Unveiling Microsoft’s Roadmap to a Quantum Supercomputer: Accelerating Breakthroughs in Scientific Discovery

Unlocking the immense potential of a quantum supercomputer holds the key to accurately designing new chemicals and materials, marking a transformative milestone for the industry. In a parallel to the advancements of classical supercomputers in the 20th century—progressing from vacuum tubes to transistors and integrated circuits—underlying technological breakthroughs will drive scalability and impact.

As the industry progresses, quantum hardware will evolve across three Quantum Computing Implementation Levels:

Level 1 – Foundational: Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum (NISQ) computers that operate on noisy physical qubits. Level 2 – Resilient: Quantum systems that leverage reliable logical qubits. Level 3 – Scale: Quantum supercomputers with unprecedented capabilities to solve impactful problems surpassing even the most powerful classical supercomputers.

Achieving Scale necessitates a fundamental physics breakthrough. Microsoft has accomplished this critical milestone and published peer-reviewed data in a journal by the American Physical Society, propelling us closer to realizing a quantum supercomputer. By successfully creating and controlling Majorana quasiparticles, we have paved the way for engineering a new hardware-protected qubit. This significant achievement propels us forward in reaching the Resilient Level and ultimately progressing to Scale.

A quantum supercomputer possesses the ability to solve intractable problems that are beyond the capabilities of classical computers, addressing the most complex challenges of our world. To assess its performance, a new measurement metric is imperative. Microsoft introduces the concept of reliable Quantum Operations Per Second (rQOPS), which gauges the number of reliable operations executed in a second, encompassing the system’s comprehensive performance rather than solely focusing on qubit performance. This metric ensures the assurance of correct algorithm execution, accounting for machine and network overhead.

Currently, our industry remains in the NISQ era, with quantum computers at Level 1 and an rQOPS of zero. The first quantum supercomputer will require a minimum of 1 million rQOPS and will scale to over 1 billion to solve impactful chemistry and materials science problems.

As with any innovative technology, proactive risk mitigation is essential. Microsoft’s AI principles serve as a guiding framework, ensuring rigorous measures are applied throughout the development of services such as Azure Quantum Elements and the engineering of our first quantum supercomputer. Feedback from stakeholders plays a vital role in this iterative process.

Furthermore, Microsoft is actively preparing for a quantum-safe future, working collaboratively with customers and the industry to ensure the continued security of our services during this significant transition.

The opportunity that lies ahead is colossal. Scientists and businesses will revolutionize the foundational elements of everyday products, ushering in a new era of innovation and economic growth. Together, we can compress the next 250 years of chemistry and materials science into the next 25.
