Quantum Algorithms Institute

Short name: 


Research type: 




The Quantum Algorithms Institute was established in March 2020 as a not-for-profit corporation. The Institute has been created as an industry, academia, and government collaboration to grow the applied quantum computing ecosystem in British Columbia and Canada that will create a home-grown talent pipeline to meet industry needs and that supports commercialization efforts of applied quantum computing research and algorithms development. The Institute will work across academia and industry to solve real-world problems that traditional computers are not capable solving.

The mandate of the Quantum Algorithms Institute is to advance and improve economic development in British Columbia by:

• producing and educating highly-qualified professionals in the fields of quantum computing, basic and quantum algorithmic research;
• assisting current and future industry participants in British Columbia in the field of applied quantum computing in commercializing the products of their research and development with the goal of building a vibrant industry for the benefit of all British Columbians; and
• leveraging British Columbia’s strengths to establish an applied quantum computing ecosystem that features broad participation, an inclusive approach to core technology and is focused on building a critical mass of talent that drives skilled job creation and economic development in the province and Canada.
