We previously reported on the announcement of Quantum Computing Inc’s (QCI) Qatalyst constrained optimization software last February. It is now available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a Software as a Service (SaaS) offering. The Qatalyst software allows an end user to describe their problem at a high level as a constrained optimization problem and not worry about the complexities of learning how to program a quantum computer. Another advantage of the software is that it provides users with a broad choice of hardware platforms for running their problem to see which one gives them the best result. The Qatalyst software can be used with pure classical computers using classical optimization algorithms or through Amazon Braket it can be run on quantum computers from D-Wave, Rigetti, and IonQ. Additional information about this announcement can be found in a news release issued by QCI here.
