Individual developers will be able to use the language to simulate problems that would use up to 30 logical qubits of power, while select enterprise customers and Azure developers will be able to simulate more than 40 qubits of power, Microsoft noted.

Meanwhile, Nadella also stressed on technology that would better what human beings could do and open ways to ensure more human participation.

At the Microsoft's Ignite conference in Orlando, Florida, Nadella in his keynote address, spoke about the use of technology in promoting inclusiveness and how technology could solve biggest challenges that people face today. "One thing that we realized is whatever novel concepts you came up with ultimately will stop being novel".

"That's the start of a very healthy franchise", Nadella said. ".I'm most excited about accessibility", he said.

Joining Nadella on stage, Freedman added, "Microsoft's qubit will be based on a new form of matter called topological matter that also has this property that as the information stored in the matter is stored globally, you can't find the information in any particular place".

"We live in a golden age where technology can enable more people to participate in our technology and in our society". How can we make sure that there's no bias built into technology? This is what grounds us in our mission: "to empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more", he added.

To unlock the creativity in people, Nadella announced advancements that Microsoft has made so that they can bring out the best in every organization.

"There isn't a single industry that isn't being transformed. We collectively have the opportunity to lead in this transformation", said Nadella.

"The fact that the U.S.is the beacon of hope and the attraction of talent all over the world is something that we should hold as precious", he said.

He said three characteristics define this shift: the move to multi-device, multi-sensory interactions; artificial intelligence driving predictive insights across devices; and a new fabric of serverless, or distributed, computing power.
