Griffiss Institute Webinar: MITRE’s Research in Quantum Software Engineering

The Griffiss Institute (GI) Lecture + Education Series is a collaborative effort by Griffiss Institute to bring together local businesses, Air Force Research Laboratory researchers, and academia to expose and inform the Central New York business and research community on technology-driven topics of common interest, and to also promote business development by providing networking opportunities among researchers and attendees.

The MITRE Corporation, a not-for-profit manager of Federally Funded Research and Development Centers, has spent several years exploring the rapidly growing landscape of quantum software tooling, design, and engineering through its MITRE Independent Research program. Joe Clapis, a lead engineer on their quantum software engineering group, would like to share the story of his journey in the next episode of the webinar series.

Between comparing nascent quantum frameworks, studying the practicality of novel quantum algorithms, bridging the gaps between algorithm researchers and software engineers, and building an Intro to Quantum Software semester course for high school and college students, Joe has seen the field evolve from its humble beginnings to the impressive presence it holds today. In this presentation he will share his lessons learned, industry insights, and forecasts for where things are headed in the future.
