YC-Backed Rigetti Computing Raises $2.5M To Create Commercial Quantum Systems

TechCrunch, August 2014

Many companies are attempting to incorporate quantum computing into commercial hardware. Rigetti Computing wants to be a leader in this effort, providing consistent performance improvements through an ANSYS-powered prototyping process. The major issues with quantum computing include unpredictable performance and high costs. ANSYS solutions help Rigetti rapidly test changes without having to build new circuitry with each iteration. This advancement could allow computers to perform certain kinds of operations immeasurably faster than traditional processors.
