Our Mission: To apply breakthroughs in computation to machine intelligence and optimization science through a widely accessible, hardware-agnostic software platform.
At 1QBit, we believe that quantum technologies will form the next pillar of computational progress. We are just beginning to harness the properties of the quantum universe to assist our most advanced computing hardware, but we already know this will be a revolution unlike any previous evolution in computing design. In the short term, quantum coprocessors will be used for complex problem solving. In the near future, processors will harness the properties of quantum physics by design. Our research, services, and technology are focused on leveraging the optimal use of computing power at all points along this trajectory.
1QBit is guided by a strong set of values that we’ve carried since our company’s inception. As we’ve grown, we’ve maintained our focus on five fundamental principles:
1QBit was founded by a group of intellectually curious entrepreneurs and researchers during the early stages of commercial quantum computing. We recognized the possibilities quantum computers were about to unlock, and embarked on building the expertise and technology required to connect industry problems to this new hardware. Over the past four years, 1QBit has grown into a globally respected team of experts dedicated to taking quantum computing from theory to application, and continues to attract global talent in mathematics, engineering, physics, chemistry, operations research, and software development.
The World Economic Forum named 1QBit a global Technology Pioneer in recognition of our leadership and ability to impact the world. Together with our partners in industry and academia, we are fulfilling this honour by building the foundations of the quantum information age.
Today, 1QBit continues to partner with the world’s most advanced hardware providers and industry leading organizations to redefine their intractable problems using a quantum lens.
"1QBit is paving the way for quantum technology: it's not enough to build the hardware; you have to know how to do something useful with it."
