He is a professor at the University of Gent (BE) responsible for quantum computer engineering research. The goal is to create a quantum accelerator, based on the PISQ-methodology. The emphasis is more on the QC-logic rather than the number of qubits.
He decided to create QBee.eu to start working with industrial companies such that more application fields are looked at from a QC-logic point of view.
Very important is that QBee has a first client, a large EU-based space company.
QBee is also still looking for a good CEO and more investors. The way forward has clearly been found and we need more collaboration with other startups, universities and companies to make it in a real-world computational accelerator.
A small history of QBee
10 years ago, one of the founders of QBee started working on quantum computing in Delft and managed to land the US-based company, Intel. They wanted to develop a first tentative quantum chip. There was also an intensive collaboration with the superconducting team in Delft and that led to a relatively large quantum chip of more than 30 qubits.
QBee has defined the full stack for a quantum accelerator. It starts at the application layer and, as a company, focuses on Quantum Genetics and Quantum Chemistry. Any application is then executed by different, fully integrated layers such as the programming language, the micro-architecture up to the quantum simulator.
