Dr Nagendra Nagaraja CEO and Founder of QpiAI quoted, “The pre-series A round of QpiAI will be remembered as a landmark funding round in Indian Deeptech. This round should allow us to lay a foundation of intelligence modelling and intelligence compute via Quantum computers and Generative AI. This funding will enable us to achieve breakthrough innovation in vertical integration of Generative AI and Quantum computing in enterprise and industrial applications. We will also be demonstrating 25 Qubit Quantum computers in our Bangalore HQ by Q4 CY2024/ Q1 CY 2025. With integration of HPC built out of our lab infra and integration all our 7 Quantum and Generative AI platforms we will have prototype of Quantum-HPC QpiAI datacenter, this can be scaled further to offer QCaaS (Quantum Compute as a Service). There is also good traction with our current customers to provide Quantum-HPC solutions with our software and compute infra. A very advanced Compute infra with Quantum capability that we will be deploying with this funding will allow us to innovate in Generative AI and Quantum software. QpiAI Quantum and AI stack, including hardware and software, will have tremendous impact on pharma, non-energy transition materials, chemicals, manufacturing, logistics and finance.”

Dr Nagendra further added, “There is also tremendous traction in the B2G segment with QpiAI thought leadership in Quantum and AI that has helped shape technology and infrastructure roadmaps. QpiAI is a Global company with its HQ in Bangalore, India and subsidiaries in US and Finland. As we work with Global enterprises and Governments including the US, Europe, Japan, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, we will be expanding our presence in these regions to create value to our customers and partners.”

Dr Manjunath R.V., Vice President for Quantum computers QpiAI, further added, “Building Scalable Quantum computers that can solve real world problems and bolster our industry verticals is a very key technology development. At QpiAI, we are very excited to have our own Quantum computers to further build Quantum and AI data centers. Our team is really happy to have multiple QPUs in our dilution refrigerator to make sure we achieve high quality quantum compute infrastructure. We can’t wait to see the next steps in our roadmap to advance Quantum computers scaling 25 qubits to 1000 qubits.”

Sachin Kumar, Lakshya Priyadarshi and Aswanth Krishnan, who leads software products and solutions on Generative AI and Quantum software, suggested, “In the last 4 years, we were able to commercialize our software platforms and achieve traction across large bluechip enterprise customers. With this funding and with all our 7 software products ready to scale, we envision scaling our software platforms globally. We anticipate a great time ahead for us. There is lot of customer interest to see QpiAI Quantum and AI software platform working on QpiAI Quantum-AI HPC datacenters to implement their next gen applications in pharma, materials, fintech, automotive and manufacturing.”

Sunil Goyal MD, Yournest who led the funding round, further added, "By investing in QpiAI, we're helping to propel India to the leading edge of quantum computing. This technology has the potential to revolutionize fields like materials science, drug discovery, automotive, and manufacturing. QpiAI's innovative approach makes them a key player in unlocking this potential, and we're thrilled to join Dr. Nagendra and the QpiAI team on this exciting journey."

Debraj Banerjee, President at SIDBI Venture capital and Board of Director of QpiAI who led the funding round from SIDBI ventures, further added, “SVCL is very excited to be part of this very important deeptech journey of national importance. Quantum computers will change the world when we commercialize it. The technology is of immense importance for national security and advance computation. Having a home-grown Quantum computer will be very important for our national institutes to further our progress in computation technologies. We are eagerly looking forward to a working 25 qubit machine from QpiAI by Q4 of CY24 /Q1 CY25.

Ramesh Radhakrishnan, a very successful serial entrepreneur, a veteran VC and Board of Director at QpiAI, further added, “Quantum computers and AI are the future for all applied technologies in many different market segments including pharma, transport, cybersecurity, and financial among others. Integrating Application software with Quantum System software and hardware to make AI and Quantum computing work together is a fundamental innovation whose significance is going to be enormous. With centers in the US and Finland, QpiAI is well positioned to scale Quantum and AI technologies and address markets globally. I am very excited to be a part of this wonderful journey.”

New Esri Press Book by Jack Dangermond Explores Creating a Better Future through Modern GIS17.7.2024 20:46:00 CEST | Press release

Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced the publication next month of The Power of Where: A Geographic Approach to the World's Greatest Challenges. Written by Esri president Jack Dangermond with a dedicated Esri team and numerous contributors, this important new book explores the geographic approach—a way of solving problems using spatial analysis to perceive and understand patterns ranging from wildlife migration and rising seas to urban planning and food production. According to Dangermond, sustainability begins with geography. "I believed this when we started Esri, and I'm even more convinced today," says Dangermond. "GIS [geographic information system technology] provides a platform for addressing problems, exploring alternatives, designing solutions, and sharing them in a visual way that inspires action." The Power of Where shows through maps and stories how the growing GIS community is facing humanity's big challenges, including climate change, hunger, w

Egle Therapeutics to share preclinical data for its first autoimmune disease program, EGL-003, with an oral presentation at the 2024 Promise of Interleukin-2 Therapy Meeting17.7.2024 18:00:00 CEST | Press release

Egle Therapeutics, a biotechnology company focused on advancing the next generation of regulatory T cell-focused therapies for oncology and auto-immunity, will deliver an oral presentation at The Promise of Interleukin-2 Therapy meeting taking place in Paris from September 4th to 7th, 2024. The presentation, entitled “EGL-003, a novel IL-2 mutein to selectively expand and activate regulatory T cells and improve therapeutic efficacy in autoimmune disease”, will show evidence that EGL-003, a non-targeted Fc-fused IL-2 agonist mutein, selectively binds to regulatory T cells (Treg) and induces Treg IL-2 signaling. The resulting increase of Treg frequencies was observed in vitro and in different mouse models. Accordingly, EGL-003 significantly improved clinical, macroscopic, and histological parameters in a DSS-induced colitis mouse model with expansion of tissue-resident Tregs. EGL-003 is the first drug candidate being developed for treatment of autoimmune diseases in Egle’s pipeline and h
