as a hotbed of innovation and ensuring compatibility with future quantum technologies
TEL AVIV, Israel, July 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — quantum machines, the provider of breakthrough quantum control solutions that accelerate the development and implementation of quantum computers, today announced that it has been selected by the Israel Innovation Authority (IIA) to lead the establishment of the Israel Center of quantum computing. The center is part of the Israel National Quantum Initiative (INQI) and will host Israel’s first fully functional quantum computer available to commercial and research communities. Quantum Machines will lead the establishment of the center with a consortium of leading Israeli and international companies at the forefront of quantum computing in the world.
Quantum computers capable of general-purpose quantum computations will revolutionize a wide range of industries. Governments around the world view the development of national quantum capabilities as a matter of strategic national interest. China would have invested $10 billion in its National Quantum Initiative and the United States announcement a $1.2 billion national initiative in 2018. The Israel National Quantum Initiative was launched in 2018, and in February it was announcement that the 1.25B NIS initiative would fund the development of Israel’s first quantum computer.
Quantum Machines’ Quantum Orchestration Platform will be at the heart of the INQI Quantum Computer, providing a high degree of flexibility, extensibility and scalability. The platform will allow the use of a variety of qubit technologies, while a component-based approach will allow parts of the system to be upgraded to future quantum technologies. This strategy will ensure that the quantum computer remains at the cutting edge of technology as quantum technology continues to advance. The quantum computer will also feature integration with high performance computing (HPC) and an innovation testbed to foster the development of new quantum technologies.
“We look forward to working with the Israel Innovation Authority (IIA) to lead the development of the country’s first fully functional quantum computing center,” said Itamar Sivan, co-founder and CEO of Quantum Machines. “The open architecture approach that Quantum Machines and our leading partners in the consortium enable to ensure compatibility with future quantum technologies. This will allow the center’s quantum computer to grow from tens of qubits today to hundreds and thousands of qubits. qubits in the next few years. Our goal is to give Israeli companies access to the most advanced quantum technologies and services so that they can develop deep quantum expertise in industry and academia. This expertise will enable Israeli companies in a wide range of sectors and industries to gain a global leadership position.”
About the Consortium
Quantum Machines is leading a group of companies in developing Israel’s Quantum Computing Center, as well as providing its state-of-the-art quantum control platform for the center’s quantum computer. Other consortium partners include:
- Elbit Systems is a strategic partner in this project and will be part of the center’s advisory board. Elbit will lead the design of quantum applications for the government sector and assign dedicated teams to drive their development forward.
- QuantWare will provide its superconducting quantum processing units (QPUs)
- ORCA Computing will provide its scalable quantum photonics computing system
- ColdQuanta will provide its quantum computing system based on cold atoms
- ParTec will provide a high performance computing (HPC) platform and provide services for the integration of HPC and quantum computing
- Classiq and Super.tech will provide their state-of-the-art software application layer capabilities, including quantum software development tools and benchmarking software for all platforms in the center.
