Quantum Computing for Material Science & Pharma

– Intro, tools and first steps to simulate real-world applications –

Get deep insights into current state-of-the-art quantum simulation tools and discover the huge potential of quantum computing for material science and the pharma industry. Within the demonstration of the platform QADC and Hyrax you will learn, which tool is the right one for you and how to use it. In addition, each participant will be granted 100 credits per month to try the QADC platform and a personal contact person for both platforms to discuss your quantum simulation benefit.

Join our free webinar and take the lead!

Workshop Aim

  • After the webinar you will have enough knowledge to decide, if and where quantum simulations provide you support,
  • an overview of leading platform tools to tackle your challenges,
  • seen a demo and first steps, how to use these tools and
  • 100 credits to try the platform QADC by yourself.

Target audience

  • Representatives from industry, science and academia
  • Representatives from Material Science and Pharma
  • Researcher, Business and Innovation Developer
  • interested parties

QAD, the Quantum Assisted Design Cloud is a development environment designed to enable the simulation of molecules and materials on quantum computers. Via its web interface it allows the user to set up calculations for one- and two-dimensional lattice models of strongly correlated electrons and spin systems. Furthermore, it provides an API which allows to directly access QAD components via Python. We provide an overview over QAD’s features in the current beta version.
(10 min Q&A)

Hyrax: A quantum machine learning discovery framework
Hyrax is a drug and materials discovery platform which is powered by Rahko’s state-of-the-art quantum machine learning algorithms. Currently Hyrax can be used for the fast prediction of chemical properties in a process called virtual high-throughput screening. Hyrax additionally contains a framework which allows developers to easily create and deploy quantum algorithms on near term quantum devices.
