Production & Logistics: Quantum algorithms for multi-knapsack optimization problems
Optimizing modern supply chains is one of the most important potential application areas for quantum computing. In our new paper submitted to the Computing Conference 2023, we explore the potential of the technology in solving application-oriented optimization problems.Read more
"For an innovation to achieve impact, it’s a question of applicability, not technological potential."
Quantum computing is still in its infancy. Nevertheless, investments that go beyond funding the further development of hardware are crucial to this phase, says Dr.-Ing. Susan Wegner, Vice President for Artificial Intelligence & Data Analytics at Lufthansa Industry Solutions. In our interview, she explains why her company joined QUTAC, how it is involved in the consortium and what digital sovereignty means to her.Read more
“Only markets make the development of quantum solutions economically attractive.”
The industrialisation of quantum computing requires not only basic technology, but also a functioning market, says Dr. Andre Luckow, Head of the Department for New Technologies at BMW Group IT. In this interview, he explains how QUTAC intends to strengthen the development of industrial applications and hot the BMW Group, both within the consortium and beyond, is involved in the field of quantum computing.Read more
"Quantum computing will become a key enabling technology"
Quantum technologies will trigger a series of disruptive innovations, says BASF Chairman of the Board Dr. Martin Brudermüller. In an interview, he explains what we can expect from this new technology, the challenges involved in its development and why now is exactly the right time to establish an industry consortium like QUTAC.Read more
