QCI will present QUBT U for quantum computing at Quantum

LEESBURG, Va., Feb. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Quantum Computing Inc. (QCI) (Nasdaq: QUBT), a leader in unleashing the power of quantum computing for non-quantum experts, today announced its participation in the Quantum Programming Workshop for Women Engineers and Scientists at Purdue, 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 faculty and students.

QCI Quantum Research and Application Scientist Elif Tokar Erdemir will present the “Solving Optimization Problems with Quantum Computers” session, which will use the company’s courses QUBT-U program to allow participants to solve four real-time quantum optimization problems with no quantum expertise required. Participants will simply log into QCI’s flagship product Qatalyst™ and submit their quantum optimization problem to CPUs and QPUs.

“We believe quantum computing will play a crucial commercial role in the near future and we are committed to preparing our students to lead the charge,” said Mahdi Hosseini, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at 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 enable students to gain hands-on experience with quantum computing and quantum-ready algorithms. Today’s announcement builds on QCI’s relationship with Purdue, established in the fourth quarter of 2021, when more than 50 university members quantum gaming club participated in QUBT U. Armed only with QCI’s Qatalyst software and a course manual explaining the concepts, students solved quantum optimization problems on quantum-ready classical and quantum processors.

“This is a rare opportunity for a new generation of female engineers and scientists to gain hands-on experience in quantum computing without having to spend months or years gaining expertise, writing complex programs or perform low-level coding for a specific QPU,” said Rebel Brown, vice president of strategy at QCI. “We are honored to provide innovative young women with 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 foster a diverse community of intellectual engineers and scientists by sharing knowledge and enthusiasm while interacting with quantum machines and concepts. By working with leaders in the quantum space, like QCI, they aim to help advance and crucially shape the culture around quantum technologies, including quantum computing.
