The Tiny Startup Racing Google to Build a Quantum Computing Chip

Rigetti Computing, a two-year-old startup is trying to build the hardware needed to power a quantum computer, which could trounce any conventional machine by tapping into quantum mechanics. It aims to produce a prototype chip by the end of 2017. The plan requires Rigetti to make leaps of science and engineering that have so far eluded government, academic, and corporate labs.
Rigetti has so far raised $5 million in funding and employs about 15 people. It provides best environment for solving the big challenge of scaling up qubit technology, and the company hopes to raise more money and add employees as needed.Read More>>
