Australia’s Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre in Perth will deploying Nvidia’s CUDA Quantum computing platform at its National Supercomputing and Quantum Computing Innovation Hub. This platform is Nvidia's open-source hybrid quantum computing platform that uses quantum simulation tools and capabilities to program hybrid CPU, GPU, and QPU systems. 

“High-performance simulation is essential for researchers to address the biggest challenges in quantum computing — from algorithm discovery and device design to the invention of powerful methods for error correction, calibration and control,” said Tim Costa, director of HPC and quantum computing at Nvidia. “CUDA Quantum, together with the Nvidia Grace Hopper Superchip, allows innovators such as Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre to achieve these essential breakthroughs and accelerate the timeline to useful quantum-integrated supercomputing.”

Mark Stickells, executive director at the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre, added, “Pawsey Supercomputing Centre’s research and test-bed facility is helping to advance scientific exploration for all of Australia as well as the world. Nvidia’s CUDA Quantum platform will allow our scientists to push the boundaries of what’s possible in quantum computing research.”
