Intel’s news source for media, analysts and everyone curious about the company.

Quantum computing is a new computing paradigm that harnesses the power of quantum mechanics to deliver the ultimate in parallel computing. It has the potential to tackle problems that conventional computing – even the world’s most powerful supercomputers – can’t quite handle. While this technology will be transformational for areas such as drug development, logistics optimization, and natural disaster prediction, we need to overcome many challenges – and pass many mile markers – on this incredible journey of discovery before it can be ready for mainstream business adoption and deliver broad societal impact. Intel is advancing its vision of quantum practicality in collaboration with leading industry and academic partners to bring quantum from the lab to commercial reality. Intel’s quantum computing research spans the complete stack – from qubits and algorithms research to control electronics and interconnects—required to make practical quantum computers for real-world applications a reality.

Intel Labs Day 2020

At Intel Labs Day 2020, Intel spotlighted research initiatives across multiple domains where its researchers are striving for orders of magnitude advancements to shape the next decade of computing. Themed “In Pursuit of 1000X: Disruptive Research for the Next Decade in Computing,” the event featured several emerging areas including integrated photonics, neuromorphic computing, quantum computing, confidential computing and machine programming. Together, these domains represent pioneering efforts to address critical challenges in the future of computing, and Intel’s leadership role in pursuing breakthroughs to address them.
