Article Summary:

infinityQ has developed a full stack quantum analog technology that exploits certain quantum effects to tackle real-world complex problems that classical computers can’t handle. The approach is not only faster than competing technologies the Montreal-based startup says its machine is greener – it only consumes the same amount of energy as a common light bulb. It is aiming to address some of the most complex computational optimization problems facing finance, pharmaceutical, logistics, engineering, oil and gas, and other industries. “We want to bring the computational power promised by quantum computing to the market today,” says Aurelie Helouis, CEO and co-founder of the women led, engineered and managed startup.
