Our lightweight, downloadable SDK
includes a powerful QVM that
runs locally. It's the perfect place
to start quantum programming.

What people are building with Forest
Cloud Quantum Computing of an Atomic Nucleus
A team led by researchers at Oak Ridge National Labs simulated the nuclear structure of deuteron. This was the first nuclear simulation run on any quantum computer. More>
Simulating H2 and H2O with hybrid quantum/classical computing
Using a modified form of the variational quantum eigensolver, researchers simulate H2 and H2O using Forest and the 19Q-Acorn quantum processor. More>
What people are saying
Zapata Computing & Harvard University
“I find Forest to be a great toolkit for a wide range of users. It can serve as an effective educational tool (especially paired with a helpful and friendly Slack community) as well as a flexible research tool for building testbeds for quantum algorithms.”
“As I've been developing my own quantum applications and testing them on Rigetti quantum hardware, I've very much appreciated the guidance, help, and encouragement from their excellent staff.”
“Working with Rigetti has been presented us with the opportunity to test our ideas on quantum computation/simulation with today’s cutting edge technology. Now the translation of ideas to from theory paper to experimental reality is cloud-enabled.”
