Free Quantum Cloud Access for Global Response to COVID-19

Thank you for your interest in joining our development initiative to help fight COVID-19.

We are faced with a real problem that reaches around the world. Our hope is to bring together researchers across multiple disciplines to help find solutions to some of the problems raised by the COVID-19 epidemic.

As you can imagine, optimization is a useful approach to solving many of the challenges presented by COVID-19, from the problem of getting resources to people stuck in quarantine, to simulating protein folding, and beyond. 

We are making available free Leap resources to help fight COVID-19. This includes time on our quantum processing units (QPUs) and hybrid solvers, as well as access to a wealth of other resources to help you get started, including our online integrated development environment (IDE), community discussion forums, learning materials, and more.

Currently, this special COVID-19 Leap access is offered to users in those countries where Leap access is already available.
