The hub will collaborate with the University of Ottawa and the Université de Sherbrooke to study quantum-based algorithms for acceleration of processing in telecom networks and distributed quantum computing. Ericsson Canada’s researchers will work with post-doctoral fellows at the universities and will provide telecom and networking competence and facilities for this research. In additions, the Mitacs organization will also support this effort through internships and professional skills development. Interns will work with researchers at Ericsson Canada and the universities. A press release from Ericsson announcing the establishment of this new Quantum Research Hub can be found here.
