First ever large-scale quantum computer to be built in the UK: RAZOR

In the race to find a vaccine or treatment for COVID-19 some have suggested that the power of quantum computing could be a game-changer.

A previous RAZOR episode profiled professor Winfried Hensinger, who had built a quantum computer prototype in his lab at the University of Sussex.

It seems that COVID-19 certainly didn't slow down his team's work and they have just announced their new company, Universal Quantum, has raised $4.7 million in investments to build the world's first large-scale quantum computer in the UK.
