Attendees will Solve Quantum Optimization Problems in Real-Time, with No Quantum Expertise or Coding Knowledge Required
LEESBURG, Va., February 15, 2022 – Quantum Computing Inc. (QCi) (Nasdaq: QUBT), a leader in unleashing the power of quantum computing for non-quantum experts, today announced it will participate in the Quantum Programming Workshop for Purdue Women Engineers & Scientists, taking place virtually and in-person at Purdue University on Friday, February 25th. Presented by the Center for Innovation in Quantum Pedagogy, Application and its Relation to Culture (IQPARC) and Purdue University, the event will feature sessions by Microsoft, IonQ, and QCi, as well as Purdue professors and students.
QCi Quantum Research and Application Scientist Elif Tokar Erdemir will present the session, “Solving Optimization Problems with Quantum Computers,” which will use coursework from the company’s QUBT U program to enable attendees to solve four quantum optimization problems in real-time with no quantum expertise required. Attendees will simply log in to QCi’s flagship product Qatalyst™ and submit their quantum optimization problem to CPUs and QPUs.
“We believe that quantum computing will play a crucial business role in the near future, and are dedicated to preparing our students to lead the charge,” said Mahdi Hosseini, Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Purdue University. “With its Qatalyst software and QUBT U program, QCi shares Purdue’s commitment to democratizing technology for the next generation.”
QCi launched QUBT U in August 2021 to empower students to get hands-on experience with quantum computing and quantum-ready algorithms. Today’s announcement builds upon QCi’s relationship with Purdue, established in Q4 2021, when more than 50 members of the university’s Quantum Game Club participated in QUBT U. Armed only with QCi’s Qatalyst software and a coursebook explaining the concepts, the students solved quantum optimization problems on both quantum-ready classical and quantum processors.
“This is a rare opportunity for a new generation of female engineers and scientists to get hands-on experience with quantum computing without having to spend months or years gaining expertise, writing complex programs, or doing low-level coding for a specific QPU,” said Rebel Brown, VP of Strategy for QCi. “We are honored to offer innovative young women the opportunity to solve complex computations as they experience the power of quantum computing, today.”
The mission of Purdue’s Quantum Game Club is to create and foster a diverse community of intellectual engineers and scientists by sharing knowledge and excitement while interacting with quantum machines and concepts. By working with leaders in quantum space, like QCi, they aim to contribute to the advancement and crucially shape the culture around quantum technologies, including quantum computing.
