Algorithmiq Demonstrates Path to Quantum Utility with IBM

Algorithmiq, a scaleup developing quantum algorithms to solve the most complex problems in life sciences, has successfully run one of the largest scale error mitigation experiments to date on IBM’s hardware. This achievement positions them, with IBM, as front runners to reach quantum utility for real world use cases. The experiment was run with Algorithmiq’s proprietary error mitigation algorithms on the IBM Nazca, the 127 qubit Eagle processor, using 50 active qubits x 98 layers of CNOTS and thus a total of 2402 CNOTS gates. This significant milestone for the field is the result of a collaboration between the two teams, who joined forces back in 2022 to pave the way towards achieving first useful quantum advantage for chemistry.
