Atom Computing to speculate $100 mln in Colorado for quantum laptop heart

Sept 28 (Reuters) – Atom Computing, a Berkeley, California-based quantum laptop maker, mentioned on Wednesday it might make investments $100 million over the subsequent three years in Colorado the place it plans to construct its subsequent technology of quantum computer systems.

It’s the newest quantum computing startup to construct out its base in Boulder, Colorado. The state began to spice up its involvement in quantum computing about two years in the past, mentioned Colorado’s governor, Jared Polis, who attended Wednesday’s Atom Computing occasion in Boulder.

“We need to be the chief of quantum computing as this trade creates a whole bunch of corporations, tens of 1000’s of jobs, and powers a brand new know-how revolution,” Polis instructed Reuters.

Quantum computer systems, which use quantum mechanics, will finally be capable of function hundreds of thousands of occasions quicker than as we speak’s superior supercomputers. The know-how remains to be in its early levels.

The College of Colorado Boulder has been a middle for quantum physics-related analysis, and is residence to JILA, previously referred to as the Joint Institute for Laboratory Astrophysics, a joint institute of the college and the Nationwide Institute of Requirements and Expertise.

Atom Computing makes use of lasers to regulate particular person atoms and construct qubits, the essential unit of quantum data. The corporate has raised a complete of $80 million thus far, it mentioned.
