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 that it will be attending the Quantum programming workshop for Purdue engineers and scientists, taking place virtually and in person at Purdue University on Friday, February 25. Presented by the Center for Innovation in Quantum Pedagogy, Application and its Relation to Culture (IQPARC) and Purdue University, the event will include sessions from Microsoft, IonQ and QCI, as well as Purdue professors and students.
Elif Tokar Erdemir, QCI’s Quantum Research and Applications Scientist, will present the Solving Optimization Problems with Quantum Computers session, which will use the company’s coursework QUBT U Program that allows participants to solve four quantum optimization problems in real time without the need for quantum expertise. Participants simply log into QCI’s flagship product catalyst 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 strive to prepare our students to take on the responsibility,” said Mahdi Hosseini, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at Purdue University. “QCI, through its Qatalyst software and QUBT U program, shares Purdue’s commitment to democratizing next-generation technology.”
QCI QUBT U launched in August 2021 To enable students to gain hands-on experience with quantum computing and quantum-ready algorithms. Today’s announcement builds on QCI’s relationship with Purdue, which was established in the fourth quarter of 2021 when more than 50 members of the university Quantum Game Club participated in QUBT U. Armed only with QCI’s Qatalyst software and a course book 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 engineers and scientists to gain hands-on experience with quantum computing without having to spend months or years acquiring expertise, writing complex programs, or performing low-level coding for a specific QPU .” said Rebel Brown, VP of Strategy at QCI. “We are honored to offer innovative young women the opportunity to solve complex calculations while experiencing the power of quantum computing today.”
The mission of Purdue’s Quantum Game Club is to create and nurture a diverse community of intellectual engineers and scientists by sharing knowledge and enthusiasm while interacting with quantum machines and concepts. By collaborating with leaders in the quantum space like QCI, they aim to contribute to the advancement and disrupt the culture around quantum technologies, including quantum computing.
