Aliro Quantum

Aliro Technologies (Aliro), a spinout of the NarangLab at Harvard University, makes software that facilitates user access to present day quantum computers.

Aliro Quantum is a company developing software to facilitate access to present-day quantum computers. The company was founded in Spring 2019 out of Harvard's School Of Engineering And Applied Sciences (SEAS) NarangLab. Assistant Professor Prineha Narang founded Aliro Quantum with students Michael Cubeddu and Will Finigan, Jim Ricotta joined the company as CEO. Aliro raised $2.7 million seed round funding and is based in Boston, Massachusetts.

Aliro offers a hardware-independent platform for developers to write quantum software. Each quantum hardware technology runs on its own proprietary language. Aliro allows users to work in the languages that they know; then Aliro assesses the code and provides a channel for how to optimize that code and put it into quantum-ready language, also suggesting the best machine to process the task.

Aliro's development platform is implemented as a scalable cloud-based service with features including:

  • Access to multiple quantum computing hardware vendors and devices via an intuitive GUI as well as REST API
  • Quantum circuit and hybrid workflow visualization and debugging tools
  • Cross-compilation between high and low-level languages
  • Hardware-specific optimizations enabling best execution on every supported hardware platform.
