  • Solving optimization problems with quantum computing / 2022

    Research project launches for easy access to quantum computing for small and large companies

    Press Release / February 03, 2022

    In the future, quantum computers will be able to solve highly complex tasks that traditional computers have failed to do so far. In the QuaST project, which is funded by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action, seven partners from science and industry are researching how to make quantum computing as easily accessible as possible for small and large companies. The aim is to provide end users with a toolbox that they can use in different situations, for example to optimize production processes, for business forecasting and also to significantly increase efficiency.

    A ceremonial event will be held on the evening of December 3 to open the new Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS in Munich. Its research will focus on safety aspects of artificial intelligence: safe intelligence. The two areas of safety and intelligence are normally regarded separately but will now be combined. Fraunhofer IKS will be a central component of the State of Bavaria’s »Artificial Machine Intelligence« competence network. Six new professorships are being created for the institute’s work, including four at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). Guests of honor at the opening ceremony on the evening of December 3 will include Dr. Markus Söder, Minister-President of the State of Bavaria; State Secretary Hubert Aiwanger; Prof. Reimund Neugebauer, President of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and Prof. Thomas F. Hofmann, President of TU Munich.
