Sandbox AQ

Solving challenging problems with AI + Quantum for positive impact


Founded in 2016, Sandbox AQ was spun off from Alphabet Inc.’s Google and is chaired by Eric Schmidt, the search giant’s former CEO. Instead of making a quantum computer of its own, Sandbox AQ seeks to develop software architecture that can replace existing cryptography with complex new algorithms that are deemed impossible to crack by quantum computers.
