The company will also join the Taiwan Ministry of Science and Technology’s Quantum National Team, a project that aims to promote research and development of quantum science and technology in cooperation with industry, government and academia.
The team will receive $250 million from the government of Taiwan between 2022 and 2026. Chung Yuan Christian University is one of the beneficiaries and will use its share to fund a five-year research project on using quantum computing for optimization, chemistry and finance with Fujitsu’s quantum technology.
Fujitsu’s Digital Annealer processes the same large-scale combinatorial optimization problems that quantum annealers are designed for but using traditional semiconductor technology. They operate faster than current quantum solutions and at room temperature and integrate readily with existing
Digital Annealer is part of Fujitsu’s Computing as a Service portfolio that the company launched in Japan in October and intends to roll out globally next year. Fujitsu also provides consulting services to support academic, research and product R&D applications for Digital Annealer.
