RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) has launched a new division named "Quantum-HPC Hybrid Platform Division."
RIKEN is carrying out a project of the Transformative Research Innovation Platform of RIKEN platforms (TRIP) as a cross-disciplinary project. In this project, quantum computational technologies are expected to present the opportunity to tackle several problems that are currently infeasible to solve with supercomputers. In order to make practical use of quantum computing, high performance computing is required to be integrated with quantum computers. This division conducts the research and development of the quantum HPC hybrid computing platform and its system software for the integration of quantum computational technologies with high-end supercomputers.
