To date, public demonstrations of gate-based quantum computing have used fewer than In the last year, the Azure Quantum hardware team has moved from a largely experimental approach — testing theories in the lab and learning by trial and error — to simulating, designing and engineering materials with specific requirements for optimal performance. Around the world, scientists are racing to better understand the complicated chemical or molecular processes that could help remove climate warming gases from the atmosphere, create better batteries or sustainable sources of energy, produce more food on a single acre of land or help remove pollutants to create clean water.

Whoever develops a commercial quantum accelerator first will have a strong competitive advantage, along with their customers, Alam said.
