About technology

Leap is the first cloud-based Quantum Application Environment (QAE) providing real-time access to a live quantum computer, the D-Wave 2000Q. In addition to free and real-time access, Leap provides open-source development tools, interactive demos and coding examples, educational resources, and knowledge base articles. Ocean SDK, a suite of tools for solving hard problems with quantum computers, is available on Leap and in GitHub, developers can use Python and Jupyter notebooks to draft code, and open sourcing code earns developers additional free time on Leap. Designed with developers in mind, Leap enables collaboration through its online community, helping Leap users write and run quantum applications to accelerate the development of real-world applications. Leap builds on D-Wave’s continuing work to drive real-world quantum application development. To-date, D‑Wave customers have developed 100 early applications for problems spanning airline scheduling, election modeling, quantum chemistry simulation, automotive design, preventative healthcare, logistics, and more. Many have also developed software tools that make it easier to develop new applications. These existing applications and tools, along with access to a growing community, give developers a wealth of examples to learn from and build upon. Today, we have thousands of developers using Leap to run code and build quantum applications directly on our 2000Q systems – the same quantum computers used by NASA, Lockheed Martin, Google and others.
