Fujitsu and Osaka University deepen collaborative research

Osaka University and Fujitsu Limited announced the establishment of the Fujitsu Quantum Computing Joint Research Division as a collaborative research division at the Center for Quantum Information and Quantum Biology (hereafter QIQB) at Osaka University.

The newly created research division will focus on the development of fundamental technologies for fault-tolerant quantum computers capable of performing precise calculations while correcting errors that occur in quantum bits (qubits). These efforts will build on the respective strengths of the two partners, combining QIQB’s advanced quantum error correction and quantum software technologies with Fujitsu’s applied knowledge of computational and quantum technologies.

Specifically, QIQB and Fujitsu aim to develop quantum software for fault tolerant quantum computers with up to several thousand qubits as well as technologies to verify its error correction operations.

In the future, the two partners will strengthen their R&D cooperation towards realizing fault-tolerant quantum computing technologies to innovate solutions to complex societal problems through quantum technology. Through the practical application of the results of this joint research, the partners aim to contribute to an early practical application of quantum computing with the potential to stimulate innovations and create a sustainable society.
