Bloomberg Markets covers the latest advancements in quantum hardware being developed by IBM, Google, Microsoft and Rigetti, and 1QBit’s early and continued leadership in the development of industry applications that can harness the increasing capabilities of quantum computation.
“Landon Downs, president and co-founder of 1QBit, says it’s now becoming possible to unlock the computational power of the quantum world. “This has huge implications for producing new materials or creating new drugs, because we can actually move from a paradigm of discovery to a new era of quantum design,” he says in an email.
Rigetti, whose company is building hybrid quantum-classical machines, says one moonshot use of quantum computing could be to model catalysts that remove carbon and nitrogen from the atmosphere—and thereby help fix global warming.”
