Quantum Computing Inc (QCI)
What happens when you put a team together with world-class expertise in supercomputing, mathematics and parallel programming?
The answer is something in the mould of Quantum Computing Inc (QCI), a cloud-based quantum software vendor, whose key service is “ready-to-run software for complex constrained optimization computations.”
A quantum-assist for your business optimization problems
— Quantum Computing Inc
Founded in 2018 by Robert Liscouski and headquartered in Leesburg, Virginia, QCI’s flagship software package is Qatalyst, an application accelerator that offers full quantum power without any of the usual complexity. The software, which requires no professional background or education in quantum physics or programming, takes advantage of quantum mechanics for quicker, much more effective business decisions by solving difficult mathematical computations in a heartbeat.
At the heart of Qatalyst are the following components:
— Q API enables SMEs and applications to access the state-of-the-art capabilities of Qatalyst through six simple calls
— Q Graph empowers SMEs to submit and analyze graph models as part of their complex optimizations
— The Qatalyst Core provides sophisticated mathematics, quantum transformation, and iterative processing to find the most excellent answers across classic and quantum computers
— Qontrol manages all requests, provides status, alerts, and more. The Qontrol portal gives admins simple management tools and users access to Qatalyst and their requests
— Qonnect transparently submits problems to any blend of QPU and CPU resources, with no new programming required
Utilizing Amazon’s Braket to connect to quantum computers like Rigetti’s, D-Wave’s, and IonQ’s to run applications, it’s no wonder the Qatalyst’s power of quantum technology on classical models offers unparalleled solutions to a wide range of industries such as supply chain and retail, cybersecurity, life sciences and pharmaceutical while extending its reach to government and applied research, too.
On the startup’s position in regard to commercial development in a Seeking Alpha interview from earlier this year, founder, chairman, CEO, and president Robert Liscouski position is simple:
“QCI is just getting into the marketplace with its solutions. We have spent the past 18 months developing, refining and testing our software applications and platform with various beta users to ensure that we had a practical and workable software platform before going to market. As we discussed earlier, there are a huge number of real-world problems that our software platform can address; logistics optimization, cybersecurity, drug discovery, etc. Our initial focus is on the complex problems that we are certain we can solve and scale into a broad market, such as supply chain and logistics…”
And Liscouski, with more than 35 years of executive experience at public and private companies — as well as federal agencies — has the wherewithal to give QCI the competitive advantage in this ever-growing sector.
