Quantum Machines orchestrates the quantum revolution, building an off-the-shelf quantum computer and much more in this week’s digest of quantum news.

Spotlight Story:
“The classical layers of the quantum computer are the real unmet need. They are the bottleneck,” Quantum Machines co-founder Itamar Sivan told me. “We were really looking into what is holding the industry back. What are the things that we can do today to drive this industry forward, but that will also enable faster progress in the future. Since most of the focus in the last years has been devoted to quantum processors, it was only natural that you know we take on this challenge.” — Tech Crunch
