Everyone who fights COVID-19 in 35 countries of North America, Europe and Asia where the Leap service is available, including both state and private structures, can already get access to D-Wave quantum computers.
The recently launched Leap 2 service is available on a commercial basis, providing access to a hybrid solution that includes both quantum and traditional computing resources. According to D-Wave and its partners, a hybrid approach may be good for solving some of the complex problems associated with COVID-19, including analysis of new diagnostic methods, modeling of the spread of the virus, optimization of logistics in hospitals, distribution of supplies, determination of pharmaceutical combinations, etc. .P.
