Japanese tech giant Fujitsu has announced a new initiative to build on top of Riken research institute’s ongoing work with advanced superconducting quantum computing technologies to create a 1000 qubits quantum computer within the next few years.

The announcement comes after IBM promised to deliver a 1000 qubit quantum computer by 2023. While Fujitsu’s announcement doesn’t mention a concrete date it notes that the joint effort will operate under the Riken RQC-Fujitsu Collaboration Center till March 2025.
