ideaSpace West members Riverlane and dividiti celebrate after a successful quantum computing hackathon.

On Saturday 6th October 2018, over 40 hackathon attendees were given the chance to flex their quantum programming skills with the aim of finding the best solution to a quantum chemistry problem. IBM provided priority access to their quantum computer for the London event.

Thomas Parks from Riverlane comments "We were really pleased to see a lot of people who understood the ideas and we were able to show the real potential for quantum computing for practical problem solving"

The event follows on from the teams first hackathon over summer which enabled hackers to use Rigetti’s 8-qubit quantum computer via the cloud to compute the energy of a small molecule.

Riverlane and dividiti are both based at ideaSpace West and are working together, sharing knowledge and expertise. Riverlane are finding dividiti's cloud benchmarking platform a great tool for evaluating their quantum chemistry platform.
