Our partner at Sorbonne University in Paris, led by Julien Laurat, succeeded in building the first converter between two different types of quantum-bit encodings—an equivalent to converters for classical information, but targeted to different types of quantum data. This high-quality rewriting of information shows the way towards bridging the gap between the many different platforms competing in the race for quantum computing and may enable the interconnectivity of future networks. This experiment demonstrates exactly what the ShoQC project is about. For more information and details, see:
