IonQ earns spot in the prestigious list of 119 innovative companies for innovation in quantum computing
IonQ (NYSE: IONQ), an industry leader in quantum computing, today announced that it has been named to Fast Company’s third annual Next Big Things in Tech list, honoring technology breakthroughs that promise to shape the future of industries—from healthcare and security to artificial intelligence and data. This is IonQ’s first time appearing on the list.
“This recognition is not only a tremendous honor but a testament to the transformative impact and potential of our technology,” said Peter Chapman, President and CEO of IonQ. “IonQ is committed to advancing quantum computing capabilities to drive technological breakthroughs and solve complex business problems across industries. This award fuels our drive to continue pushing boundaries and breaking barriers.”
IonQ has experienced immense growth over the last three years, positioning itself as a frontrunner in the current quantum computing landscape. The company has worked with global corporations such as Hyundai Motor Company, Airbus, and GE Research to apply quantum computing to investigate challenges within their businesses. In September, IonQ landed a $25.5M project with the United States Air Force Research Lab to deploy two barium-based trapped ion quantum computing systems for quantum networking research and application development.
Today’s recognition follows IonQ’s recent announcement that it was named one of the 500 fastest-growing tech companies in North America for 2023 by Deloitte. Additionally, in October, IonQ announced it had achieved 29 algorithmic qubits (#AQ) on a barium-based quantum computer, a key milestone in the company’s mission to develop systems capable of commercial quantum advantage. This summer, IonQ also unveiled two future quantum systems - IonQ Forte Enterprise and IonQ Tempo - the company’s enterprise-ready quantum computers.
