Europe’s fastest supercomputer just connected to a quantum computer in Finland — here’s why

Posted by in categories: quantum physics, robotics/AI, supercomputing

The merged computing power can give rise to faster and more accurate machine learning applications.

Last month, LUMI, the fastest supercomputer in Europe, was connected to HELMI, Finland’s first quantum computer, a five-qubit system operational since 2021. This makes Finland the first country in Europe to have created such a hybrid system — it is one of the few countries worldwide to have done the same.

LUMI is famous — the supercomputer ranks third in the latest Top 500 list of the world’s fastest supercomputer and can carry out 309 petaflops. LUMI, too became operational in 2021.

The Ingenuity helicopter, which hitched a ride to Mars aboard NASA’s Perseverance rover, was designed as a proof-of-concept craft that was only expected to fly a total of five times.

Now, the Mars helicopter has achieved flight no. 35, and it has set a new altitude record in the process, reaching a height of 14 meters (46 feet) above the red planet’s surface, NASA announced on Twitter.
