IonQ announced a three-year alliance with South Korea’s Quantum Information Research Support Center, or Q Center.

IonQ, a leader in quantum computing, announced a three-year alliance with South Korea’s Quantum Information Research Support Center, or Q Center, according to a news release. The Q Center is an independent organization at Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) focused on the creation of a rich research ecosystem in the field of quantum information science. The partnership will make IonQ’s trapped-ion quantum computers available for research and teaching across South Korea.

IonQ’s systems have the potential to solve the world’s most complex problems with the greatest accuracy. To date, the company’s quantum computers have a proven track record of outperforming all other available quantum hardware.

IonQ and Q Center announce partnership to bring quantum hardware to researchers and students in South Korea

Researchers and students across South Korea will be able to immediately start running jobs on IonQ’s quantum computers. This partnership will enable researchers, scientists, and students to learn, develop, and deploy quantum applications on one of the world’s leading quantum systems.

“I am proud to see IonQ enter this alliance with Q Center,” said Peter Chapman, CEO & President of IonQ. “IonQ’s hardware will serve as the backbone for quantum research. Our technology will play a critical role not only in the advancement of quantum, but also in fostering the next generation of quantum researchers and developers in South Korea.”

“We believe IonQ has the most advanced quantum technology available, and through our partnership, we will be able to make tremendous strides in the advancement of the industry.”

“Our mission is to cultivate and promote the advancement of quantum information research in South Korea,” said SKKU Professor of SAINT (SKKU Advanced Institute of NanoTechnology), Yonuk Chong. “We believe IonQ has the most advanced quantum technology available, and through our partnership, we will be able to make tremendous strides in the advancement of the industry.”

This alliance builds on IonQ’s continued success. IonQ recently released a product roadmap to deploy rack mounted quantum computers by 2023, and achieve broad quantum advantage by 2025. IonQ also recently unveiled a new $5.5 million, 23,000 square foot Quantum Data Center in Maryland’s Discovery District. IonQ has raised $84 million in funding to date, announcing new investment from Lockheed Martin, Robert Bosch Venture Capital GmbH (RBVC) and Cambium earlier this year. Previous investors include Samsung Electronics, Mubadala Capital, GV, Amazon, and NEA. The company’s two co-founders were also recently named to the National Quantum Initiative Advisory Committee (NQIAC).
