The quantum computing landscape has been transformed by a surge of commercial startups pursuing very different technical paths. Investors and pioneers must prepare themselves for a challenging journey ahead. A growing list of major, midsized and startup companies have joined the quantum computing quest. However today’s prototype devices must be...
Years of academic activity is now transforming itself into a wave of spin-outs and startups. Trapped ion proponents point to the very high fidelity gates that have been achieved and additional opportunities for qubit connectivity. However the best gates have historically required precision Raman laser setups that come with their...
Silicon enjoys an unrivaled lead in human fabrication know-how and investment. Importantly, in its isotopically purified form, it is an ideal neutral material to host sensitive spin qubits. Proponents emphasise the potential of this technology to deliver chip-scale solutions where some other approaches would require ‘building-size’ machines. But spin quibts...
The consensus among many quantum computing practitioners is that chemistry, specifically quantum chemistry, has great potential to be the first field to benefit from quantum computing, as the simulation of molecules can be more efficiently handled using quantum computing methods. This could accelerate materials innovation for large-scale industrial applications, such...

Quantum Benchmark is the leading provider of software solutions that enable error characterization, error mitigation, error correction and performance validation for quantum computing hardware.
Our company is led by a team of the world’s top research scientists and engineers in quantum computing with the mission of enabling quantum computers to solve real-world problems.
We are venture-backed with headquarters in Kitchener-Waterloo, Canada.
The capacity of a quantum computer to perform meaningful computations is not just determined by the number of qubits, but by the quality of those qubits. Harnessing the power of quantum computing requires overcoming errors and other imperfections that are inevitable in all quantum computing hardware architectures.
Our proprietary technology is based on years of research by several of the world’s leading experts in quantum computing. Our solutions are essential for both makers and users of quantum computers.
For users and makers of quantum computers, our software measures, optimizes, and validates the capacity of any quantum hardware platform to perform any user-supplied algorithm to any user-specified precision.
We provide software for scalable run-time error suppression under any user-supplied quantum algorithm, leading to dramatically improved hardware performance.
Our software solutions characterize the type and rate of errors for both gates and scalable circuits over a full quantum processor. This enables hardware makers to better understand the noise present in their systems, make informed decisions that improve error characteristics, and target error-correcting strategies that are optimal for their device.
