Amsterdam and Berkeley, 15 November 2018 - Qu&Co, which offers computational chemistry services powered by quantum-computers, today announced that it is partnering with Rigetti Computing to advance the field of quantum-computing for chemical discovery and optimization.

As QCS development partner, Qu&Co has access to Rigetti’s QCS platform for developing quantum-computational chemistry applications and to distribute them to its clients and to the broader QCS community.

Benno Broer, CEO of Qu&Co: “Quantum-computing will bring disruptive new possibilities for fast and cost-effective in-silico (computer based) discovery and optimization of chemicals, drugs and materials. The recently announced Rigetti 128 qubit processor combined with the low-latency QCS platform offers great potential for the type of large-scale ab-initio simulation methods which Qu & Co develops for its clients”

About Qu&Co
Qu&Co is a quantum-computational software developer focused on chemistry, materials science and life sciences. Our postdoc level quantum-developers work closely together with our academic partners and our clients to develop novel quantum-algorithms in fields like quantum chemistry and quantum machine learning.

Yorktown Heights and Amsterdam, 28 September 2018 - Today Qu&Co joined the growing IBM Q Network 

Launched in December 2017, the IBM Q Network is a global community of leading Fortune 500 companies, academic institutions, startups, and national research labs that explores practical applications for quantum computing. 

Qu&Co and other members contribute to the accelerating field of quantum computing and can access IBM quantum computing hardware to run experiments and algorithms, as well as collaborate with IBM researchers and other organizations in the IBM Q Network.

“IBM sees the next few years as the dawn of the commercial quantum era – a formative period when quantum computing technology and its early use cases develop rapidly. The IBM Q Network will serve as a vehicle to make quantum computing more accessible to businesses and organizations through access to the most advanced IBM Q systems and quantum ecosystem,” said Dario Gil, vice president of AI and IBM Q, IBM Research. “Working closely with our clients, together we can begin to explore the ways big and small quantum computing can address previously unsolvable problems applicable to industries such as financial services, automotive or chemistry. There will be a shared focus on discovering areas of quantum advantage that may lead to commercial, intellectual and societal benefit in the future.”
