Minister Ingrid van Engelshoven and European Commissioner Mariya Gabriel launched Europe’s first public quantum computing platform: 'Quantum Inspire' on April 20, 2020. The platform was developed by Delft-based QuTech, a collaboration between TU Delft and TNO, one of our customers.
Quantum Inspire makes the quantum computer accessible to everyone and is the first in the world to use a quantum processor made of scalable 'spin qubits'. With Quantum Inspire, QuTech aims to make quantum computers accessible to the market and society as quickly as possible. QuTech therefor has launched a web portal at www.quantum-inspire.com.
The quantum computer is seen as a key technology, enabling radically new products and services. It has the potential to solve certain problems much faster than ‘classical’ computers will ever be able to. For example, by helping to unravel the complex behaviour of molecules for drug development.
"It is special to have worked on this project because it brings new quantum technology to the world."
Our colleague Luc Blom, who worked on this project with a few of our other colleagues, is very happy and satisfied with his contribution. “It was a challenging project in which I could put my knowledge of both software and physics to use”, as Luc says. “It is special to have worked on this project because it brings new quantum technology to the world. Quantum-Inspire is a platform that helps with the development of new applications and gives everyone interested a glimpse into the world of quantum.”
