ARES wants to offer quantum computing for all


When D-Wave introduced its quantum computer two years ago, it was reported to have a price tag said to be “north of 10 Million dollars.” So, there’s no chance that you’ll ever have access to one.

Or maybe there is.

Pascal Papara and his associates at ARES Computer inh want to make access to high-level computing available and affordable. ARES has launched a Kickstarter campaign to back a effort that would make quantum computing “accessible to a broader user base including institutions, schools and medical facilities.”

ARES hopes to raise at least 70,000 Euros by Sept. 11. Project backers will get various rewards including free cloud storage, a Raspberry Pi case or the W4LK3R computer that’s based on the Raspberry Pi 2.

The money will be used to create an access and sharing model using a cloud platform and D-Wave’s Quantum Technology. Users will be able to access the system using a desktop OS or Raspberry Pi.
