Two companies announced this week that they have joined the IBM Quantum Network. The first is ColdQuanta, a developer of cold atom quantum technology with headquarters in Boulder, Colorado and offices in Madison, Wisconsin and Oxford, UK. They will be integrating IBM’s open source Qiskit quantum software development platform for use with ColdQuanta’s upcoming “Hilbert” 100 qubit computer scheduled to be launched in the second half of this year. You can view ColdQuanta’s news release with additional details here. The second is Classiq, a Tel-Aviv based company creating what they call an algorithm design platform. Their software synthesizes high-level models models into optimized quantum circuits and is intended to make it much easier for end users who are not quantum experts to take advantage of a quantum computer’s capabilities. Classiq has made their algorithm design platform compatible with Qiskit and will offer it to other members of IBM’s Quantum Network. You can view a Medium article from Classiq here.
