Collaborate

Join us in developing hardware, software and applications​

Connecting experts

We facilitate connections between quantum experts and domain experts to work on business use cases. Our focus areas are in chemistry, computational biology, finance and optimisation.

We also welcome collaborations at every level of quantum hardware and middleware. We encourage developers to directly contribute to our open-source middleware project, Qibo.

Singapore hosts quantum experts open to collaboration at various institutions:

Business use cases

Today, the quantum computing landscape is predominantly noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) devices. These have not been proven to guarantee a computational advantage. But, as an early adopter of this emerging technology, you can prepare for the arrival of the next generation of quantum computing hardware.

Some of our focus areas include:

Quantum chemistry

Quantum chemistry applies principles of quantum mechanics to study the behavior of atoms and molecules at the fundamental level. Understanding these interactions can be pivotal in the field of material science and molecular dynamics. We explore molecular simulations using methods such as tensor networks for quantum-inspired algorithms.

Computational biology

Computational biology harnesses computational methods to decipher complex biological processes. In drug discovery, it identifies more effective medicine through simulations of molecular interactions. In gene regulatory networks, researchers study gene coordination to pinpoint potential treatment targets. We explore algorithms such as tensor network simulations to gather insights in these areas.

Finance

Complex financial assets and portfolios demand ever-increasing computational power. By studying quantum algorithms in finance, we explore new ways to analyse financial data, optimise portfolio management and address risk.

Combinatorial optimisation

In most combinatorial optimisation problems, finding the solution requires exponential time because the number of possible solutions grows rapidly as the problem size increases. We explore new ways of solving these problems using quantum encoding schemes and quantum optimisation algorithms.

Collaboration mechanisms

Formal mechanisms for collaboration can include Memoranda of Understanding (MoU), Research Collaboration Agreements (RCA) and various forms of contractual agreements signed with any of the partners of the National Quantum Computing Hub. 

We welcome enquiries about collaborations.
