Future quantum computers will one day bring us many great benefits. Unfortunately they will also break many of the cryptographic protocols on which current Internet security depends. Google’s quantum supremacy breakthrough notwithstanding, this is still most likely many years off. However, sensitive data intercepted and stored today, or long lifecycle ... read more

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.
