Partnership to help private industry and government evaluate risk across finance, climate, geopolitics and
other complex systems


Results stand to demonstrate near-term commercial impact for quantum computing

IonQ, Inc. (“IonQ”), a leader in quantum computing, today announced an initiative in partnership with GE
Research to explore the impact of quantum computing and IonQ’s quantum computers in the pivotal field of risk
analysis. The initiative is expected to lay the groundwork for risk management across key sectors including
finance, government and others.

“Globally, we’re grappling with incredibly complex systems that impact financial markets, supply chains, and
daily business operations; the organizations that do not understand their exposure to risks within these complex
systems are increasingly vulnerable,” said Peter Chapman, CEO and President of IonQ. “As we explore how quantum
computing could help us calculate — and correct for — these risks, we’re proud to partner with GE, whose
forward-thinking team sees that the rise of data availability pairs naturally with quantum computers to find new
solutions to these management challenges.”

In the wake of COVID-19, risk management and resilience have become more important than ever. Recent
findings

show organizations across industries are in need of stronger risk analysis surrounding finance, cybersecurity,
third-party relationships and more. With IonQ and GE Research’s new partnership, this analysis could be made
possible by the use of copulas in quantum computing. Copulas have a flexible way of depicting relationships
between variables; the models are well suited to measure information from multiple sets of random data inputs
and distill them into a single variable. Because quantum hardware is uniquely suited to this type of analysis,
the teams aim to explore breakthrough implications for risk management solutions.

“Quantum computing has the potential to accelerate disruptive innovation for many industries,” said Dave
Vernooy, a Senior Executive and Digital Technologies Leader at GE Research. “A big focus for us is finding ways
to make quantum real across our industries. We can do this by collaborating with leading quantum computing
vendors such as IonQ to show how quantum-based approaches can help organizations better model risk and its
impacts, and we’re excited to see how this work can be extended into classification, machine learning and
network partitioning.”

The announcement of this partnership is another sign of IonQ’s significant momentum in the last year. It
recently became the only supplier whose quantum computers are available via all of the major cloud providers and
demonstrated in collaboration with QCWare the power of quantum machine learning algorithms to transform natural
language processing, decision-making, customer recommendations and fraud detection. Finally, IonQ is soon to be
the first publicly-traded, pure-play quantum computing company via a merger with dMY Technology Group, Inc. III
(NYSE: DMYI).
