Tencent Announces Latest Research Progress in Quantum Computer Architecture, Exploring Highly Parallel Architectures

A novel quantum control microarchitecture, QuAPE, has been proposed by a team at Tencent’s Quantum Laboratory. Experiments show that a 2.59-fold speedup (up to 3.11-fold theoretically) was achieved in a test of a complex algorithm with large amounts of feedback through a multicore architecture; an average 4.04-fold performance improvement was achieved in a test of several other common quantum algorithms through a superscalar architecture. The new highly parallel control method provides an important foundation for building a control layer suitable for large-scale quantum computers.

ZTE and CAS Quantum Net jointly build quantum security applications

At the 2021 China Smart City Expo, ZTE and CAS Quantum Net have partnered to build quantum security applications to build an ICT infrastructure industry that incorporates QKD technology. The project has reportedly landed in Chongqing and has built a quantum security-based cloud computing platform for the local government to unify and securely supervise the data of business systems on the cloud and provide security protection for the data.

QuantumCTek and State Grid Corporation of China on “5G+Quantum” Project

QuantumCTek cooperated with State Grid Corporation Zhejiang Jinhua Power Supply Company to build a real application test environment for distribution network by means of fusion of quantum confidential communication technology and existing 5G network security protection technology, and successfully deployed the “5G+Quantum” security service platform to realize remote control of the test ring network cabinet, providing technical support for the widespread application of quantum confidential communication and 5G technology fusion solution in the distribution network to provide technical support.

China’s first quantum computing industrial park begins construction

Origin Quantum and Hefei Lanke Investment Co., Ltd. signed a contract to jointly build the first quantum computing industrial park in Hefei, which also marks the official start of the establishment of the first quantum computing industrial park in China. The industrial park will create an ecological industrial chain of quantum computing. After the park is completed and in use, it is expected to introduce 60 upstream and downstream enterprises of quantum computing. It is expected to solve 2,000 jobs in technology research and development, marketing and sales, administrative logistics, etc.

Yung Shan Middle School establishes a quantum computer science room

On September 1, the first quantum computer science room in Shunde campus of Rongshan Middle School was officially inaugurated, which is also the first campus quantum computing science base in China, providing a practical platform for students to promote quantum computing science and programming design.

East China Normal University makes important progress in superradiant quantum phase transition

East China Normal University has made important progress in “Observation of Superradiation Quantum Phase Transition of Ultra-cold Degenerate Fermi Gas in Optical Cavity”. It is the first time to reveal the role of quantum statistics in superradiative quantum phase transitions. found that the Pauli repulsion changes the scaling rate of the critical pumping intensity with the atomic number.which provides a way to study the non-equilibrium dynamics of Fermi states with long-range interactions. The ideal platform. The research has been published in Science  as “First Release”.
