“In five years we want a competitive computer”

Germany is providing two billion euros for quantum computers. Government advisor Peter Leibinger explains what should be done with it. UIn the technology of tomorrow, fierce competition has broken out. Quantum computers are right at the top of the agenda – in America, China, Japan and Europe. The states invest large sums in basic research.The federal government has now provided a further two billion euros. There is now an ambitious roadmap for their use. Companies like VW, Zeiss, Trumpf and Böhringer Ingelheim are already looking for applications, IT companies like Google and IBM are already building the first computers.Second generation quantum technology is now making its way from research institutes to business. She no longer wants to use quantum mechanical effects passively,...

Spooky long-distance effect

Germany wants to be a leader in quantum technology. Good – anything else would also be fatal. RHuge hope rests in the world of the very smallest: one day, quantum computers will push the boundaries of what is meaningfully calculable, based on theories that are difficult to access for common sense. If that succeeds, complex calculations that take years today or are not possible at all could take hours in the future. At a time when the available data volumes and computing power often separate success from failure anyway, it is perfectly clear what threatens those who cannot keep up.This is, so to speak, the technological panorama in front of which the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and the computer group IBM officially put their freely accessible quantum computer into operation this Tuesday...
