Quantum impact - Transportation and logistics

Published: 30/10/2020

By viewing problems of transportation and logistics through a quantum lens, we see a profound impact on how goods, services, and people move through cities and around the world. 

Many real-world optimization problems remain unsolvable despite the remarkable advancement in both algorithms and computing power over the past decades. In addition, because of the difficulty of simulating the characteristics of complex molecules, the development of new materials with specific properties—like next-gen batteries—poses huge computational challenges as well. And with quantum breakthroughs in material science, lower emissions and better efficiencies begin to come into focus.
