Edge Processing driven by Quantum Technologies for Green Chemicals

The work of David Deutsch, Peter Shor, J. Preskill, Kang Wang, Wolfgang Paul, J. Martinis, Christopher Monroe and many others has spawned industrial and governmental interest in practical applications of quantum information processing.  Movement from theoretical-to-practical has been a slow process with some controversy and some steps forward, such as, the recent Google announcement.

In this seminar, algorithms and quantum hardware will be discussed in accordance with how these technologies will alter Industry 4.0 applications either directly or in-conjunction-with advanced classical computing.

The BraneCell strategy asserts quantum processing will make its greatest impact via both edge computing and risk mitigation.  A good example of these applications would be green chemical production, based on combined wind and solar.  Green chemical plants by their nature are distributed (generally 1/10 the size of mega plants and in remote wind-solar rich locations).   Said green chemical plants would benefit from quantum processing and quantum readiness—but have a challenging set of, IT-requirements to achieved, including, time frame of response; cloud IT-processing on encrypted data and/or edge fit-for-purpose quantum IT-processing, where fit-for-purpose indicates particular quantum subroutines, ie., optimization, anomaly finding, finite elements analysis, etc.  Said applications and requirements work on the edge, whereas, popular first applications of quantum processing are for ab initio molecular modeling in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.  Our strategy asserts quantum applications paid for by profit centers (Industry 4.0, manufacturing, quantum Black-Scholes, cryptography…) will surpass cost-center applications (R&D, molecular modeling).

Part two of the seminar will look at various methods for physical qubit systems and their challenges for operating near to point-of-use, qubit entanglement scaling, error correction, cross talk and depth of circuit.  The seminar is intended to give our point of view and some of the quantum technology industry’s consensus implementation goals.

BraneCell Presents On-location Quantum Processors for Chemical, O&G and Industry 4.0

Announces Dr. Bongani Nkosi as a BraneCell partner helping to develop qubit materials, enabling decentralized processing, to bring the power of quantum computing to a wide range of beneficiaries.

BOSTON, Sept. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — BraneCell is developing a qubit array material system, aimed at facilitating distributed, ambient quantum coprocessing. We recently presented the revolutionary benefits of heterogeneous quantum processing, for pharmaceuticals, chemistry and engineering-based industries in Boston, USA; and for Vision 2030 in Al Khobar, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Next BraneCell’s CEO is invited to present in The Hague, Netherlands on 29 & 30 October 2019 at the IQT conference.

The main players in quantum information processing are among the biggest corporations focused on making ultra-cold, “mainframe” quantum-enhanced cloud products, therefore without edge processing capability. Their remote cloud approach may have limited applications and a limited set of privileged users.

On the other hand, BraneCell’s decentralized quantum coprocessor technology could enable forward-deployed, on-site quantum enhanced processing, a crucial feature for keeping computational results in-house, yet available to more users. Such on-site QPU-based hardware enables fit-for-purpose hybrid systems on a chip. The number of applications for purpose-built, heterogeneous QPU edge systems exceeds quantum cloud services by an order-of-magnitude and together they would fundamentally renew the information technology and semiconductor materials industries.

BraneCell’s leader, Dr. Chris Papile, noted: “A quantum gestalt is emerging, which challenges our macroscopic-based human intuition. From this gestalt a profound change in society will emerge. Not only will it usher-in Industry 4.0, but also, it has prompted a struggle over the foundation of reality itself.”

Dr. Papile added: “We are happy to announce the addition of Dr. Bongani Nkosi, as a BraneCell partner.” Dr. Nkosi is the former Head of Research & Development at Sasol, the well-known multinational. His work involved leading the division for computational chemistry and modelling. He is well published in the scientific/patent literature, while at University of Waterloo, GE Plastics and Sasol, including, transition metal clusters placed within 3D zeolite nanostructures and Mössbauer studies of 197Gold on graphene.

Dr. Nkosi said: “It is a great pleasure to be part of BraneCell. BraneCell’s technology platform can facilitate CO2-free chemicals, energy storage and many on-location optimization and controls problems. The industry is about to go through a reset, that reset should benefit everyone.

We look forward to meeting you in The Hague.”

Earlier Press Release

The world’s first ambient-temperature quantum computing venture, BraneCell Systems, presented at the Future Cities Show in Dubai the privacy and sustainability benefits for cities of the future derived from their decentralized technology.

Quantum information processing relies on a new type of computing. This surpasses normal parallel approaches in classical computers by using a basic unit of information processing, called the qubit. Each-and-every qubit within a multi-qubit system would have inherent parallelism enabling a potential processing speed-up for various computing problem-sets.

The main developers in quantum information processing are mostly focused on ultra-cold, “mainframe” quantum-enhanced cloud products, which are not decentralized. Mainframe, quantum, high-performance computing appliance cost precludes individuals and small and medium-sized enterprises owning such ultra-cold quantum mainframe machines.

Mr. Wassim Estephan, for BraneCell, stated: “The unique, decentralized nature of BraneCell’s product aim could keep a country’s private data, in-country, while providing new capabilities, like quantum-secure, energy-efficient Blockchain.”

BraneCell’s granted US patents, economies-of-scale manufacturing approach and world-class nanomaterial synthesis expertise enables distributed quantum computing products with advantages over cloud quantum processing services. The BraneCell biomimetic technology utilizes insights from scientific results accumulating over the last decade on naturally occurring, moderate-temperature quantum mechanics.

Dr. Christopher Papile, inventor of the granted patents said: “A medium-term target would enable quantum-secure, earth-and-city helpful capabilities, such as, cognitive cities, new solar power materials development, efficient logistics, real-time traffic optimization and low power usage solutions for complicated mathematical problems (for example, lowing proof-of-work energy consumption), plus a platform for data scientists to develop methodologies to keep personal and e-transactional data private for the coming quantum age. As described in the Dubai conference, balancing metropolitan renewable power plus conventional power to mirror moment-by-moment demand can reduce pollution, thus elevate both financial and ethical balance sheets.”

At the Dubai conference, BraneCell indicated they have been approached by ICO companies to study with industry experts the potential of conducting the world’s first quantum computing ICO.
