softwareQ Inc. awarded Government of Canada
$1 million Phase 2 grant for democratizing access to quantum computing
October 16, 2023
We are happy to announce that our project “aqcess” – “Accessing Quantum Computing – Easy, Smart, Simple” has been awarded a Phase 2 contract totalling $1 million by the Government of Canada, through the Innovative Solutions Canada Program, for its “Quantum Computing as a Service” challenge https://ic.gc.ca/eic/site/101.nsf/eng/00120.html. We continue to build a commercial solution that will democratize access to quantum computing infrastructure, seeking a user-friendly solution for using Quantum Computing-as-a-Service (QCaaS) to optimize complex problem solving, estimate resources required for large-scale quantum computing, provide educational tools, and yielding possible solutions for use in evidence-based decision-making.
softwareQ announces collaboration with Transmutex SA
October 21, 2022
We are happy to announce that we partnered with Transmutex to tackle potential applications of quantum computing software and algorithms in managing waste residues.
We look forward to using our products and tools to advance waste research, and to make it inherently safe, free of long-lived waste, and cost competitive.
softwareQ Inc. awarded Government of Canada grant for democratizing access to quantum computing
May 3, 2022
We are proud to announce that our project Aqcess was awarded one of three grants from the Government of Canada’s “Quantum Computing as a Service” program https://ic.gc.ca/eic/site/101.nsf/eng/00120.html. We are building a solution that will "democratize" access to quantum computing infrastructure, seeking a user-friendly solution for using Quantum Computing-as-a-Service (QCaaS) to optimize complex problem solving, yielding possible solutions for use in evidence-based decision-making.
softwareQ Inc. wins prestigious DARPA grant
April 19, 2022
We are excited to announce that softwareQ has been awarded a two-year multi-million Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency of the United States (DARPA) award to tackle the quantum benchmarking challenge https://www.darpa.mil/news-events/2021-04-02. Together with our partners Raytheon (USA) and the research group of Stephen Bartlett, University of Sydney (Australia), we will tackle one of the most important problems in quantum computing, developing meaningful metrics to quantify how useful or transformative large quantum computers will actually be once they exist.
