“Google and Volkswagen will explore the potential of quantum computers for the transport industry

Google and Volkswagen AG on Tuesday announced collaboration in the field of researching potential applications of quantum computers for solving transport problems, writes The Wall Street Journal.

Google will provide a quantum computer, and his staff, together with colleagues from the it division of Volkswagen will study the optimization of traffic flows, the structure of new materials, high-performance batteries for electric vehicles, as well as the possibilities of machine learning and artificial intelligence.

“We at Volkswagen want to be the first to use quantum computing for enterprise processes as soon as this technology becomes available for commercial application,” said Volkswagen chief Director of it Martin Hoffman.

Google is considered one of the leaders in this field, and in the following year, the quantum computer will be an important test: he tries to solve a complex computational task that would take a conventional computer billions of years.
