The GI Education + Lecture Series will present MITRE’s Research in Quantum Software Engineering from 11 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Oct. 20, via online webinar. The free, interactive discussion will feature Joe Clapis, Lead Software Systems engineer with The MITRE Corporation.
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.
Clapis, a lead engineer on their quantum software engineering group, will share the story of his journey. 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, Clapis has seen the field evolve from its humble beginnings to the impressive presence it holds today, event organizers said. The webinar is free and open to the public. Interested parties are asked to register by 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 20 at https://www.griffissinstitute.org/gi-lecture-education-series.
The GI Lecture + Education Series is a collaborative effort, bringing 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.
Clapis is a Lead Software Systems engineer at The MITRE Corporation. He has more than 10 years of experience in a variety of software domains, from machine vision to virtualization, and now currently works on quantum software systems. His latest research involves bridging the gap between quantum algorithm theories and their practical implementations and developing educational material to bolster the quantum software workforce.
