Startup Of The Week: SiQuance

SiQuance, a French fabless startup which launched in late November, aims to become a global leader in quantum technology by developing a quantum computer that is based on the same technological building blocks as standard silicon integrated circuits. To enable this, the company has developed a disruptive technology solution that transforms classical transistors to enable them to handle quantum bits known as qubits (the quantum equivalent of classical bits). By assembling qubits a new type of calculator can be created to solve intractable problems in fields such as as healthcare, engineering, meteorology and finance that are currently beyond the scope of classical computers.
