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.

It was 10 years ago in June that ideaSpace welcomed its first member. The first of its kind in Cambridge, ideaSpace became home to a range of exciting start-ups – many of which have gone on to great success. We grew too – opening a second office in the city centre in 2013 and ideaSpace South three years later, on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. We are continuing to celebrate a decade of community with our ‘Focus on a Founder’ series. This week we spoke to Alexandra Grigore of Simprints who joined ideaSpace back in 2014.
