LEESBURG, Va., Sept. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Quantum Computing Inc. (QCI) (NASDAQ: QUBT), a leader in accessible quantum computing, today announced the launch of a subscription the company offers access to its industry-leading Dirac 1 Entropy Quantum Computing (EQC) system. Dirac 1, QCI’s first commercially available photonic EQC system, takes a different approach to computing than existing quantum computing vendors and can solve business problems involving over 5,000 variables.
Customers now have web-based access to Dirac 1, the same EQC used by QCI during the public Quantum computing for automotive challenges Event hosted and organized by the BMW Group in July. In this challenge, the EQC solved a large optimization problem in six minutes and delivered a superior and workable solution. The company achieved this breakthrough result by applying this new quantum information processing technology to the BMW Vehicle Sensor Placement Challenge, a complex problem consisting of 3,854 qubits and over 500 constraints.
“QCI is excited to offer our customers access to a commercially available quantum system that can solve real-world problems and deliver business value today,” said Dave Morris, QCI’s Chief Revenue Officer. “Based on our interaction with the current fundamentals of the quantum market, we know there is a desire to unlock business value from quantum computing technology that has previously been unmet.”
QCI will offer subscriptions to the EQC at different levels; from several hours per month to a fully dedicated system, depending on customer needs. The pricing will be competitive with the subscription tiers offered by other subscription tiers on the market, but with significantly higher availability and computing power.
Dirac 1, which focuses on solving binary optimization problems, is only the first system that QCI will make commercially available. In Q4, the company plans to launch Dirac 2, which will enable customers to solve much larger integer optimization problems.
“QCI is committed to bringing innovative quantum solutions to the world,” said Robert Liscouski, CEO of QCI. “We believe our core technology has immediate commercial applications in many business areas, including quantum sensing and cybersecurity. This is just the first commercial application we are bringing to market.”
