D-Wave Launches Free Quantum Computing Service

D-Wave just launched a free cloud quantum computing service called "Leap". Anyone can register an account for free on the project's site, which gives them 1 minute of computation time on a D-Wave 2000Q every month. D-Wave also released an SDK called "Ocean" to help users quickly set up quantum computing problems to solve, and set up a forum for those users to discuss their projects. D-Wave claims that precious minute of time is enough to "run between 400 and 4,000 jobs each month," and that users can pay $2000 for a full hour of access if they need more time.

"We want to enable hundreds of thousands or millions of developers to gain access to quantum computing technology, to understand it, and to develop applications," says Murray Thom, D-Wave's director of software and cloud services.
