Item 8.01 Other Events

 

On March 23, 2020, Quantum Computing Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) and Splunk, Inc., (NASDAQ: SPLK) (“Splunk”) entered into Technology Alliance Partnership Agreement (the “TAP Agreement”). Splunk’s technology is designed to investigate, monitor, analyze and act on data at any scale, from any source over any time period. Splunk turns data into doing with the “Data-to-Everything™” Platform. The Company plans to partner with Splunk to do both fundamental and applied research and develop analytics that exploit conventional large-data cybersecurity stores and data-analytics workflows, combined with quantum-ready graph and constrained-optimization algorithms. These algorithms will initially be developed using the Company’s Mukai software platform, which enables quantum-ready algorithms to execute on classical hardware and also to run without modification on quantum computer hardware when ready.

Once proofs of concept are completed, the Company and Splunk intend to develop new analytics with these algorithms in the Splunk data-analytics platform, to evaluate quantum analytics readiness on real-world data. The Splunk platform/toolkits help customers address challenging analytical problems via neural nets or custom algorithms, extensible to Deep Learning frameworks through an open source approach that incorporates existing and custom libraries. The initial research efforts under the Technology Alliance Partnership agreement with Splunk will focus on three key challenges; network security and dynamic logistics and scheduling.

 

On March 24, 2020, the Company issued a press release announcing the entry into the TAP Agreement with Splunk. The press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
