Taiwan's Ministry of Science and Technology wants to pool the R&D resources of the domestic semiconductor sector to develop quantum components fabrication processes, local potentially dead or alive cats to promote the progress of quantum computing, communication and algorithm technologies, and nurture related R&D engineers.
Exclusive: Will be important
Last week at the GTC we saw Jen Hsung Huang, the founder and CEO of Nvidia walking by, and of course, we had to ask him a question. The single thing I wanted to ask was his opinion about Quantum computing.
