"We?ve been investing in projects that advance our understanding of quantum computing along with its applications and implementation," said Douglas Carmean, Architect, Quantum Architectures and Computation Microsoft Research.
"We are focusing on exploring theoretical and experimental approaches to creating quantum computers, designing software, hardware and other elements that support our research and direction. In this process, we are engaging with partners that have critical expertise, such as Rambus, to build new types of computing platforms."
The companies did not disclose specific details of the project. They just said that they would pool resources to further examine potential architectures that can enhance memory capabilities in various settings to improve overall system performance.
