Charles Marcus, professor at the University of Copenhagen, praised the Dutch approach to research into quantum computing. Marcus, also scientific director of the Microsoft Quantum Lab in the Danish capital, said he was impressed by the Dutch ecosystem. Instead of competing, there is good cooperation here. According to Marcus, quantum technology has enormous potential, but it is very difficult to build these types of computers. Qblox’s “control stack” is a great discovery, says Marcus.
This year, the Netherlands is participating in the CES for the fifth time. Almost a hundred entrepreneurs are present, twice as many as last year. The delegation is headed by Prince Constantijn of Orange. As a Special Envoy for TechLeap.NL, he opened the Holland Pavilion. He outlined the significance of startups for the economy. In every sector, a start-up emerges that grows into a formidable competitor to traditional market leaders. This happens, for example, in the car industry and space travel.
