Strangeworks and Entangled Networks announce partnership
(HPCWire) Strangeworks, a global leader in quantum computing software, today announced its latest joint collaboration with Entangled Networks, a quantum computing startup developing complete hardware and software solutions to enable multi-quantum processor (QPU) computation. In joining the Strangeworks Quantum Syndicate, Entangled Networks will be collaborating with Strangeworks to bring their multi-QPU compiler to market via the Strangeworks ecosystem.
Modular (multi-QPU) architectures offer a promising way to scale quantum computers and appear on most quantum hardware companies’ roadmaps. The difficulty in increasing the size of quantum processors while maintaining high quality qubits leads to the desire for modular architectures. Entangled Network’s first product, MultiQopt, provides best-in-class quantum circuit optimization for modular system architectures such as those in development by Rigetti and IonQ.
“It is absolutely amazing to partner with a team that shares our vision of a strong and collaborative quantum community,” said Aharon Brodutch, CEO of Entangled Networks. “There is no doubt that joining the Strangeworks Quantum Syndicate will enable us to reach a wide community of quantum developers who can use our software to optimize programs running on near-term hardware and enable them to plan for a future where all hardware is built on multi-QPU architectures.”
As a leading Quantum Service Provider, Strangeworks is committed to providing the latest in hardware and software capabilities to its users through its quantum-enabled platform as a service (PaaS). MultiQopt will be available in a future Backstage Pass ticket on the Strangeworks platform for select users to prepare their quantum code for future advancements in quantum processing units.
“Strangeworks’s vision has always been centered around empowering the quantum computing users of tomorrow,” said William Hurley, founder and CEO of Strangeworks. “Entangled Networks’s foresight and technical expertise has allowed them to capitalize on the future architecture of quantum computers. We look forward to making MultiQopt available on the Strangeworks Ecosystem, and giving our users the tools to be able to take advantage of modular QPUs in the near-term future.”
Stay tuned for a future announcement regarding the availability of the Entangled Networks Backstage Pass ticket in mid 2022. For additional information on the Backstage Pass program, see the frequently asked questions here.
