D-Wave Quantum, a leader in quantum computing systems, software and services and uptownBasel, a Swiss-based competence centre for Industry 4.0, has announced an agreement that brings D-Wave’s quantum annealing technology solutions to the uptownBasel Infinity Center of Competence for Quantum and AI.

Designed to accelerate quantum computing understanding and adoption, the centre provides organisations with quantum skills enablement and access to a variety of quantum computing systems and renowned industry expertise to help them harness the power of the technology to solve computationally complex business and societal problems.

D-Wave will serve as the quantum optimisation technology provider for uptownBasel Infinity, giving the centre’s tenants and customers access to its AdvantageTM annealing quantum computer via the LeapTM real-time quantum cloud service.

Advantage, D-Wave’s fifth-generation commercially available quantum computer with more than 5,000 qubits and 15-way qubit connectivity, excels at optimisation problems ubiquitous in real-world commercial applications, such as manufacturing processes and reducing waste. In addition, the centre’s customers can engage with D-Wave’s team of professional services experts to facilitate the analysis, formulation and ultimately creation of production-ready quantum computing applications.

“We’ve built the uptownBasel Infinity Center of Competence for Quantum and AI in order to serve as an innovative, collaborative and advanced hub that will facilitate technology-based solutions for industry,” said Damir Bogdan, CEO of uptownBasel Infinity.
