Recently, some members of QUANTIC have established Qilimanjaro Quantum Tech SL, a new spin-off of our three institutions: the University of Barcelona, Barcelona Supercomputing Center and Instituto de Física de Altas Energías. The PIs of QUANTIC, Dr. José I. Latorre, Dr. Artur Garcia-Saez and Dr. Pol Forn-Díaz, together with experts from the IT and M&A sectors will lead this project.
The future will be Quantum, and Qilimanjaro’s aim is to play an important role in the development of quantum technologies, both in the hardware as in the algorithmic parts. Qilimanjaro will also construct all the structure that is needed to run quantum algorithms in a own-made quantum computer. This quantum hardware will make use of high-quality qubits to perform adiabatic quantum computation. This technique has got enough potential as to offer actual optimization applications in the advent of the quantum era.
This technology will be available in the mean-term future as a cloud service, allowing all users to explore the capabilities of quantum computers.
