Tel Aviv, Israel and Reading, UK – December 5, 2023 – Classiq, a leading quantum software company, and Oxford Quantum Circuits (OQC), a pioneering quantum computing hardware company, today announced a partnership that aims to make advanced quantum computing more accessible and streamlined for users across research and industry.
Classiq provides an end-to-end quantum software platform that automates the process of developing quantum software and executing it on quantum processors. The company’s proprietary technology automatically synthesizes optimized quantum circuits from functional models, high-level quantum code or via Pyomo integration.
OQC is focused on developing and building enterprise-ready quantum computers based on superconducting qubits. The company is committed to working with the best software partners to ensure ease of use and seamless implementation for its quantum systems.
By partnering, Classiq and OQC will offer users a smooth flow including modelling, debugging, automatic quantum circuit synthesis, circuit optimisation and execution on OQC’s cutting-edge quantum hardware. Classiq’s platform will be expanded to support executing algorithms optimised for OQC’s quantum processors, providing developers more options to select the right quantum backend for their needs, including the recently announced next-gen OQC Toshiko machine.
As part of this collaboration, they will partner to further integrate their respective technologies with data centers and HPC (high-performance computing).
“We’re excited to partner with OQC and help make their innovative quantum systems easily accessible to users through our software,” said Nir Minerbi, CEO and co-founder of Classiq. “Together, we invite quantum developers to experience a streamlined workflow from design all the way to state-of-the-art hardware execution.”
“Classiq’s software helps unlock the power of quantum by abstracting away complexity for developers. We are thrilled to be partnering with them to ensure our hardware can be used seamlessly by a broad quantum community to achieve real-world impact,” said Ilana Wisby, CEO of OQC.
This collaboration reflects both companies’ commitment to advancing the quantum ecosystem by bringing together world-class quantum software and hardware. The joint solution will empower users across industries to realize the benefits of quantum computing and build the quantum future.
Classiq Technologies, the leading quantum software company, provides an all-encompassing software platform (IDE, compiler and OS) with a single point of entry into quantum computing, from algorithm design to execution. Tailored to all levels of developer proficiency, Classiq aims to democratise access to quantum computing with software that equips customers to take full advantage of the quantum computing revolution. A low-code development environment that automates quantum programming ensures that a broader range of talents, including those with backgrounds in AI, ML and linear algebra, can harness quantum computing without requiring deep, specialised knowledge of how to program quantum computer hardware. Classiq also works closely with advanced computation hardware providers providing software for use with quantum computers, HPC and quantum simulators. Backed by powerful investors such as HPE, HSBC, Samsung, Intesa Sanpaolo and NTT, Classiq’s world-class team of scientists and engineers has distilled decades of quantum expertise into its groundbreaking software development platform.
