Jumpstart quantum application development with Leap:

  • Free access: free, immediate access to a D-Wave 2000Q quantum computer
  • Familiar software: Ocean software development kit (SDK) with suite of open source Python tools and templates
  • Hands-on coding: interactive examples and Jupyter notebooks with live code, equations, visualizations, and narrative text
  • Learning resources: comprehensive live demos and educational resources
  • Community support: community and technical forums for developer collaboration

Take the Leap

Real-Time QPU Access

You get a minute of QPU access time for free when signing up for Leap, which is enough to run between 400 and 4000 problems. You can earn additional time by providing your GitHub credentials. Real-time means that:

  • Problems run on the QPU as they are submitted.
  • Solutions are returned in seconds.

Comprehensive Environment

Leap is more than just access to a QPU. It also includes:

  • Engaging, animated demos to explain quantum computing applications and introduce the programming model.
  • Interactive learning materials that include live code, equations, visualizations and narrative text to jump-start quantum application development.
  • Open-source Ocean SDK, which helps you use the system and develop your own code within the familiar language of Python.
  • Access to the growing community of developers who want to build the first quantum killer app.
  • Detailed documentation explaining everything from the physics of quantum annealing to how to use the Ocean software.

Accessible Services

Leap makes quantum computing accessible:

  • Connect securely to the QPU through the cloud.
  • Easily add to your first free minute of QPU time by open-sourcing the code you develop.
  • Upgrade for additional blocks of time starting at $2000/hr (discounts for longer engagements, and for users from university and government sectors).
  • Use the programming model to tell the system which problem to solve not how to solve the problem.
  • Contribute to the Ocean SDK on GitHub.

Practical Approach

Get started writing useful quantum applications:

  • You do not need to be a quantum physicist to write software for the D-Wave system.
  • From beginner to advanced, any developer can get started building and running quantum applications.
  • More than 150 early applications across domains like optimization, AI, and materials sciences already exist on D-Wave systems today.
