"As we argued a few weeks ago, the cloud is where quantum competition gets real. With all of the major quantum players (and it is a slim set of contenders) stacked up for remote access from a widening array of users, the stage is set for a new wave of quantum applications driven by early developers.
One key to make quantum innovations based on cloud platforms active for the rest of the world is to open source new algorithms and approaches to interfacing with quantum systems. This is happening in quantum computing languages and we expect this to transition into more use cases and real world applications, especially after today’s news from quantum systems maker D-Wave."
