TOKYO, May 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — QunaSys, a quantum computing software company, is pleased to invite students, researchers and anyone learning and exploring quantum computing and quantum chemistry worldwide to participate in the Quantum Algorithm Grand Challenge (QAGC). .
The challenge started on May 3rd, 2023 and the final deadline for submissions is July 31st, 2023. The top four individuals or teams will have the opportunity to present their algorithms at the workshop hosted by QunaSys during IEEE Quantum Week 2023, taking place from May 17th to 2023 September 22, 2023 in Seattle, USA. In addition, the top three individuals or teams will receive cash prizes: $10,000 for first place, $5,000 for second place and $3,000 for third place.
Competitive research has successfully driven industrialization in areas such as machine learning and robotics. It’s about comparing real-life problems and competing for improvements. QAGC provides a quantum algorithm platform that evaluates proposed algorithms based on the same criteria, inspiring researchers worldwide to improve their algorithms through competition. The ultimate goal is to advance the industrial implementation of quantum computing.
The challenge problem for QAGC is to calculate the fundamental energy of the modified Fermi-Hubbard model, which is very similar to molecular problems but has a known exact solution. The use of this model enables benchmarks beyond the classically simulatable size. The score is based on accuracy, measured as the absolute difference between the proposed results and the exact solution. The evaluation system will consist of 8 qubits and the estimated running time should not exceed 1000 seconds.
QAGC provides a perfect opportunity for quantum computing enthusiasts to showcase their skills and creativity. By participating, you have the opportunity to push the boundaries of NISQ algorithms and contribute to the advancement of quantum computing technology. In addition, you will gain valuable insights from other researchers and developers worldwide while becoming part of the thriving quantum computing community.
Join the race today to take NISQ algorithms to the next level! Register now for the Quantum Algorithm Grand Challenge. To learn more about the challenge and how to participate, visit https://www.qagc.org/ for more information.
