QpiAI and IISc have launched a joint certification program on AI and Quantum Computing to help enterprises, schools and colleges to train professionals and students. QpiAI™ Quantum & AI Certification course will start from May 1, 2021, and will be available across Asia and Europe.
QpiAI is an AI modelling and quantum computing company that offers the most advanced quantum modelling platforms to generate high-performance models.
The course was launched after the company realised the huge talent gap across Asia and Europe to work with such advanced technologies. “We have launched QpiAI-Explorer to bridge this gap,” said Dr Nagendra Nagaraja, CEO and Founder of Qpi Technology holdings, the parent company of QpiAI.
QpiAI-Explorer is an entry-level AI modelling and quantum computing platform that can run on a laptop without the use of expensive cloud resources. QpiAI, along with IISc, intends to offer three certifications currently: AI-level 1, AI-level 2 and joint AI & Quantum Computing Certifications to help train the workforce in large enterprises, schools and colleges.
QpiAI comprises a strong technical team of 30 engineers who will work on the courses.
“Our initiative of collaborations with various universities like IISc, IISER and TIFR have met with great enthusiasm and optimism. We also want to reach out to grass-root enterprises, schools and colleges to proliferate AI and Quantum Computing,” said Dr Amlan Mukherjee, who has a PhD from TIFR and is a post-doctoral researcher from Stuttgart University, Germany. He returned to India, to take up the challenging role as the Director of Quantum Hardware and Research at QpiAI.
“We would also like to bring these certification courses in Hindi, to have a wider reach and truly democratise AI and Quantum,” he further added.
Another engineer Dr. Pinakin M. Padalia also returned to India from TU Delft, Netherlands to join QpiAI as a Director of Quantum Circuits. With an aim to develop Quantum Computing in India, he strongly believes in the need to upskill the students and workforce to be ready for the Quantum world.
Sachin Kumar, who is a Senior Data Scientist at QpiAI, said that hands-on AI modelling experience is absolutely crucial to accelerating Intelligent Digital Transformation. QpiAI-Explorer is designed to achieve the same.
Further QpiAI is scheduled to tape-out 128-qubit Quantum Control Chip codenamed “BumbleBee” this September/October of 2021. It will be a state-of-the-art quantum control chip intended to work at 4 Kelvin (-269 oC) designed using 22 nm TSMC CMOS process. QpiAI intends to jointly deploy this chip with various institutes, combining it with semi-conductor and super-conductor qubits.
Enterprises, schools and colleges can enrol for certification program here.
