ParTec at the APS March Meeting 2024
ParTec talks about HPC/QC Integration

The March Meeting 2024 of the American Physical Society is one of the biggest and most important scientific conferences with more than 13,000 physicists and students from around the world. 10,000+ abstracts were submitted on topics ranging from condensed matter to quantum physics and the latest in climate physics. ParTec’s quantum engineer Fabian Zwiehoff and quantum expert Cameron Spence attended the meeting and gave talks about the unique integration of component-based quantum systems into high-performance computing environments – a topic that was met with great response.

Key takeaways Fabian Zwiehoff:

  • A quantum computer always requires classical compute resources to function.
  • HPC can benefit from quantum modules as accelerators for certain tasks in a heterogeneous system architecture.
  • A modular system approach promises flexibility, scalability, and compatibility.

Fabian also gave an outlook on ParTec’s future plans for both custom-engineered and standardized quantum solutions in a modular, component-based approach, which are soon to come.

Key takeaways Cameron Spence:

  •  Future-Forward Integration: Expect future quantum computers in HPC environments to harness existing resources and expertise, fostering seamless integration and efficiency.
  • Embracing Modularity: Modular systems are pivotal in both HPC and quantum computing. As QC evolves, standardized APIs and QIR will be crucial for scalability and interoperability.
  • Bridging the Gap: Recognizing the need for an HPC-enabled scheduler in the current software stack, our innovative product QBridge is poised to fill this void.
