TORONTO and SAN SEBASTIÁN, SPAIN (February 2, 2022) – Multiverse Computing, a leader in quantum computing for the financial industry, and Xanadu, a full-stack photonic quantum computing company, announced today a joint partnership to expand Multiverse’s use of Xanadu’s open-source software, PennyLane.
The partnership will enable Multiverse’s financial services clients to develop applications with greater speed and ease. These applications will enhance financial and banking intelligence in areas ranging from risk modeling to market forecasting.
Led by Xanadu’s world-renowned team of scientists and developers, PennyLane has built a large and passionate following since its initial release three years ago. PennyLane connects the most popular quantum computing platforms with the best machine learning tools using a device-agnostic and open-source approach, allowing users to train quantum computers the same way as neural networks.
“With PennyLane at the core of Multiverse’s product suite, our financial services clients will gain access to tools and best practices in quantum programming, backed by one of the world’s largest open-source quantum communities,” said Samuel Mugel, CTO of Multiverse Computing. “We see PennyLane as a critical tool for validating our product efforts, enhancing our ability to rapidly test and deploy new quantum capabilities across our financial user community.”
“We continue to see broader adoption of PennyLane with innovative startups like Multiverse. Xanadu’s open-source software is an excellent vehicle for accelerating development and reducing the time to market for new quantum products,” said Rafal Janik, Xanadu’s Head of Product. “The collective knowledge of Multiverse’s scientists and their clients provides feedback benefiting the broader open-source community and improving PennyLane.”
Xanadu is a Canadian quantum technology company with the mission to build quantum computers that are useful and available to people everywhere. Founded in 2016, Xanadu has become one of the world’s leading quantum hardware and software companies. The company also leads the development of PennyLane, an open-source software library for quantum computing and application development. Visit www.xanadu.ai or follow us on Twitter @XanaduAI.
PennyLane is an open-source software framework for quantum machine learning, quantum chemistry, and quantum computing built around the concept of quantum differentiable programming. It seamlessly integrates classical machine learning libraries with quantum hardware and simulators, giving users the power to train quantum computers the same way as neural networks.
