Classiq is joining the SEQUOIA Project to focus on software engineering of industrial hybrid quantum applications and algorithms

TEL-AVIV – NOVEMBER 11, 2021 – Classiq, which provides a breakthrough Quantum AlgorithmDesign platform, announced today that it is collaborating with the FraunhoferInstitute, the leading organization for applied research in Europe, as well as other major academic centers, on the development of software for industrial use of quantum computers.

The SEQUOIA Project, part of the Competence Center QuantumComputing Baden-Württemberg, focuses on the software engineering of industrial hybrid quantum applications and algorithms. The project is researching, developing, and testing new methods, tools, and procedures for quantum computing in order to enable future industrial use. It includes the FraunhoferInstitute for Industrial Engineering IAO, then Fraunhofer Institute forManufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA, the Fraunhofer Institute forApplied Solid State Physics IAF, the University of Tubingen, the FZI ResearchCenter, and the University of Stuttgart with the institutes IAAS and HLRS.

The SEQUOIA project focuses on three central aspects with the main results:

●     The quantum application center with applications and algorithms, e.g. for manufacturing, production, logistics, energy, and engineering.

●     The quantum software component kit as the basis for the implementation of application components, algorithms, hybrid quantum-classical solutions, and demonstrators.

●     The quantum software engineering model with its own methods, procedures, technologies, and experiences from the project.

“We are pleased for the opportunity to collaborate with theFraunhofer Institute on groundbreaking software work for the benefit of industrial customers”, says Shai Lev, Head of Business Development andPartnerships at Classiq, “this collaboration leverages the unique abilities ofClassiq and Fraunhofer, two leaders in their fields”.

Specifically, Classiq would work within the SEQUOIA framework and with the SEQUOIA partners on two main problems:

●     Solving mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) problems with state-of-the art(gate-based) quantum computers. MILP problems are a special class of linear programming problems that is used for production planning and scheduling, optimization of cellular and telecommunications networks, and more.

●     Solving coupled partial differential equations with the Harrow Hassidim Lloyd (HHL) quantum algorithm. These are applicable to numerous problems such as fluid flow, electrodynamics, and more.

“We welcome Classiq into the Sequoia partnership”, says Dr. Christian Tutschku, from theFraunhofer Institute. “We are looking forward to work with the Classiq team on novel methods of generating quantum algorithms”.

About Classiq

Quantum is disrupting computing. Classiq’s Quantum Algorithm Design platform is revolutionizing quantum software development. Forward-thinking companies use our platform to solve real-world problems with quantum circuits that could not be created otherwise. Our patented breakthrough technology automatically transforms high-level functional models into optimized quantum circuits for a wide range of back-end systems, turning months into minutes of work and making it possible to harness the true power of today’s and tomorrow’s computers.
