EeroQ bets on helium for its quantum chip design

It’s still early days for quantum computing, but we’re currently seeing rapid improvements in the underlying hardware and software foundations for this new computing paradigm. Just like du

IBM hopes a new error mitigation technique will help it get to quantum advantage

It felt like for a long time, the quantum computing industry avoided talking about “quantum advantage” or “quantum supremacy,” the point where quantum computers can solve probl

UK’s Oxford Quantum Circuits snaps up $47M Series A for ‘QaaS’

Quantum computing has been making quantum leaps of progress in the last several years — going from theoretical concept to multiple testing environments, to help organizations prep for a time whe

Amazon extends its quantum efforts with a focus on networking

Amazon today announced a new effort in bringing quantum computing to its cloud — at least in the long term. The company today launched the AWS Center for Quantum Networking, a new research effor

D-Wave launches a first prototype of its next-gen annealing quantum computer

D-Wave made a name for itself with its early annealing quantum computers and even though the company recently announced its efforts to also build a superconducting gate-model quantum computer, it&#821

Quantum Machines acquires QDevil to build out its full-stack quantum orchestration platform

Quantum Machines, the well-funded Israeli startup that specializes in building control systems for quantum computers, today announced that it has acquired QDevil, a well-known Danish company that spec

QuantWare will build you a custom 25-qubit quantum processor in 30 days

It’s still very early days for quantum computing, but even so, we’re already seeing early signs of hardware and an ecosystem that’s starting to resemble the classical computing space

Australian startup QuintessenceLabs grabs $25M to scale quantum-safe cybersecurity solutions

As computing power increases exponentially, the ability to secure our data against brute force and other types of attacks gets more complicated, with the scale and sophistication of cyberattacks conti

D-Wave plans to build a gate-model quantum computer

For more than 20 years, D-Wave has been synonymous with quantum annealing. Its early bet on this technology allowed it to become the world’s first company to sell quantum computers, but that als

Dutch startup QphoX raises €2M to connect quantum computers with a quantum modem

When eventually they become a working reality, quantum computers won’t be of much value if they simply sit there on their own. Just like the internet, the value is in the network. But right now ther

Microsoft’s Azure Quantum platform is now in public preview

Microsoft today announced that Azure Quantum, its cloud-based platform for using quantum hardware and software tools from partners like Honeywell Quantum Solutions, IonQ, 1QBit and others, is now in p

IonQ plans to launch a rack-mounted quantum computer for data centers in 2023

Quantum computing startup IonQ today announced its road map for the next few years — following a similar move from IBM in September — and it’s quite ambitious, to say the least. At o

Quantum photonics startup Nu Quantum raises £2.1M from Amadeus Capital Partners

For quantum cryptography and simulation to become real, the technology requires high-performance light-emitting and light-detecting components that operate at the single-photon level and at ambient te

D-Wave launches its 5,000+ qubit Advantage system

D-Wave today announced the launch of its new Advantage quantum computers. These new systems, with over 5,000 qubits and 15-way qubit connectivity, are now available in the company’s Leap cloud c

The race to building a fully functional quantum stack

As we approach the age of quantum computing, it is no longer a question of ‘if,’ but rather one of ‘when’ this technology finally matures and ‘who’ will lead this emerging industry.

Rigetti raises $79M Series C for its quantum computing platform

Rigetti Computing, the quantum computing startup that is challenging industry heavyweights like IBM, Microsoft and D-Wave, today announced that it has closed a $79 million Series C funding round. The

Hear how three startups are approaching quantum computing differently at TC Disrupt 2020

Quantum computing is at an interesting point. It’s at the cusp of being mature enough to solve real problems. But like in the early days of personal computers, there are lots of different compan
