量子コンピュータと未来

量子コンピューティングは世界を変えます。

量子コンピューティングは、量子力学の基本法則「エンタングルメント」と「干渉効果」を利用して、我々が普段使っているコンピュータでは太刀打ち出来ない種類の(巨大なサイズの)問題を解いてしまうのです。それは例えば、創薬、鉄鋼、材料、ITを含む広い産業に変革を起こすでしょう。またそれは金融、オペレーションズリサーチ、AIといった業界で現れる最適化問題の解決にも応用できるのです。このように、量子コンピューティングは社会と産業の発展に大きく貢献し、ひいては今世紀に人類が直面しているいくつかの難題をも解決してくれるでしょう。

慶應義塾大学では、量子コンピューティングを発展させる研究をしています。例えば新しい量子アルゴリズムの開発、または既知の量子アルゴリズムを効率よく実装する手法の開発をしています。また量子コンピュータを上手く制御するための手法の開発、量子コンピュータ実装のための半導体同位体工学の世界展開、量子コンピュータをつなげてネットワークをつくる手法の開発などを行っています。

慶應義塾大学は、IBM の量子コンピュータ実機「IBM Q」の最新版に アクセス出来る アジア圏唯一のハブです。量子コンピュータと聞くと難しく聞こえるかもしれませんが、 少数の大事なアイデアを押さえておけば、IBM Q のプログラミングを始めることが 出来ます。実際、 ハブでは新入生も含む学生達が、日々、このマシンを使って量子 コンピューティングを学んでいるのです。学生として、派遣研究者として、あるいはスタッフとして慶應ハブに参加しませんか?共に、この エキサイティングな先端技術のフロンティアを開拓していきましょう!

The Next Generation of Quantum Natives

Quantum computing will change the world.

Quantum computing uses quantum entanglement and interference to solve problems that ordinary, classical computers find difficult, especially as the problem size grows. Quantum computers will help researchers in fields as diverse as pharmaceuticals, steel, chemicals, and IT. Quantum optimization algorithms and mathematical algorithms have applications in finance, operations research, and artificial intelligence. Quantum computing will benefit society and industry, helping to solve the important global challenges in the twenty-first century.

At Keio University, we are working to advance the design of quantum computing systems; develop new quantum algorithms and find the best ways to implement known algorithms; test algorithms for controlling quantum systems; share expertise in isotopic engineering with quantum researchers throughout the world; and design the Quantum Internet.

The IBM Q Network Hub @ Keio University is the only organization in Asia to have access to IBM’s best quantum computer. It sounds exotic, but by learning just a few core ideas, anyone can begin programming this machine, and students as young as freshmen are using the computer every day. Come join Keio students, staff, and faculty, and researchers from hub member companies as we push the frontiers of technology’s most exciting field!

Take The Next Step: Learn the Basics

Keio University in partnership with the Keio Quantum Computing Center is pleased to offer “Understanding Quantum Computers” an online course taught by KQCC Vice Chair and Keio University Professor Rodney Van Meter this Spring 2018.

The course explores key concepts of quantum computing including why we build quantum computers, and covers key algorithms. The course also looks at quantum computing hardware and the budding quantum information technology industry. Key concepts will be explained graphically, with minimal mathematics required.
