Are you ready to begin your quantum journey?
Classiq is back with its Classiq Quest Quantum Hackathon, inviting individuals and teams alike to participate in an exciting competition that combines learning and innovation. This year, the event spans two crucial phases, the Classiq Bootcamp and the Classiq Quest Hackathon, each offering a unique opportunity to dive deep into the world of quantum computing while competing for substantial rewards. In fact, there’s a $15,000 prize pool to encourage you on this journey.
Here are the details:
Classiq Bootcamp: October 1-5
The Classiq Bootcamp starts on October 1 and concluding on October 5. This five-day intensive training program is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills required to harness the power of quantum algorithms effectively. Hosted on the Classiq platform, the Bootcamp will provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of quantum algorithms and how to leverage them to their full potential.
During the Bootcamp, participants will tackle a series of challenges, honing their quantum algorithm design, optimization, and execution skills. Prizes, including a total of $3,000 worth of gift cards, will be distributed among those who successfully complete the challenges, making it an educational experience that also offers tangible incentives.
Classiq Quest Hackathon: October 8-11
Following the Bootcamp, the Classiq Quest Hackathon kicks off on October 8 and runs until October 11. This four-day hackathon comprises both open challenges and well-defined tasks, giving participants a chance to demonstrate their quantum prowess.
One of the defining features of the Classiq Quest Hackathon is its inclusivity. Participants can choose to work individually or form teams of up to four members, ensuring that quantum enthusiasts from all walks of life can collaborate and compete.
In the Hackathon, first prize is $1,500, second prize is $700 and third prize is $300.
This year’s hackathon revolves around three themes:
Quantum Applications in Various Industries
Participants will be tasked with developing quantum algorithms to address real-world problems in diverse industries such as Chemistry, Finance, Material Science, Cybersecurity and more. This theme encourages innovative solutions that could potentially reshape these sectors.
Quantum Utility through Advanced Algorithms
In this category, participants are challenged to harness the full potential of today’s quantum computers by creating algorithms that maximize their capabilities. This theme pushes the boundaries of quantum computing and encourages participants to explore uncharted territories.
Quantum Education with a Focus on Intuitive Learning
Education takes center stage as participants develop quantum algorithms that incorporate intuitive graphics and visualizations. This theme aims to make quantum concepts more accessible and engaging, paving the way for a new generation of quantum learners.
The Classiq Quest Quantum Hackathon promises learning, collaboration and innovation. With the doors wide open to both seasoned quantum experts and newcomers to the field, it’s an opportunity for all to be part of the quantum revolution and make a tangible impact on real-world challenges. The fusion of education and competition promises a brighter future where quantum computing plays an increasingly vital role in solving complex problems across various domains. Join the quest, and let the quantum journey begin.
