A project to illustrate applied quantum computing to solutions to real-world problems
Richmond, VA and Leesburg, VA, October 5, 2022 (Globe Newswire) – Virginia Foundation for Innovation VIPC today announced a partnership with quantum computing company (QCI) (NASDAQ: QUBT), Virginia’s startup leader in accessible quantum computing, to determine optimal flight paths for unmanned aerial vehicles that benefit from QCI The road to quantitative consultingAnd the Qatalyst™And the Optical Quantum Systems Devices.
QCI will implement its quantum photovoltaic systems if critical risk management is used that includes the selection of flight paths for unmanned aerial vehicles. As part of this effort, QCI will determine the optimal time, speed and path for drones to travel between destinations, while meeting airspace restrictions and minimizing weather-related risks, obstacles, and other aircraft through the use of QCI’s Entropy Quantum Computing (EQC) systems.
Risk-based decision making is a real problem that has been identified as a key strategic priority by the Federal Aviation Administration. QCI’s Entropy quantum computing systems are well suited for solving complex optimization problems, demonstrating the ability to quickly identify optimized flight paths that reduce costs and risks in flight.
VIPC is the Commonwealth’s seed-stage nonprofit marketing and economic development engine that drives financing, infrastructure and policy initiatives to support innovators, entrepreneurs, start-ups and market development strategies in Virginia. VIPC collaborates with local, regional, state, and federal partners to support expansion and diversification of Virginia’s economy and in the development of emerging technologies such as quantum computing within the Commonwealth of Virginia to improve competitiveness and attract more business opportunities to the state.
As part of this project, QCI and VIPC plan to leverage sensor and micro-weather data collected by the Virginia Flight Information Exchange (VA-FIX), an information center focused on providing official and local data to support unmanned aerial systems. VIPC sees these components as key technologies for advanced air mobility in Virginia.
“Our partnership with Virginia-based QCI is designed to test and explore the impact of quantum computing solutions on complex problems,” said David Ihrie, chief technology officer and vice president of strategic initiatives at VIPC. Emerging technology will require faster and more efficient quantum computing solutions. We work to ensure Virginia is prepared for safe and effective technology integration. “
VIPC and the Commonwealth of Virginia demonstrated their technological leadership with this project, focusing on real-world problems involving quantum computing. Robert Leskowski, CEO of QCI, stated that QCI is excited about the opportunity to partner with VIPC on this project. “QCI is keen to demonstrate that quantum computing offers commercial solutions to today’s problems, not only in terms of computing power, but in other applications including LiDAR and quantum networks.”
