What Company Was Once Known As Quantum Computer Services Inc?
A company called AOL (American Online Service) was once known as Quantum Computer Services Inc. in 1985 before changing its name to AOL in 1991. AOL was one of the first Internet service providers to offer a dial-up Internet connection that provided millions of people with access to online gaming, email, instant messaging, and a proprietary web browser.
Microsoft has multiple efforts related to quantum computing including their Azure Cloud Computing Service which provides access to a variety of different quantum computers from companies such as IonQ, Honeywell, and Rigetti. They also provide a Quantum Development Kit which is a full SDK that allows developers to write quantum programs and simulate them on a classical computer before running them on their quantum processors.
D-Wave Systems is another company that focuses on developing quantum technology. Their flagship product is a series of adiabatic quantum annealing processors which are designed to solve quadratic unconstrained binary optimization problems and are used in a variety of applications such as manufacturing, design, and energy management. They also have a software development kit which enables developers to rapidly develop and test their applications on D-Wave's hardware.
QCi (NASDAQ: QUBT) is a software company that is developing "quantum ready" real world software solutions for their business and government clients. These solutions utilize a variety of quantum techniques to provide superior results on classical computers and will run seamlessly on quantum computers when those become a reality. They have already completed a proof of concept that showed how their entropy quantum computer could be used to solve the BMW sensor problem which is a critical risk-management use case for autonomous driving.
