(CIO.IndianTimes) Microsoft is making its Azure platform for quantum computing available for select developers and enterprises as a limited preview.
At its Build developer conference, the company said on Tuesday this week that developers will be able to take advantage of nearly two decades of quantum research infused into every layer of the Azure Quantum stack.
The developers will get access to an open ecosystem of diverse quantum software, hardware and solutions from Microsoft and its partners 1QBit, Honeywell, IonQ, and QCI. They will have an ability to have quantum impact with pre-built solutions that run on classical computers (what Microsoft refers to as quantum-inspired solutions).
Researchers at Microsoft are currently busy writing the software to build a scalable computer that will help humanity unlock solutions to problems in areas such as clean energy, global warming, materials design and much more – including solving the mysteries of our universe.
