Classiq Joins the IBM Quantum Network


Tel-Aviv, Israel — May 25, 2021 — Classiq, creators of the Quantum Algorithm Design Platform, announced today that they have joined the IBM Quantum Network. In addition, Classiq’s algorithm design platform is now compatible with IBM’s Qiskit, offering an integrated hardware/software solution to quantum computing teams.

The IBM Quantum Network brings together a diverse group of more than 140 startups, universities, research labs, and Fortune 500 companies including the University of Oxford, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, ExxonMobil, Accenture, and others working to advance ‎quantum computing and explore practical applications.

As part of the IBM Quantum Network, organizations have access to IBM’s quantum expertise and resources, open-source Qiskit software and developer tools, as well as cloud-based access to IBM’s Quantum hardware. IBM is leading the field with a 65-qubit machine available today with a roadmap to a 1,000+ qubit system, targeted for 2023.

Classiq’s quantum algorithm design platform helps teams model and synthesize quantum circuits that were previously impossible to create. Instead of laboring at the gate level, quantum developers that use Classiq’s high-level language to describe the desired algorithm as well as their important constraints. Classiq’s patented engine synthesizes this high-level model into an optimized quantum circuit. Furthermore, quantum teams use the Classiq platform to analyze, debug and reuse quantum code, dramatically speeding up the design process and enabling the integration of domain experts into the quantum teams.

According to Classiq Co-Founder & CEO, Nir Minerbi, “Classiq’s inclusion in the IBM Quantum Network positions us to work together in pushing the envelope of what’s possible with quantum algorithms. By offering our unique code synthesis platform to IBM Quantum Network members and partners, we can more quickly explore previously-impossible quantum goals.”

Nir Minerbi is the CEO of Classiq, a quantum software startup that builds the top layer of the quantum software stack.
