Quantum Computing

Our Purpose

From a quantum perspective, the world looks very different. And, if we can successfully harness quantum properties for new technologies and industries, so too will the future.

Quantum computers are needed to tackle problems much faster than any conventional computer, and thus, enable discovery that has not yet been possible. The emerging technological revolution of quantum computing, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning could be used to exponentially reshape our world across countless sectors, such as healthcare, finance and cybersecurity. 

The Opportunity

Quantum science and engineering have the potential to revolutionize computation capabilities by making certain types of classically intractable problems solvable. These capabilities could especially impact how science, technology and industry approach challenges involving a daunting number of variables and potential outcomes — like simulating chemical interactions, predicting the impact of diseases based on simulations, optimizing logistics, or sorting through massive datasets. As a pioneer in the very early days of the semiconductor industry, Robert Noyce would have appreciated the promise that quantum computing provides today.
