Effectively responding to the COVID-19 pandemic requires a collaborative and global effort across diverse organizations, including both private and public institutions.
To help Burnaby’s D-Wave Systems is offering free access to its quantum systems via the Leap quantum cloud service for anyone working on responses to the COVID-19 crisis.
This initiative comes in response to a request from the Canadian government for solutions to the pandemic across industries.
Unfettered, free access to D-Wave’s quantum computers via Leap is available immediately to anyone working on COVID-19 response in the 35 countries across North America, Europe, and Asia where access is available to the Leap quantum cloud service.
Joining the effort are partners and customers including CINECA, DENSO, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Kyocera Corporation, KYOCERA Communication Systems, MDR/Cliffhanger, Menten AI, NEC Solution Innovators Ltd., OTI Lumionics, QAR Lab at LMU Munich, Sigma-i, Tohoku University, and Volkswagen, who will provide access to engineering teams with expertise on how to use the quantum computer and formulate problems, as well as help in developing solutions.
By providing free access to Leap’s quantum processing resources and quantum expertise, D-Wave and its partners hope to contribute to finding solutions to the COVID-19 crisis.
Through this new initiative, anyone developing responses to the pandemic can immediately get unlimited, commercial contract-level access to the recently launched Leap 2.
Leap 2 includes the hybrid solver service designed to bring both classical and quantum resources to quickly and precisely solve highly complex problems with up to 10,000 fully connected variables.
