(ColdQuanta) ColdQuanta, the leader in Cold Atom Quantum Technology, announced it has joined the IBM Quantum Network. In addition to joining the Network, ColdQuanta will also integrate with Qiskit, an open source software development kit (SDK) for working with quantum computers developed by IBM. ColdQuanta’s customers can optimize their programs for ColdQuanta’s groundbreaking quantum computer (code name “Hilbert”), a 100 qubit quantum computer that will be released later this year. Together, the companies will pursue joint development opportunities with the goal of accelerating the adoption of quantum technologies.
The IBM Quantum Network is a global community of more than 140 Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, academic institutions and research labs working to advance quantum computing and explore practical applications. Together, members of the Network and IBM Quantum teams are researching and exploring how quantum computing will help a variety of industries and disciplines including finance, energy, chemistry, and materials science, among many others.
“We welcome ColdQuanta to our growing network of customers and partners working to accelerate commercial adoption of quantum computing,” said Aparna Prabhakar, Vice President, IBM Quantum Partner Ecosystem. “We look forward to working together on real-world applications across a wide range of industries, a key step toward growing the quantum computing community and advancing the technology.”
ColdQuanta is at the forefront of the rapidly growing quantum industry, providing Cold Atom Quantum Technology for a broad set of quantum solutions across computing, sensing and networking. The company’s breakthrough Cold Atom Quantum Technology, which cools atoms to a few millionths of a degree above absolute zero using lasers, serves as the foundation for these applications. ColdQuanta’s forthcoming 100 qubit quantum computer will be one of the world’s largest and most scalable at its launch in the second half of 2021.
