Researchers across Europe are calling for a €1bn investment to secure Europe’s role as a leader in the development of quantum technologies.
While Europe currently leads the “second quantum revolution” the manifesto highlights a lack of coherence between countries with no large-scale European quantum programme comparable to those in the US, China and other countries.
If this situation remains unchanged, the manifesto warns, Europe runs the risk of fragmentation and duplication of effort.
The recent addition of the Quantis Appliance completes the quantum random number generation line-up for ID Quantique in 2016.
Thanks to its reliability, the quality of its random output and its certifications, the Quantis QRNG has rapidly become the reference hardware random number generator for the demanding and highly regulated gaming and lottery industries.
For the first time, the main programme at the RSA Conference included a session on quantum technologies applied to cyber security applications.
The panel, hosted by IDQ’s Bruno Huttner, consisted of Jaya Baloo (KPN), Simon Brown (Westpac) & Jeff Hunt (Boeing).
Three key topics were up for discussion: The threat presented to cryptography by quantum computers, possible solutions to the problem through the application of quantum technologies & timing of the development of a commercially viable quantum computer.
The Netherlands, which holds the European Presidency in the first half of 2016, is hosting a high-level conference on Quantum Technologies in May.
ID Quantique will be speaking at this conference, the goal of which is to enhance overall activity and investment in Quantum Technologies across Europe and to offer a platform for the European scientific and industrial community to present a comprehensive strategy for Europe to stay at the forefront of this emerging technology.
