During the PsiDaresbury launch event, PsiQuantum also announced a new collaboration with STFC's Hartree Centre, aimed at cultivating practical industrial applications in preparation for the advent of large-scale, fault-tolerant quantum computing.
The Hartree Centre, also at Daresbury Laboratory, is home to some of the UK’s most advanced supercomputing experts and technologies, such as artificial intelligence and data analytics. It provides UK industry with access to advanced high-performance computing technologies, expertise and training with the aim of boosting UK economic growth.
Supported by the National Security Strategic Investment Fund, this project combines the Hartree Centre's industry and applications experience with PsiQuantum's expertise in algorithm development for fault tolerant quantum computing.
The project with the Hartree Centre has three aims:
• collaboratively develop algorithms to demonstrate the potential of PsiQuantum’s technology
• facilitate PsiQuantum’s collaborations with industry partners
• enhance the skillset of Hartree Centre experts in the field of quantum computing.
