D-Wave Quantum (NYSE: QBTS), a leader in quantum computing systems, software, and services, focused on delivering customer value via practical quantum applications, has announced a collaboration with QuantumBasel and VINCI Energies, an accelerator of environmental and digital transition, to explore quantum solutions for industrial construction. QuantumBasel and VINCI Energies will work on the research and development of a series of quantum-hybrid applications – which will use D-Wave’s annealing quantum computers and quantum hybrid solvers through the Leap(TM) quantum cloud service – to provide VINCI Energies with real-time access to quantum solutions.
“Construction projects feature a multitude of optimization challenges that can contribute to cost overruns and delayed building completions when not adequately addressed. We believe today’s quantum-hybrid technologies can help solve these computationally complex problems to drive efficiencies and streamline building processes and look forward to working with VINCI Energies and uptownBasel to bring quantum to the construction industry,” said Dr. Alan Baratz, CEO of D-Wave (https://ibn.fm/jt271).
VINCI Energies will explore the capabilities that quantum computing offers in addressing quality improvement (i.e. shorter compute time and lower costs) of generated HVAC network solutions. VINCI Energies, QuantumBasel, and D-Wave have reached a stage where they have two model formulations that will be used for experimentation during the early stages of the second phase.
Dr. Reinhard Schlemmer, Member of the Board of VINCI Energies, explained that his company designs and builds facilities that help improve daily life and mobility for all, with a constant eye on sustainability and environmental responsibility. “We believe that today’s quantum technology can play a key role in ensuring optimal and efficient construction and operation of buildings and are eager to use D-Wave’s quantum solutions in support of that effort,” he added.
D-Wave’s Leap(TM) quantum cloud service delivers immediate, real-time access to the company’s Advantage(TM) Quantum Computer and quantum hybrid solver service, with enterprise-class performance and scalability. Leap(TM) allows customers to develop quantum hybrid applications for use cases in manufacturing, logistics, financial services, life sciences, materials science, retail, and transportation. It helps businesses accelerate solutions to their complex computing problems.
With the Advantage(TM) Quantum Computer, D-Wave has incorporated two decades of experience and over ten years of customer feedback to create the first quantum computer designed for business applications. This innovative platform features a new processing architecture with over 5,000 qubits and 15-way qubit connectivity – 2.5 times more connections and more than double the number of qubits than its previous generation annealing quantum computer.
