This is the future of computing. Quantum is a step change in how we compute, more like the associative nature of the human brain and our potential for intellect, than anything we get in traditional gate switching or binary operations today.
I use to work with Antti Vasara, CEO of VTT, and we were on many teams together at Nokia. I am confident he has the right focus and approach here in this initiative.
VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is launching a project to acquire Finland’s first quantum computer. The first phase of this three-phase project is seeking to bolster Finland’s ability to design and build quantum computers, and to create a competence base for future applications. The design and construction of the quantum computer will be carried out as an innovation partnership.
