Quantum Algorithms Institute (QAI), British Columbia is announcing a partnership with qBraid, a quantum computing company based in Hanover, NH.
QAI and qBraid share a shared vision of accelerating the pace of quantum computing in British Columbia and beyond. QAI plans to leverage qBraid’s cloud-based quantum computing platform for developing quantum software and training the next generation of quantum software developers, at scale.
“qBraid is excited to be accelerating the adoption of quantum computing at organizations based in the BC area with the help of QAI’s extensive network throughout Canada,” said Kanav Setia, founder and CEO of qBraid. qBraid makes it simple for anyone to get started in quantum computing. With the qBraid-learn platform, anyone with no prior experience can run their first quantum computing program in under two minutes. Professors from QAI-affiliated universities can effortlessly provide interactive educational resources to their students bypassing the usual drudgery of setting up development environments or sharing source code. The qBraid platform is operating system agnostic, which means that the students need only a web browser to access the platform and easily gain access to all of the industry-leading quantum software currently available.
Under the current partnership, QAI researchers will be the first to gain access to qBraid’s upcoming qBraid-SDK, enabling researchers to write quantum code for various quantum hardware and software through a unified interface.
“There is no viable quantum ecosystem without a quantum workforce, and there is no quantum workforce without quantum education,” said Mehdi Bozzo-Rey, QAI’s Director of Business Development. “For this reason, I am excited for QAI to be able to start delivering educational training via the qBraid platform, which will have a great impact on research and collaboration not only within QAI community, but also—by extension—the Canadian quantum ecosystem as a whole.”
