Collaboration will enable users of IQM’s quantum processing units to program hybrid quantum-classical applications with NVIDIA CUDA Quantum, an open source platform
DENVER and ESPOO. Finland, November 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — IQM Quantum Computers (IQM), a global leader in building quantum computers, today announced a collaboration with NVIDIA to advance future hybrid quantum applications through Nvidia Quantum CUDAan open source platform for integrating and programming quantum processing units into a single system.
As part of this collaboration, users of IQM’s quantum processing units in enterprises and research institutions can program and develop the next generation of hybrid quantum-classical applications with NVIDIA CUDA Quantum.
The collaboration aims to accelerate the development and use of quantum computing in various applications, fostering innovation, collaboration and potential breakthroughs in science and industry.
Leading institutions, such as the CSC – IT Center for Science and the VTT Technical Research Center of Finlandplans to use CUDA Quantum on VTT’s 5-qubit quantum computer developed in a co-innovation partnership by IQM and VTT
IQM’s vision is to make the integration of quantum and classical systems immediately accessible to scientists and experts. The future is quantum-accelerated supercomputing: quantum computers and supercomputers working together to solve the biggest problems, including machine learning, cybersecurity, drug and chemical research.
Commenting on the announcement made to SC Conference 2023 today in Denverresponsible for strategic partnerships at IQM Quantum Computers, Dr. Pierre Edersaid: “The collaboration with NVIDIA is a strategic step that will help accelerate the progression of potential use cases. It provides our new and existing users with the ability to use NVIDIA’s high-quality software framework to explore quantum solutions in their applications with our quantum technology. material. We will continue to provide the best tools available to our users to increase quantum adoption.
“Integrated quantum supercomputing has the potential to solve grand challenges in many scientific fields,” said Tim Costa, Director of High Performance Computing and Quantum at NVIDIA. “NVIDIA’s collaboration with IQM will enable researchers to advance the state of the art in coupling quantum with GPU supercomputing, opening the door to countless breakthroughs.”
