​The coordination office QT.NMWP.NRW which is dedicated to bring quantum technology scientists and industry in NRW together and foster know-how transfer in the region, invited ML4Q member, Frank Wilhelm-Mauch, to join the online event “A Quantum Christmas”. The event which looks at prospects of industrial use cases for quantum computing was organized together with Leichtbau BW.

In his talk, Wilhelm-Mauch gave a brief overview on the quantum advantage in computing processes and touched upon current challenges in developing the needed hardware platforms. He also presented some use cases for the industry including using quantum computing for the optimization of machining processes. Other talks included the “QuantiCom” project at the DLR, ion-based quantum computing platforms developed at eleQtron as well as opportunities for quantum simulations in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry presented by HQS Quantum Simulations.
