Co-founders: Sumitaka Koga, CEO and Representative Director
Dr. Nozomu Togawa, CSO & Board Director
Quanmatic is a startup that researches, develops, and commercializes quantum algorithms based on the technology of Professor Nozomu Togawa (School of Science and Engineering, Waseda University), a leading researcher in information engineering and quantum computing algorithms. Professor Togawa specializes in quantum algorithms that maximize the efficiency of current quantum hardware. His technology enables hardware to solve realistic calculations without reducing the accuracy of the problems. It is possible to formulate complex and large-size problems by combining the "dark spin method," the "multi-flip method," and the "bit-width reduction method," invented by Professor Togawa and others.
Associate Professor Shu Tanaka (Faculty of Science and Technology, Keio University), a leading researcher in the field of operating principles of Ising machines, quantum simulation, and industrial application of quantum technology is involved in Quanmatic, for efficient operation of quantum hardwares through his deep knowledge of quantum technology and quantum computing.
Sumitaka Kooga, Cofounder & CEO
Sumitaka engaged in developing a computational physics model to simulate ocean turbulence during his days in Kyoto University. After graduation, he pursued a business career as Management Consultant, followed by a role in operational transformation in the high tech industry, including deploying several cutting-edge digital solutions. His primary roles in Quanmatic are to set the strategic direction to leverage quantum technology to solve real world problems and to build the organization to enable organization to achieve the corporate objectives. Sumitaka holds a Masters degree in Science from Kyoto University.
Nozomu Togawa PhD, Co-Founder & CSO
Nozomu is the leading researcher in algorithm development as relate to quantum computing. As his name “Nozomu 望“, (meaning “wish” in Japanese) implies, Nozomu holds a strong desire to deliver quantum technologies to real world, which drove him to take on initiatives in several government committees, projects and industry collaborations in addition to his academic role as a Professor of Faculty of Science and Engineering, and the Dean of School of the Fundamental Science and Engineering in Waseda University. Nozomu obtained Doctor of Engineering from Waseda University.
Shu Tanaka Ph.D., CTO
Shu started his academic career in Statistical Mechanics in Tokyo Institute of Technology with Hidetoshi Nishimori. After graduation, Shu pursued an academic career in Applied Physics, Physico-Informatics and Quantum computing in several academic institutes including Keio University, The University of Tokyo, Kyoto University and Waseda University. Shu currently works as Associate Professor in Keio University while serving as the Vice Director of World Premier International Research Center Initiative (WPI), Human Biology Microbiome Quantum Research Center (Bio2Q). Shu obtained a Ph.D. in Science from University of Tokyo.
Yosuke Mukasa, CPO
Yosuke is renowned for developing several quantum algorithms and applications including the web app “ANCAR” funded by Information-technology Promotion Agency (IPA) as a part of the “Mitou Target” program under the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. He is leading the development of propriety products for Quanmatic based on several Graph Theory-based mathematical algorithms to boost the performance of Quantum and Quantum inspired hardware. Yosuke holds a Masters degree in Engineering from Waseda University.
