Boost your optimization performance with quantum software. Right now.

Quantum Photonics and QCI FAQs

Our Quantum Photonic System (QPS), operates at room temperature and maintains computational stability in a variety of application environments. These unique approaches eliminate the cost and complexity required by the hyper-cooled, tightly controlled environments required by other quantum technology. It is designed to be easily deployed and used at a substantially reduced total cost of ownership relative to competing offerings, while providing substantial quantum advantages.

The QPS for optimization works effectively with QCI’s Qatalyst software, which is designed to eliminate the need for complex quantum programming and runs seamlessly across a variety of quantum computers. This combination sets QCI on a path to delivering a broadly accessible and affordable solution that can be used by non-quantum experts, anywhere, for real-world industry applications.

Qatalyst FAQs

Qatalyst is a highly sophisticated, quantum application accelerator for complex computations. It is ready-to-run, in the cloud. Its sophisticated optimization applications solve complex mathematical computations fast while delivering a diversity of high-quality results. You no longer have to bet your business decisions on a single computational result.

By eliminating the need for quantum expertise and complex programming, Qatalyst accelerates your time to business results. It uses familiar SME constructs. Simply add a Q API call to current workflows and applications, and they, too, access Qatalyst power. Faster time-to-results, faster time-to-quantum, no quantum programming required.

Quantum Computing FAQs

Quantum computing is an entirely new paradigm. It requires significant new skills and knowledge to even begin to understand. Consequently, the time-to-expertise will be significant, unless organizations can locate and hire these scarce resources. Even then, these scarce experts demand significant investments.

Expect to spend 6-12 months before you have your first quantum program. And, every time your quantum processing units (QPUs) are updated or you expand the number, expect to rewrite the low-level code that's proprietary to the specific quantum computer you've selected. Then there's Qatalyst.

Forget SDKs. Get Ready-to-Run Quantum

Quantum hardware seems to be getting all the attention these days. Yet in many ways, quantum software programming is the bigger challenge. It requires a significant new level of expertise that classical programmers and business subject matter experts don’t have.

That's why we created Qatalyst as ready-to-run optimization software for quantum and classical computers. Run your problem today on quantum-inspired classical while you explore the power of quantum, using the same problem. No programming, no expensive long programming cycles.  Just better more accurate results.
