Rigetti to Bring Quantum Machine Learning Applications to Strangeworks Platform
AUSTIN, Texas and BERKELEY, Calif., Dec. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Strangeworks, Inc. (“Strangeworks”) and Rigetti Computing, Inc. (“Rigetti”) (Nasdaq: RGTI) today announced Strangeworks’ commitment to make available on its platform two new quantum machine learning (QML) applications from Rigetti. These new QML applications are Rigetti’s quantum kernel and quantum convolutional “quanvolutional” neural network methods, which are optimized specifically for Rigetti quantum computers and are designed to advance the development of applications related to classification and regression problems. These QML applications are expected to initially be available exclusively on the Strangeworks platform in early 2023.
The applications are planned to be made available through Rigetti’s on-demand, pay-as-you-go access model via Strangeworks. This on-demand access to Rigetti systems has been enabled by tightly integrating Rigetti’s quantum processing units with the Strangeworks platform. The integration has also resulted in higher performance of Rigetti systems on Strangeworks by enabling lower overall program latency and native Quil programming language support.
“Rigetti is excited to continue its close partnership with Strangeworks and make its first reference applications available to users through their platform,” said Eric Ostby, VP of Product. “We believe that quantum machine learning applications continue to be promising candidates for quantum advantage research.”
“These new applications will accelerate businesses' ability to create valuable quantum applications by enabling them to bring Rigetti quantum capabilities to their classification, modeling, and detection problems,” said whurley, Founder and CEO of Strangeworks. “Today’s announcement deepens the partnership between Rigetti and Strangeworks, and advances Strangeworks’ goal to make access to quantum applications simple, flexible and performance-driven.”
More about applications and the Strangeworks platform:
These applications are planned to be available on the Strangeworks platform in early 2023. The quantum kernel method is planned to be available to all users on the Strangeworks platform, while the quanvolutional neural network method is planned to be available only to select customers and partners.
Rigetti has also announced its intent to join the Strangeworks Backstage Pass program, with plans to offer up to $10,000 of sponsored credits to each approved user. Rigetti plans to prioritize users with an interest in quantum machine learning for enterprise applications, including but not limited to those interested in leveraging Rigetti’s quanvolutional neural network mthod.
