Quantum computing is a nascent business sector that is growing rapidly. There is a global shortage of quantum talent. Post-secondary professors, post-doctoral researchers, as well as PhD, post-graduate and undergraduate students hold a significant share of the world’s quantum expertise and can help drive the growth of this transformative sector.
QAI supports researchers, educators and students to share their expertise with industry, governments, and non-profit organizations. We partner on applied research projects, as well as create and deliver training to industry and government professionals and promote BC quantum expertise to the world.
QAI helps to make BC a hub of world-class quantum knowledge and a vibrant and collaborative quantum community.
Our Academic Affiliates program is now open to applications from all post-secondary faculty and students in BC who have interests in applied quantum technologies and software. This includes faculty and students in applied disciplines where quantum computing and other quantum technologies can be applied to solve industry problems, such as in finance, telecommunications, security, transportation & logistics, life sciences and more.
D-Wave Quantum Computing Training @ QAI is a self-paced and instructor supported 1-week online course, followed by one-month unlimited access to the D-Wave Leap™ Quantum Cloud service. This is a short, intensive time-period to learn how to use D-Wave Leap™ and explore how D-Wave quantum hardware and services can apply to a wide range of applications across multiple industries.
The Quantum Algorithms Institute is covering the full cost for the training and access to the D-Wave Leap™ Quantum Cloud service.
This program is open to QAI Academic Affiliates that are currently with an academic institution in British Columbia.
