IBM Quantum System One

IBM's Quantum System One is installed at the Kawasaki Business Incubation Center.

Japan plans to have 10 million people using quantum computing technology by 2030. Bringing the country's first homegrown machine into service, a first step in the plan, is to occur by the end of March 2023. 

The strategy deems quantum computing will be at the heart of future cross-border competition and a key to economic security.

To explore industrial applications, the government will add two new research sites. One will be housed at Tohoku University. It will train personnel and support research and development. The other, at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University, will serve as a hub for advancing joint research by global scientists.

The draft strategy envisions support for quantum technology startups through a state-owned fund. Active investment by the private sector business community is considered essential.
