QunaSys’ technology enables researchers to perform chemical calculations using quantum computers in the cloud
(SemiEngineering) QunaSys has launched a technology that enables researchers to perform chemical calculations using quantum computers in the cloud.
The company has announced the launch of the cloud version of Qamuy, which is supported by Amazon Web Services Japan. Qamuy is a software technology that allows researchers to perform chemical calculations using quantum computers.
Developers can perform chemical calculations over real quantum computers accessible through Amazon Braket, a quantum computing service designed to help speed up scientific research and software development for quantum computing. Amazon Braket enables researchers at universities and national labs to perform experimentation with different quantum hardware technologies in one place.
The objective of computational quantum chemistry software from QunaSys is to calculate physical properties, such as interactions, dynamics of molecules and reaction rates based on the principles of quantum mechanics. Qamuy provides an easy-to-use interface for chemistry experts to test quantum algorithms regardless of their quantum computing expertise. Applications include novel drugs, catalyst materials and batteries.
The cloud version of Qamuy allows “anyone to access quantum computers and perform chemistry calculations,” said Tennin Yan, CEO of QunaSys. “We believe we can advance real chemistry industrial use cases over existing quantum computers. Qamuy will gradually be accessible over the existing quantum computing platforms and QunaSys will continue to increase its algorithm library.”
