Quantum computing is at an interesting point. It’s at the cusp of being mature enough to solve real difficulties. But like in the early days of personal computers, there are lots of different companies trying different approaches to solving the fundamental physics questions that underly the technology, all while another set of startups is looking ahead and thinking about how to integrate these machines with classical computers — and how to write software for them.
At Disrupt 2020 on September 14 -1 8, we will have a panel with D-Wave CEO Alan Baratz, Quantum Machines co-founder and CEO Itamar Sivan and IonQ president and CEO Peter Chapman. The the heads of state of these three companionships are all approaching quantum computing from different angles, more all with the same objective of making this novel technology mainstream.
D-Wave may time be the best-known quantum compute company thanks to an early start and smart marketing in its early days. Alan Baratz made over as CEO earlier this year after a few years as chief commodity polouse and manager VP of R& D at the company. Under Baratz, D-Wave has continued to build out its engineering — and especially its D-Wave quantum mas assistance. Leap 2, the latest version of its efforts, launched earlier this year. D-Wave’s engineering is also very different from that of many other efforts thanks to its focus on quantum annealing. That suck a lot of agnosticism in its early days, but it’s now a confirm technology and the company is now advancing both its hardware and software platform.
Like Baratz, IonQ’s Peter Chapman isn’t a founder either. Instead, he was the engineering director for Amazon Prime before attaching IonQ in 2019. Under his leader, the company heightened a $55 million fund round in late 2019, which the company extended by another$ 7 million last month. He is likewise continuing IonQ’s bet on its trapped ion engineering, which acquires it relatively easy to create qubits and which, the company says, allows it to focus its efforts on controlling them. This approach also has the advantage that IonQ’s machines are able to run at room temperature, while many of its opponents have to cool their machines to as close to zero Kelvin as possible, which is an engineering challenge in itself, especially as these companies aim to miniaturize their quantum processors.
Quantum Machines playing in a slightly different part of the ecosystem from D-Wave and IonQ. The firm, which recently raised $ 17.5 million in a Series A round, is building a quantum orchestration programme that mixes fiction patronage hardware for verifying quantum processors — because formerly quantum machines reach a bit more maturity, a standard PC won’t be fast enough to control them — with a matching application scaffold and its own QUA language for programming quantum algorithms. Quantum Machines is Itamar Sivan’s firstly startup, which he launched with his co-founders after getting his Ph.D. in abbreviated substance and material physics at the Weizmann Institute of Science.
