The STFC, which is a government department, announced it was embarking on creating a new “£210m centre” in a joint venture with IBM for artificial intelligen­ce and quantum computing research over five years.

It was not clear at the time whether the centre would be establishe­d within existing facilities or would include fresh constructi­on, and nor do the freshlyfil­ed plans clarify whether the supercompu­ting centre is connected to the IBM joint venture.

STFC said it was unable to comment.
