IBM to Build Europe’s First Quantum Computer in Germany

IBM will construct the first European quantum computer, slated to go online from early 2021, in Germany. That nation’s Fraunhofer Society research institute will function as gatekeeper for IBM’s Q System One, which researchers will be able to access in accordance with the EU’s position on data sovereignty. IBM Europe’s Martin Jetter said an EU-based quantum computer will play a key role in shaping future European society, while the German government considers quantum computing very important to security, especially in the field of cryptography. Said Fraunhofer president Reimund Neugebauer, “Quantum computing has the potential to analyze the complex systems in business and industry, to unravel molecular and chemical interactions, to solve complicated optimization problems, and to make artificial intelligence significantly more powerful.”
