Collaboration Brings the Power of Quantum Computing to Investment Analytics Platform, Morningstar Direct™
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Infleqtion, the global quantum ecosystem leader, today announced the integration of SuperstaQ, Infleqtion’s flagship quantum software, into Morningstar Direct, Morningstar’s investment and portfolio analysis platform.
The integration of SuperstaQ will allow investors to harness the power of quantum computing through Morningstar Direct’s Analytics Lab module, which lets users program their own “notebooks” to create custom analytics and discover new investment opportunities.
“Combining Morningstar’s data, research and analytics with enhanced solving frameworks and capabilities provided by SuperstaQ will allow investors to experiment, learn and enjoy the benefits of quantum, preparing them for when quantum advantage is achieved,” said Paul Lipman, President of Quantum Information Platforms at Infleqtion.
Infleqtion’s quantum-enabled notebooks, which will live in Analytics Lab, transform specific investment problems, such as building a risk-optimized portfolio, into queries designed for quantum computing. When users execute these quantum formulations through SuperstaQ, they can unlock novel insights.
“We are excited to work with Infleqtion and bring quantum computing to over 17,000 Morningstar Direct users,” said James Rhodes, President of Data, Research and Enterprise Solutions, and Chief Technology Officer at Morningstar. “By combining Morningstar’s data with quantum computing notebooks powered by SuperstaQ, Direct users can explore novel ways in which quantum computing may impact their business.”
Morningstar Direct is an investment and portfolio analysis platform that empowers investor success by helping users tell their investment story. Morningstar Direct unites Morningstar’s data and institutional research with private and third-party content, advanced analytics, data science capabilities, and productivity tools.
SuperstaQ is Infleqtion’s flagship quantum software platform that allows users without quantum expertise to run quantum programs. SuperstaQ communicates directly with quantum computers, sending quantum circuits – that have been optimized for peak performance via a proprietary algorithm – for execution on the hardware’s native gate set.
SuperstaQ was developed by Super.tech, a subsidiary of Infleqtion acquired in May 2022 that makes software and solutions to accelerate the commercial adoption of this burgeoning technology. Super.tech was originally spun out of pioneering quantum computing research from the University of Chicago.
Mr. Lipman will share further details on the collaboration at Q2B, a quantum computing conference in Santa Clara this Wednesday, December 7th, during his keynote session titled, Quantum X Finance: How Super.tech and Morningstar are Empowering Investor Success. Q2B, the world’s largest non-academic quantum industry conference, brings together over 1,000 attendees from commercial companies and research institutions from around the world.
