Japan’s RIKEN and Fujitsu recently announced the opening of the RIKEN RQC-Fujitsu Collaboration Center to support joint research and development of foundational technologies necessary to the development of quantum computers (QC), with a near-term goal of producing a 1000 qubit superconducting quantum computer. RIKEN has world-class skills in leading-edge scientific research including a range of quantum technologies while Fujitsu has demonstrated long-standing expertise in developing and fielding some of the highest performing advanced computing systems in the world. Such a combination could yield significant technology gains in the sector and open new areas of quantum computing applications and end uses. If able to successfully transition the results of this collaboration into commercial offerings, Fujitsu stands to become a strong competitor to leading commercial QC developers in the US and EU.
