“With our commercial partner Zapata we have established a research partnership to jointly develop quantum computing algorithms for industrial applications. Zapata creates transformative quantum-classical approaches to some of our most critical and complex problems .

Their software aims to maximize what’s possible with quantum in the near-term, but also leaves room for the hardware to improve over time. They are visionary pioneers, but grounded in the reality of complex enterprise architectures.”
