  • Brief description of your project / the project you would like to join:

    In this project, the goal is to analyse the feasibility of different quantum computing approaches for the purpose of evaluating which quantum computing approach is suitable for which industrial application in terms of cost, performance and complexity of implementation. Therefore we will apply three different use cases onto several different quantum computing concepts. These use cases we have selected, because they have shown a quantum computing benefit in previous publications. The first use case is an optimization problem, which is relevant for optimization of logistics, optimal packaging, resource optimal cutting for example of a sheet metal and an optimization of a matrix production for example for a semi-conductor production site. The second use case is from the material sciences, where molecules interact in a quantum mechanics manner, such as in hydrogen fuel cells. The third use case covers the topic of edge computing, meaning bringing quantum computing into an edge device, which is directly mounted at the e.g. production machine. The quantum computing technologies used in this project will be the following: 1: Real Quantum Computer based on NISQ Technology 2: Real Quantum Computer based on Annealing Technology 3: Digital Annealing Quantum Computer 4: Quantum Simulation on a classical computer 5: Quantum Simulation on an Edge Device 6: Hybrid Quantum Computing Since the consortiums lead Fraunhofer IPA has already started working with the IBM Q-One (in the project SEQUOIA, see link below), with exlusive access to this system, which was built up for Fraunhofer near Stuttgart Germany, Fraunhofer has already extensive knowledge of Quantum Computing. https://www.ipa.fraunhofer.de/de/referenzprojekte/SEQUOIA.html
