(TheRegister.co.uk) D-Wave Systems has extended the availability of its Leap branded cloud-based quantum computing service to Europe and Japan. With Leap, researchers will be granted free access to a live D-Wave 2000Q machine with 2,000 quantum bits, or qubits.
Developers will also be free to use the company’s Quantum Application Environment, launched last year, which enables them to write quantum applications in Python.
Each D-Wave 2000Q normally costs around $15m.
