Welcome to the QAGC (Quantum Algorithm Grand Challenge)!  QAGC is a global online contest for students, researchers, and others who learn quantum computation and quantum chemistry around the world.

What is QAGC?

One effective way to promote science and engineering research is to give researchers and engineers a clear goal and help them come up with new ideas. QAGC offers a quantum algorithm platform that scores proposed algorithms based on the same criteria. By providing a standardized benchmark, we aim to inspire researchers worldwide to improve their algorithms through competition.

As Quantum Computing technology evolves with qubit capacity regularly duplicating, we need to understand how to make better use of Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) devices and create algorithms that will enable industrial applications. To identify how to shape the direction for promoting the NISQ algorithm for practical industrial application, it is important to clarify the evaluation criteria to compare the algorithm's performance and define the key factors to take into account.

Based on this situation, QAGC is aiming at

  • explore practical uses for NISQ devices.

  • visualize bottlenecks in NISQ device utilization.

  • create a metric for benchmarking the NISQ algorithms.
