Rigetti launches ‘only quantum first cloud computing platform’ and $1m prize

Quantum circuit maker Rigetti has launched Quantum Cloud Services (QCS), which it claims to be the only “quantum-first cloud computing platform”.

The platform integrates the company’s quantum processors with classical computing infrastructure to deliver the “application-level performance needed to achieve quantum advantage”.

Quantum advantage is the term for the point at which quantum computers are able to solve problems faster and cheaper than their classical counterparts.

“Ultimately, quantum advantage will be reached over and over again in new markets and new domains, changing the ways in which problems are solved across industries,” company founder Chad Rigetti wrote in a blog post last week.

In August the company announced plans to deploy a 128-qubit, classical integrated system within a year.
