World population chart - 8 billion

We see 8 billion reasons to build a quantum supercomputer

Our growing global footprint of 8 billion people requires new innovations to reverse climate change and address food insecurity. Throughout history, materials advancements – from the stone age to the silicon age – has shaped human progress. Scientists are on a mission to drive new discoveries that will solve the hardest problems humanity faces. This is why we are pushing the boundaries of physics to engineer the technologies that empower scientists to innovate at scale, with speed.

Nature is quantum mechanical. Quantum computers are the natural computers to simulate nature.

Using nature to solve human problems

The solution to the hardest problems facing humanity lies within the mysteries of nature and the ability of scientists to uncover them to accelerate chemistry and materials science.
