Xanadu has announced partnership with Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI). The goal of this partnership is to advance fundamental research in quantum machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) for fault-tolerant quantum computers. Xanadu is at the forefront of quantum computing, developing quantum algorithms and applications for future technologies. Integral to this partnership is Xanadu’s open-source software library, PennyLane, designed to augment quantum computing research and development.
Since 1985, ETRI has continued to push boundaries of South Korea’s technological advancements in information, communications, electronics, broadcasting and convergence technologies. With a shared vision for future of computing, both organisations recognise extraordinary potential for quantum technologies to reshape various industries worldwide.
The partnership will focus on developing quantum computing and machine learning algorithms targeted to run on fault-tolerant quantum computers currently under development at Xanadu. Leveraging Xanadu’s toolset for quantum machine learning and quantum computing, PennyLane, ETRI researchers will increase their scientific pursuits. Collaborative outcomes from this partnership will serve as a catalyst for future research and advance the global quantum research community.
In combining Canadian and Korean quantum computing skills, the partnership will drive advancements in scientific and applied realms, notably in machine learning and AI. “Xanadu is on a mission to build quantum computers that are useful and available to people everywhere. One of the ways to achieve our mission is to grow a global quantum ecosystem for both quantum hardware and software. We are excited to work with ETRI to extend our quantum software reach with PennyLane further.” says Christian Weedbrook, Xanadu founder and chief executive officer.
“We are on the cusp of a new era of computing; a goal at ETRI is to advance information and communications technology to meet the needs of this rapidly advancing industry. Partnering with Xanadu, working with their leading research team, and leveraging their expertise in quantum technology makes me confident that ETRI will continue to lead in cutting-edge quantum computing technologies for a better tomorrow.” says Bang Seung Chan, president of ETRI.
