Chinese company Baidu has released its first quantum computer Qian Shi

Baidu announced the creation of the first superconducting quantum computer Qian Shi ("Qian Shi"). Also

Chinese IT giant introduced the world's firstsoftware and hardware integration solution for all platforms. It provides access to various quantum chips through a mobile application, PC and cloud. The technology was presented at the Quantum Create 2022 quantum computing developer conference in Beijing.

The quantum computer, dubbed Qian Shi, features a 10-qubit processor, the company said in a statement. Baidu has also developed a 36-qubit quantum chip.

Revolutionary Quantum Computing Technology,which uses the laws of quantum mechanics to solve problems that classical computers cannot, will lead to the development of artificial intelligence (AI), computational biology and the creation of new types of materials. However, a large gap remains between quantum devices and services.

Feature of "Qian Shi", a superconductingindustrial-grade quantum computer in that it integrates a hardware platform with Baidu's own software stack. In addition to this infrastructure, there are many practical quantum applications such as quantum algorithms. They are used to develop new materials for lithium batteries or to model protein folding.

Baidu Research Institute of Quantum Computingwas founded in March 2018 by Runyao Duan, PhD, Founding Director of the Center for Quantum Software and Information at the University of Technology Sydney. With quantum computing playing a critical role in next-generation computing technology, the company aims to integrate quantum technology into Baidu's core business and the institute to become the world's leading quantum artificial intelligence (AI) research center.
