PRESS RELEASE — ColdQuanta, the leader in Cold Atom Quantum Technology, today announced it will make its forthcoming quantum computer, Hilbert, available in early access to members of the Strangeworks Backstage Pass program with general availability to follow. Strangeworks is a quantum enabled Platform as a Service (PaaS) for subject matter experts to bring quantum solutions to their problems. Scientists, researchers, software developers, companies and enthusiasts from around the globe will be able to easily access Hilbert to initiate and collaborate on projects, eliminating barriers to widespread quantum adoption.
Strangeworks provides users with simplified quantum hardware access, pre-built and pre-tested managed quantum services, and the ability to integrate with existing enterprise applications in order to help users be positioned for quantum advantage, when it arrives. The Strangeworks community will be able to harness ColdQuanta’s Hilbert, a universal and scalable gate-based quantum computing platform, for applications including quantum chemistry, optimization, logistics and machine learning. Hilbert’s qubits are individual atoms cooled by lasers to almost absolute zero, enabling a powerful combination of scalability, connectivity, and coherence time. Despite these atoms being some of the coldest objects in the universe, Hilbert operates at room temperature.
“Strangeworks remains on a mission to make quantum computing as easy and accessible as possible as we deliver the promise of quantum to as many people as possible,” said William Hurley, founder and CEO of Strangeworks. “ColdQuanta has been at the forefront of quantum technologies with its broad portfolio of products and technical leadership. We welcome them into the Strangeworks Quantum Syndicate as we partner to unlock new doors for researchers, developers and quantum enthusiasts from around the world.”
“ColdQuanta’s roots in world-renowned universities and research centers has provided us with a collaborative approach to quantum innovation since the beginning,” said Paul Lipman, President of Hilbert, ColdQuanta’s quantum computing business unit. “Hilbert’s availability via Strangeworks is an important step in providing broad access to users so they can begin putting quantum to work to tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges impacting humanity.”
Applications to the ColdQuanta Backstage Pass ticket are now open via the program page with successful applicants able to take advantage of the Hilbert system in early 2022. For additional information on the Backstage Pass Program see frequently asked questions here.
