(Newswire.com) The Chicago Quantum Exchange (CQE), a growing intellectual hub for the research and development of quantum technology, has added to its community seven new corporate partners in computing, technology and finance that are working to bring about and primed to take advantage of the coming quantum revolution. These new industry partners are Intel, JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), Quantum Design, Qubitekk, Rigetti Computing and Zurich Instruments.
“These new corporate partners join a robust collaboration of private and public universities, national laboratories, companies and non-profit organizations. Together, their efforts — with federal and state support — will enhance the nation’s leading center for quantum information and engineering here in Chicago,” said University of Chicago Provost Ka Yee C. Lee.
The CQE and its corporate partners advance the science and engineering necessary to build and scale quantum technologies and develop practical applications. The results of their work — precision data from quantum sensors, advanced quantum computers and their algorithms, and securely transmitted information — will transform today’s leading industries. The addition of these partners brings a total of 13 companies into the CQE to work with scientists and engineers at universities and the national laboratories in the region.
