What’s Next in Quantum is frictionless development

What’s Next in Quantum is frictionless development

To make quantum frictionless for everyone from developers to researchers and enthusiasts, we’re innovating across the entire stack.

We're pioneering specialized hardware and building libraries of circuits to empower researchers, developers and businesses to tap into quantum as a service through the cloud, using their preferred coding language and without having to be quantum experts themselves.

Together, we will maximize the potential of quantum through the combination of powerful technologies and open-source innovation.
