At Microsoft Ignite 2019 conference, Julie Love, senior director of Quantum Computing at Microsoft, revealed plans to jump into the quantum hardware business with a chip capable of running quantum software.
The company said it is developing a chip capable of running Microsoft quantum software and plans to develop a complete quantum system. The company also unveiled its Azure Quantum Service, now in private preview.
Microsoft’s qubit approach is to design its own chip they can control up to 50,000 physical qubits just three wires. They are developing the topological qubit, to have qubits with lower error rates, which allows to scale with far fewer resources in this constrained cryogenic environment. (TechTarget)
