A Very Brief History of Very Large Numbers
What is the largest number of which you can conceive? This question has driven mathematicians and scientists for millennia, challenging the greatest minds of every era. In ancient India, a sacred text called the Yajurveda from around 1000 BCE named numbers based on the power of ten up to a quadrillion, or 1012. Building on…

White Paper on QuADD shows Marked Advantage Versus Conventional Library Builds
Polaris Quantum Biotech (POLARISqb) leverages quantum computing to accelerate drug discovery, revolutionizing the way that molecular drug design is accomplished. The company released a white paper on the advantages of using the POLARISqb platform Quantum-Aided Drug Design (QuADD) for library generation. An enriched starting library of diverse and drug-like molecules increases the probability of quickly…

POLARISqb talks with QuBites from Valorem Reply

QuBites S6 E6

We were excited to engage in this fantastic conversation with Rene Schulte about our company and the work that we are doing. He talks with our CEO, Dr. Shahar Keinan, about  utilizing the power of quantum optimization to power the quantum drug discovery we have made in the last three years. The episode talks about the progress in quantum annealers for multi-variable optimization, progress in the sector that is using AI and Machine Learning, and how that progress is integrated into the Tachyon system that POLARISqb has built to accelerate drug design. Dr. Keinan talks about how we are translating chemistry constraints into QUBOs that are able to be used via quantum computing to optimize multiple interconnected variables in ways that conventional high powered computers would still take months or even years to solve.

Hackathons Power Collaboration and Innovation
An essential part of our philosophy for success in drug discovery is our quarterly hackathon, a hands-on technical challenge that our entire team works together to solve. As a data and science-led organization, these hackathons keep our team working collaboratively across departments and integrating innovations from across the fields of bioscience, pharmaceuticals, computing, and quantum…
