Accelerating Into 2022

March 11, 2022  

The beginning of 2022 has been an exceptionally productive time for QCI.  The quantum computing market is seeing growth through new entrants into the marketplace and even some consolidation among various players.   However, it is also seeing a growing realization by the commercial marketplace that it will offer significant advantages to those companies willing to be earlier adopters. The challenge for those early adopters is that quantum computers (or QPUs) are not providing the performance advantages to deliver business value, yet. But, when they do, those early adopters will have significant competitive advantage in their industry.

QCI is perfectly positioned in this space for those early adopters.  

In January, we launched our Path to Quantum (P2Q)  Qonsulting offering. With Qonsulting and our QatalystTM ready-to-run quantum software, QCI is positioned to accelerate and enhance our clients’ exploration of their optimal path to quantum value. P2Q also features a four-phase framework that organizations can use to explore, measure, and strategically plan their quantum computing adoption.  

Using Qatalyst, our consultants de-risk and accelerate quantum exploration for every organization. 

  • Qatalyst ready-to-run quantum software eliminates the expense and complexity of programming quantum software just to explore options
  • QCI supports a range of quantum computing hardware, so organizations get a vendor-neutral analysis across popular platforms
  • We accelerate benchmarking across quantum platforms by factors of 10x or more

The early response from customers and partners has been overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to working with a variety of quantum explorers to accurately define their best opportunities and strategy to achieve quantum value.

We announced our first customer for Path 2 Quantum. QCI will provide consulting and quantum-driven solutions to employee staffing solutions company Quad M Solutions, Inc. This collaboration will utilize QCI’s Qatalyst™ software to provide more accurate and diverse underwriting insights, leveraging quantum-ready classical, early NISQ, and eventually full-scale quantum computers.

QCI consultants will work with Quad M’s database of 100K employees to provide deeper insights that drive more robust underwriting solutions for Quad M. Once proven, Quad M and QCI will jointly market the product to other self-insured companies as well as medical insurance providers. We are excited about the potential for this partnership to deliver quantum value to the staffing and insurance industries. 

We announced a business relationship and exclusive marketing agreement with QPhoton, Inc., a leading innovator in the quantum photonic technology space. The companies will work together to merge QCI’s quantum software solution, Qatalyst, with QPhoton’s advanced photonic quantum technologies for application to QCI-specific solutions.

We believe that  our partnership with QPhoton has the potential to accelerate and expand our effort to democratize quantum computing with groundbreaking and immediately usable quantum solutions that are affordable and can deliver ROI to end users. As a quantum innovator, QPhoton leverages two decades of leading quantum studies to bring significant quantum value to the market including advanced photonic chips, quantum nanophotonics, quantum-boosted sensing (Light Detection and Ranging), quantum-secured cyber applications, and quantum networks.

The two companies expect to deliver their first solutions in Q4, 2022, with first demonstrations in Q3, 2022. 

We were also honored to offer QUBT U as part of the Quantum Programing Workshop for Purdue Women Engineers & Scientists. The workshop featured sessions by Microsoft, IonQ, and QCI, as well as Purdue professors and students. QCI Quantum Research and Application Scientist ‚Äč‚ÄčElif Tokar Erdemir presented the hour-long session, “Solving Optimization Problems with Quantum Computers,” using coursework from the company’s QUBT U program.

 ~70 attendees successfully solved four quantum optimization problems in real-time, requiring no quantum expertise or programming. Attendees simply logged into Qatalyst, then submitted four quantum optimization problems to CPUs and QPUs. All attendees successfully solved these problems during the hour session. 

We believe this is a testimony to the power of QCI and Qatalyst to democratize access to quantum computing value for a variety of users, beyond the elite quantum scientists needed to code complex quantum programs and algorithms. 

Stay tuned for more news and innovation next month.
