Microsoft and Classiq join forces on quantum computing for academia
Quantum software startup Classiq has announced a partnership with Microsoft to provide quantum computing solutions to academic institutions. The collaboration will focus on using Classiq’s quantum software development platform, called Quantum Language (Qulang), to help academic researchers and students in designing and optimising quantum algorithms.
Classiq and Microsoft have launched a global program for quantum software research and education dedicated to universities and educational institutions. Through this partnership, university professors, students, and researchers can use the combined offering to teach courses and conduct research on all facets of quantum computing.
The platform enables users to quickly investigate huge, complex quantum circuits as well as construct cutting-edge circuits for near-term quantum devices. Classiq’s academic program will offer students tools and knowledge they need to learn practical quantum software-development skills while providing researchers with a streamlined means of developing advanced algorithms capable of taking advantage of ever more powerful quantum hardware.
