NQCG Unveils Artificial Intelligence Platform for Investment Decisions in Quantum- and Nanotechnology, with Lockheed Martin as Early Adopter

Nordic Quantum Computing Group (NQCG) today announced a new platform to locate, asses and translate business, legal and science data into actionable business intelligence. The new platform will have initial use from Lockheed Martin, a leading aerospace and defence company. The platform leverages state-of-the-art artificial intelligence techniques to inform business development and investment decisions.

NQCG will collaborate with Lockheed Martin Corporation to build the new platform known as Institute of Future Technologies (IFT). The platform will play an important role in building tomorrow’s market leaders in emerging technologies, by providing industrial corporations and financial investors advanced data analytics and business intelligence tools. The platform will initially offer guided analysis for investing in the areas of quantum and nanotechnology.

The new platform will be accessible through a web-browser and in mobile environments. It will enable a deeper level of search, reaching across the entire web to sort and organize data pertaining to a specified subject. The platform then assesses the data to provide actionable intelligence that is stored in digital libraries and customized based on relevance.

“Combining Lockheed Martin and NQCG competence and technology will create a unique platform that will give us global access to new investment opportunities in quantum and nanotechnology,” said Dr. Brent M. Segal, Corporate Technology Scout, and director of Advanced Research Programs, Corporate Engineering Technology and Operations, Lockheed Martin. “This first of its kind system will enable technical business analysts to streamline the review of vast business, intellectual property and science data to make favourable business decisions. We see potential for this tool to greatly improve the efficacy of business operations and provide a competitive edge.”

“We are very pleased to have been selected by Lockheed Martin to deliver this cutting-edge defence-oriented platform.  Combining the unique capabilities of NQCG with Lockheed Martin global market presence and profound understanding of the security and aerospace industries is an important step in our ambition of delivering the worlds’ leading business intelligence platform for quantum and nanotechnology related industries in future multi-billion dollar global markets,” says Axel P. Mustad, Founder and CEO of NQCG. “This platform aims to automate parts of a global technology scouting process, helping Industry to find, assess and invest in emerging tech opportunities smarter and faster with better outcomes than before”.
