Entanglement Takes a “Quantum Leap” Towards Transparent Vaccine Distribution
Vaccine Distribution Platform created to help states and local governments solve “data-quality” problems associated with COVID-19 response, and help with implementing effective, transparent, and measurable vaccine plans.
Entanglement leverages breakthrough quantum-inspired optimization to deliver unprecedented speed, accuracy, and iterability
Entanglement Inc., an early-stage deep technology company, has created a state-of-the-art vaccine distribution platform using breakthrough quantum-inspired computing technology and advanced data models to deliver unprecedented capabilities. This optimization solution gives federal, state, and local leaders the ability to simulate and run scenarios to develop and implement effective and equitable vaccination distribution plans in rapidly changing circumstances. This will empower the planners and operators of the COVID-19 response efforts to accelerate vaccinations to U.S. residents.
The company’s platform addresses three common problems associated with the current vaccine management and distribution landscape: (1) poor quality of data, (2) lack of flexibility to adapt to changing conditions, and (3) an inability to optimize and re-optimize plans in real-time.

The U.S. Department of Defense recently validated a similar platform that Entanglement and Fujitsu developed to optimize the equitable distribution of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to all U.S. counties. That platform outperformed a comparative Evolutionary Algorithm by over 90%. Entanglement and Fujitsu then applied these breakthrough capabilities to develop a vaccine distribution and administration model.
“Our ability to navigate through trillions of data points in seconds and derive the ideal solution based on weighted priorities is a critical asset in deciding and acting,” said Paul Puckett, Director of Enterprise Cloud Management in the Office of the Chief Information Officer for the Department of the Army.
The U.S. has struggled with vaccine distribution as the virus continues on a deadly trajectory, but legacy systems, often used by state and local governments, do not have the computing power to address an optimization problem of this magnitude. Even newly unveiled systems of record and logistics platforms are limited in their computational capability to tackle immense and time-sensitive challenges, such as the national response to this pandemic.

Entanglement has reduced the barrier to entry for this advanced computing, by providing equitable access to the technology for small states as well as larger states in the fight against Covid-19. Such equitable access to new technology also applies to NGO’s and non-profits that are willing to work with their local or county governments to provide a technology that is currently not in use. This technology could increase the transparency and efficiency of vaccine distribution in underserved communities that are receiving vaccination response services.
“It is rare to have such an extraordinary opportunity to contribute to something that has immediate global impact,” said Jason Turner, Chairman of Entanglement, Inc. “This breakthrough in complex optimization capability revolutionizes the way leaders develop plans to respond to threats like COVID-19. Never before have such complex scenarios been modeled at scale, and so quickly. I see our team providing the much-needed answer for helping leaders make better-informed decisions that will save lives and help us win the fight against the virus. The Fujitsu Digital Annealer technology represents an important bridge to quantum computing, one that operationalizes real-world applications today. With this important technology, we have created a path to delivering a scalable, equitable, iterative and transparent solution to the vaccine distribution and administration problem.”
“To care for people, you must understand their individual needs and meet those needs regardless of the environment. To care for the people in the United States you must do this for 330 million people,” said Jose Arrieta, former Chief Information Officer and Chief Data Officer, U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services, and an advisor to Entanglement. “Entanglement empowers leaders to understand individual needs and meet those needs in real time for an entire population. This platform is an unmatched solution for an unprecedented time.”
