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.”
“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.”
