ISRAEL - Establishing Quantum Computing Center

Arno Froese

Israel is moving ahead with plans to lay the foundation for quantum computational ability, which it has said would lead to future developments in economics, technology, security, engineering, and science.

Quantum Machines, founded in 2018, has built a hardware and software solution—Quantum Orchestration Platform (QOP)—for operating quantum systems to facilitate research and enable future breakthroughs. It also developed the QUA, a standard universal language for quantum computers that the startup says will allow researchers and scientists to write programs for varied quantum computers with one unified code.

Quantum Machines, together with a consortium of Israeli and international quantum tech companies at the center, will build a quantum computer to be made available to the commercial and research communities.

Ami Appelbaum, chairman of the Israel Innovation Authority, said the new center was “the answer to an existing strategic market failure and is part of the authority’s policy of enabling the industry to maintain its leading position at the forefront of breakthrough and disruptive technologies.”, 19 July 2022

Arno's Commentary

One would think that computer science has reached its limits. Far from it; it’s only the beginning. After asking Google to briefly explain quantum computers, there were many answers, among which was: “Quantum computing is an area of computer science that uses the principles of quantum theory. Quantum theory explains the behavior of energy and material on the atomic and subatomic levels. Quantum computing uses subatomic particles, such as electrons or photons.” The next question was who is behind quantum theory. The answer: “Quantum theory’s development began in 1900 with a presentation by Max Planck. The presentation was to the German Physical Society, in which Planck introduced the idea that energy and matter exists in individual units. Further developments by a number of scientists over the following thirty years led to the modern understanding of quantum theory.” These answers provide little to nothing for the ordinary mind, like that of this commentator. Yet it’s quite obvious quantum computing is the future.

The fact that Israel seems to be at the forefront rings alarm bells, because they are the people of the Book. They are, at least percentage wise, the world’s intellectual leaders. But based on Scripture, in the end God triumphs: “Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe” (1 Corinthians 1:20-21).
