Baidu has released its first superconducting quantum computer – Interesting Engineering

PR Newswire
Chinese multinational technology company Baidu just released its first quantum computer on Thursday.
The first superconducting quantum computer, "Qian Shi" can integrate hardware, software, and many applications. Baidu also introduced the world's first all-platform quantum hardware-software integration solution – Liang Xi – that provides access to various quantum chips via mobile app, PC, and cloud.
Qian Shi is expected to solve data that a standard computer cannot calculate and problems that cannot be solved. This development is also thought to be a breakthrough in artificial intelligence, computational biology, material simulation, and financial technology.

Qian Shi offers a stable and substantial quantum computing service to the public with high-fidelity 10 quantum bits (qubits) of power. Apart from Qian Shi, Baidu has recently developed the design of a 36-qubit superconducting quantum chip.
Baidu seems to keep making a difference. Another quantum solution that plugs into Qian Shi is Liang Xi.
"With Qian Shi and Liang Xi, users can create quantum algorithms and use quantum computing power without developing their own quantum hardware, control systems, or programming languages," said Dr. Runyao Duan, Director of the Institute for Quantum Computing at Baidu Research.
"Baidu's innovations make it possible to access quantum computing anytime and anywhere, even via smartphone. Baidu's platform is also instantly compatible with a wide range of quantum chips, meaning 'plug-and-play' access is now a reality."
These latest innovations are backed by Baidu Research's Institute for Quantum Computing, whose technological footprint covers a wide range of areas, including quantum algorithms and applications, communications and networks, encryption and security, error correction, architecture, measurement and control, and chip design.
Across more than four years of research and development, Baidu has submitted over 200 core technology patent applications in the quantum technology field.
The Institute for Quantum Computing at Baidu Research was established in March 2018 by Dr. Runyao Duan. He is also the founding director of the Quantum Software and Information Centre at the University of Technology Sydney.
As Baidu claims, they aim to integrate quantum technologies into Baidu's core business, with the institute developing towards the goal of becoming a world-leading Quantum Artificial Intelligence (AI) research.
The Institute for Quantum Computing at Baidu Research aims at building full-stack quantum software and hardware solutions and focuses on the breakthrough in fundamental Quantum research.
Baidu campaigned to succeed in the vision of a world where "Everyone Can Quantum.
