A new and hybrid approach
Most quantum computing prototypes today are small and susceptible to errors with little evidence for broad business advantage. Utility-scale gate-based quantum computers with millions of qubits are 5-10 years away. The path to useful quantum computing clearly requires going beyond finer engineering: a reimagination of approach and technology is necessary. That's why we chose a hybrid analog and digital approach: analog quantum computing that can deliver value today, followed by high-performance digital mode that provides the ultimate flexibility.
Delivering value and utility at each step
QuEra is pioneering a utility-focused approach, to deliver value for customers today while preparing them for the quantum future. Starting from large systems engineered for a specific purpose, we introduce additional functionality at each development stage.
Solving meaningful problems today in the analog processing mode
We designed our first machine to operate in the analog processing mode. Computations are continuous transformations of the internal quantum state. This way, gate errors don’t pile up and precise control over a large number of qubits becomes feasible. This delivers immediate value for a broad set of problems. We are working on adding universal gate-based digital processing mode, offering customers the best of both worlds.

Delivering value today and promising directions to commercial advantage tomorrow
Our processors provide a rich platform for analog Hamiltonian simulations. This is an important tool in fundamental physics, to help us understand the phase transitions of materials, dynamics of particle collision and more.
Remarkably, many real-life problems can be translated to the functionality native to Aquila. Demonstrated performance improvements in optimization suggest that Aquila’s impact may reach across a wide range of industries.
Large entangled states generate probability distributions that don’t exist in the classical world. These are a rich resource for many algorithms in machine learning, forecasting and encryption.
