Artiste-qb.net, the quantum computer software company that Henning Dekant and I co-founded recently, is very pleased to announce that we have started a collaboration with the Signa project, whose goal is to produce a universal platform for global monitoring of pandemics. Henning has written a beautiful blog post explaining the motivation behind the Signa Project. Signa is headed and is the brainchild of the multi-talented and visionary Andrew Deonarine, who will start postgraduate work at Harvard by the end of this month. Andrew has submitted a proposal to the MacArthur Foundation’s “$100M and Change” competition. If we don’t win EL Gordo, we will of course pursue other sources of funding. Andrew has prepared a YouTube video
of his vision, which will use as a starting point already existing software written by himself and many others, including our company, artiste-qb.net.
Here is a single frame from Andrew’s video showing the Signa Team so far.
