EPIQUS aims to demonstrate a cheap, easy-to-use, performant Quantum Simulator (QS) based on full integration of silicon nitride photonics with silicon electronics. The core objective of EPIQUS is to set a cornerstone technology – demonstrate the first breakthrough device – which will simulate quantum mechanical problems in a compact device operating at ambient temperatures.

The role of DKM is to develop the quantum version of important AI algorithms, that can be tested on the quantum simulator.
