On 5–6 November, CERN hosted a first-of-its kind workshop on quantum computing in high-energy physics.
The spotlight was on the modernisation of the I/O subsystem, parallelisation, new graphics, multivariate tools and an interface to the Python language.
There will be no universal quantum computer on which we will be able to compile our C++ code and then magically run it faster, explains Federico Carminati.
It will receive $5 million per year for a period of five years.
On 28 June, 200 servers from the CERN computing centre were donated to Kathmandu University in Nepal.
