Japan’s Fujitsu and Riken develop a 64-qubit second-quantum computer.

Fujitsu and Riken announced the successful building of Japan’s second quantum computer on Thursday as part of global research efforts to make embryonic technology possible.

As researchers attempt to reduce the faults that hinder such systems from producing reliable results, the 64-qubit quantum computer from Fujitsu and the state-backed Riken will be coupled with a 40-qubit quantum computer simulator.

“It’s kind of a first or second step; we still have a long way to go,” said Shintaro Sato, head of Fujitsu’s quantum laboratory.

Governments and corporations such as IBM and Alphabet are investing in research into quantum computers, which have the potential to be millions of times more efficient than the fastest supercomputers.

Last year, IBM unveiled a 433-qubit quantum computer. Qubits, or quantum bits, are units of measurement for quantum-computers that use quantum physics.

China, the United States, and other industrial democracies are racing to be first in sophisticated technology, including quantum computing, with President Joe Biden attempting to obstruct some American funding in Chinese efforts to develop the technology.
