QCI has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire QPhoton, a quantum photonics innovation company that has developed a series of quantum photonic systems. QCI’s QPS, including those for AI and optimization, operate at room temperature and maintain computational stability in a variety of application environments. This combination sets QCI on a path to delivering a broadly accessible and affordable solution that can be used by non-quantum experts, anywhere, for real-world industry applications. “Joining forces with QCI is a momentous occasion in achieving my life’s work in delivering real quantum value to industry,” said Dr. Yuping Huang, CEO of QPhoton. The combination lays the groundwork for scalable quantum solutions to be incorporated into critical business activities. . . .
