SandboxAQ joins Chicago Quantum Exchange as corporate Partner

SandboxAQ, ‍‍an enterprise B2B company providing solutions at the nexus of AI and quantum technology (AQ), has joined the Chicago Quantum Exchange as a corporate partner as per June 21 announcement.
The Palo Alto, California,-based company, which spun off from Alphabet Inc. in 2022, develops solutions to address some of the world’s greatest challenges for the public sector and a broad range of industries including financial services, healthcare, cybersecurity, and telecommunications. SandboxAQ’s innovations include post-quantum cryptography (PQC), quantum sensing, and simulation & optimization. Their vice president of product, Nadia Carlsten, spoke at the 2022 Chicago Quantum Summit, and SandboxAQ Senior Research Scientist Stefan Bogdanovic will present at a virtual CQE Seminar on Wednesday, June 26, at 11 a.m. CT.
SandboxAQ and CQE will collaborate on quantum sensing efforts, particularly at the University of Chicago-based National Science Foundation Quantum Leap Challenge Institute for Quantum sensing for Biophysics and Bioengineering (QuBBE). The CQE and SandboxAQ will also work together on recruiting, education, and training initiatives.

In Other News: “The A Register reports “Japan’s SciTech Institute plans two quantum computers and an Nvidia injection”

Japan’s Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology is set to work on a pair of quantum computers, and inject Nvidia’s latest accelerators into one of its existing supercomputers according a TneARegister June 19 article
The Institute (AIST) recently announced it had signed a memorandum of understanding with IBM that will see the two entities “strengthen collaboration for the industrialization of quantum technology” and “promote the development of next-generation quantum computers and their supply chain.”
Fujitsu also revealed it’s sold the Institute a quantum computer. Fujitsu described the machine as a “gate-based superconducting quantum computer” that is “designed to scale to hundreds of qubits … without upgrading the dilution refrigerators that constitute a superconducting quantum computer.”
HPE CEO Antonio Neri, meanwhile, told Japanese media that the company he leads has scored a $200 million deal to provide the Institute with $200 million worth of servers packing Nvidia’s H200 accelerators.

In Other News: LANL report finds range of possibilities for quantum computing in DARPA program

A new report from Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) describes the range of groundbreaking applications that quantum computing may realize at the Laboratory. In support of the Quantum Benchmarking program at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the “Potential Applications of Quantum Computing at Los Alamos National Laboratory” report describes the future possibilities for quantum computing at Los Alamos in everything from the magnetic materials at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MAGLAB) to improving our understanding of high-temperature super conductivity in materials to nuclear astrophysics simulations that require approaches beyond classical methods.
“Quantum computing has the potential to transform the modeling and simulation capabilities that are the backbone of our scientific and national security missions at the Laboratory,” said Carleton Coffrin, senior scientist at Los Alamos and a co-author on the report. “This report serves as a useful guide for the continued, impactful development of quantum computing technology to help tackle exciting simulation problems across a range of scientific endeavors at national laboratories.”
