Super.tech Chosen to Join Argonne Chain Reaction Innovations Incubator to Continue Building Architecture for Quantum Computing
(HPCWire) Super.tech, a company founded by UChicago CS PhD student Pranav Gokhale and advised by Professor Fred Chong, has joined the Argonne Chain Reaction Innovations incubator program ecosystem with the mission of building a full-stack, cross layer architecture for quantum computing.
The judges of the Argonne Chain Reactions Innovation incubator, which chose Super.tech from more than 150 applicants and 15 finalists. The program will provide the startup with funding, office space, and access to Department of Energy resources such as supercomputers and quantum computing testbeds. It also gives the company a cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA), which paves the path to collaborations with Argonne and DOE scientists exploring the frontiers of quantum information science.
The young startup spun off from research at the Enabling Practical-scale Quantum Computing (EPiQC) collaboration, a multi-institutional National Science Foundation Expedition led by Chong at UChicago CS. In parallel with the EPiQC vision of bridging the gap between existing quantum algorithms and tomorrow’s quantum architectures, Super.tech seeks to help quantum software developers of the present and future get the most out of these still-experimental technologies.
