IPqwery reports that the firm has six trademark registrations, the most common of which is in the “Science and technology services” category.
Company’s first online training course
Zapta computing,Inc announced its first online training course, “Quantum Training for Enterprise”, with a goal of helping enterprises become quantum- ready.
The course was developed with the support of QURECA and may be found on their website. The modules in “Quantum Training for Enterprise” can be completed at your own pace, and they cover both the fundamentals of quantum computing and the issues and repercussions that the field is currently facing.
Zapta’s multi-step Roadmap to Quantum Advantage and client recommendations for app, infrastructure, and contract construction are covered in this course.

Zapta computing Aims to be the market leader in quantum algorithms and software, providing a complete toolset for solving problems on near term quantum computers.
Zapta’s hybrid quantum-classical method is made to get the most out of the limited number of qubits that will be available in the next few years. This will help a wide range of industries, such as chemicals, automotive, aerospace, and finance.
Zapta Computing’s Global Survey
Zapta Computing recently commissioned global survey designed to determine how enterprise plans to integrate quqntum computing into business. Zapta’s resulting global survey, “The First Annual Report on Enterprise Quantum Computing Adoption”, is very comprehensive. It’s available free to download on Zapta’s website. The report contains straightforward, valuable insights dealing with global enterprise attitude on variety of issues including future quantum use, budgeting and planning.
Zapata surveyed 300 CIOs, CTOs, and other VP-level and above executives of large global enterprises with estimated 2021 revenue greater thanb$250 million and estimated computing, budgets over $1M.
How Zapta Computing preparing Business for a Quantum Era :
Zapata Computing’s co-founders first crossed paths while engaged in seminal work on the development of quantum algorithms for the near future at Harvard University in Boston. Software choices for organizations that leverage quantum computing are best provided by Zapata Computing. There’s no reason to keep looking for such a business. Many sectors could benefit from this as they look ahead to a future in which quantum computing technology plays a crucial role.
Christopher Savoie, as part of his research, is looking into how businesses may prepare for the advent of the quantum age. He considers the potential applications of quantum technology and provides a rundown of sectors that stand to benefit greatly from adopting it. Some examples include the automotive and logistics industries as well as the safety and security sector. Savoie covers a vast range of subjects, but they are all interconnected in some way. Additionally, Christopher shares some of the incredible insights gained throughout their time with Andretti Autosport.
Who is Christopher Savoie :
With extra education in biology and chemistry, Christopher Savoie is a specialist in the interdisciplinary field of machine learning. The range of this researcher’s research goes well beyond medicine, touching on biology and even computer science. Christopher’s AAOSA, a prototype of a natural language conversation system driven by AI, was as the inspiration for Apple’s Siri. The person in question started businesses and ran them until they were sold or went public. In addition, he was in charge of leading Nissan’s big data analytics operations.
As a board member for the US Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C), Christopher is an active member of the organization. Attorney Christopher served as the American Bar Association’s big data committee’s vice chair in the past.People think of him as an expert in the field. He knows a lot about how AI, big data, IT security, and data privacy affect ethics and the law. He has also given talks and workshops for lawyers who want to learn more about these subjects.
Funds raised by Zapta :
The company said it had raised $38 million in Series B funding. This round of funding came from Comcast Ventures, Pitango, and Prelude Ventures. New investors include Ahren Innovation Capital, Alumni Ventures Group, Honeywell Venture Capital, ITOCHU Corporation, and Merck Global Health Innovation Fund.
Funds raised by Zapta
After a good Series A round of funding, this round of funding comes next. It shows how secure investors are in quantum computers and how quickly Zapata has grown in the last year.
Zapata’s recent paper covers quantum hardware, learning quantum machines, and using quantum.
The company has also launched Orquestra®, a new workflow management tool made just for quantum computers. IBM, Honeywell, IonQ, and other big clients and hardware partners are helping Zapata release this breakthrough technology faster.
