Quantum and su­per­com­puters in re­search: ex­pert ex­plains the status quo

 |  EIM-NachrichtenCS-Nachrichten

Quantum research is producing incredible technologies and overcoming boundaries that were previously considered insurmountable. The potential of the quantum computer - the crown jewel of these research activities - is immense. But what are the advantages of quantum computers compared to those of current high-performance computers? Where are the limits and how can the two be profitably combined? In a new video, Prof. Dr. Sevag Gharibian, an expert in quantum computing, explains the current state of research.

Scientists develop hybrid model

In order to fully exploit the potential of modern computing systems, Paderborn scientists want to establish a hybrid model: They are combining quantum and supercomputing. The approach is new and offers a number of advantages. Because information processing takes place in parallel, i.e. the tasks are distributed and processed simultaneously, they can be solved more quickly. Parallel structures are available to take care of the individual work packages.

Hand in hand for the world of tomorrow

Physicists, computer scientists, mathematicians and engineers are working closely together at Paderborn University to accelerate information processing on and by quantum systems. With the help of simulations and the concrete realization of photonic quantum systems, they are well on the way to making significant progress in a variety of fields.
