Multiverse Computing and PINQ2 Team to Adopt Quantum Computing Across Industries – High-Performance Computing News Analysis

TORONTO, January 23, 2023 – Multiverse Computing, a quantum and quantum-inspired software company, today announced a new partnership with The Platform for Quantum and Digital Innovation (PINQ2), a non-profit organization initiated by the University of Sherbrooke and the Department of Business and Innovation in Quebec, Canada, to collaborate on industrial projects in quantum and classical computing.
As part of the Quebec Quantum Innovation Zone, PINQ2 provides new and established companies with the technical know-how and IT infrastructure to test and support the digital transformation of existing products and services. Multiverse works with companies across multiple industries to implement hybrid, quantum, and quantum-inspired solutions, including manufacturing, healthcare, finance, chemicals, and energy.

PINQ was created by the University of Sherbrooke and the Department for Business and Innovation2 in 2020 to accelerate digital transformation efforts using high-performance computing infrastructure and a network of industrial and academic partners to create compelling business solutions.

“There is a clear desire for collaboration and experimentation, and we believe that what the market needs to lead this next wave of technology. People need to get their hands on the technology, experiment with it to make it their own, and create useful knowledge that generates long-term value,” said Gael Humbert, director of development partnerships and strategy at PINQ2. “Our collaboration with Multiverse is a great sign for the quantum ecosystem and we look forward to expanding access to quantum technology.”

PINQ2The goal of is to make Quebec home to the most comprehensive quantum and hybrid computing platform to support an innovation ecosystem and attract investment and talent by focusing on classical, hybrid and digital quantum solutions.

“Our customers are now seeing business value in quantum computing and algorithms, and we are excited to share our expertise with PINQ2 team,” said Mehdi Bozzo-Rey, chief revenue officer at Multiverse Computing. “Partnerships are critical to building the quantum ecosystem to identify best practices and drive innovative solutions. This collaboration will clearly have a crucial impact on the growth of the quantum ecosystem and the adoption of innovative technologies by industry.”

To support the partnership, Multiverse will collaborate on activation activities and contribute to the PINQ2 Platform in the context of customer projects and offer technical training courses on Multiverse products and solutions.

PINQ2 plans major investments in infrastructure, data sovereignty, and digital innovation to support the ecosystem, which includes classical infrastructure, cloud quantum infrastructure, IBM 127-qubit Falcon quantum computer, and other photonic and quantum systems.

PINQ2 is part of a growing group of quantum experts in Toronto, Montreal and Sherbrooke. Multiverse also recently announced a partnership with Mila, a Montreal-based research institute focused solely on machine learning. Multiverse and Mila will use quantum and quantum-inspired methods to advance AI and machine learning (ML). The partnership will also focus on developing new leaders in the high-tech areas of quantum computing and ML.
