Last month, Rigetti Computing, a quantum computing hardware firm with a “full-stack” strategy, acquired QxBranch, a quantum computing and data analytics software startup. The acquisition is expected to expand on the company’s ability to deliver quantum algorithms, solutions, and services. Financial details of the all-equity transaction were not disclosed.
We spoke with Michael Brett, QxBranch’s former CEO, now Rigetti’s SVP of Applications, about the implications for financial services.
