Chinese company builds quantum computer for commercial use

Origin Quantum, a Chinese company, has created a 24-qubit quantum computer named Wuyuan for commercial use, making China the third country to achieve this after Canada and the U.S.

China has become the third country – after Canada and the USA – where a company has developed a complete computer system using quantum technology for commercial use, according to South China Morning Post. Developed by the Origin Quantum startup, the 24-qubit quantum computer named Wuyuan is based on superconducting chip technology and is said to have been delivered to an unknown user more than a year ago. While not China’s first quantum computer, Wuyuan is considered to be the first such computer built for commercial purposes in the country.
