Quantum computing taps into the unusual behavior of atomic and sub-atomic particles to perform far more complex calculations at a massively increased speed compared to today’s computers. Errors are the main barrier. Alice & Bob’s unique technology of self-correcting superconducting quantum bit, the cat qubit, promises a much simpler path to fault-tolerant and universal gate-based quantum computing. The company has already demonstrated experimental results surpassing those of technological giants like Google or Amazon.
The French scale-up specializes in cat qubits, superconducting qubits with built-in error correction that drastically lower the hardware requirements in quantum computers. Its researchers have demonstrated that using cat qubits may reduce the number of qubits required to run landmark quantum algorithms by up to 60 times.
