Microsoft and KPMG are exploring quantum-inspired solutions to business problems
Microsoft today announced that it is working with KPMG to explore quantum-inspired optimization techniques to solve common business problems. Right now, we don’t have real quantum computing hardware. But simulating quantum effects on classical computers has led to the development of quantum inspired optimization (QIO) algorithms that run on classical hardware for better performance.
Details of the partnership:
- KPMG has built a dedicated team of experts focused on quantum related technologies.
- The team is educating customers about the future capabilities of quantum computers and how to apply emerging capabilities to real-world business problems today.
- The initial collaborative projects are expected to focus on benchmarking solutions to optimize the financial services portfolio and optimize the telecommunications service fleet. The groups plan to share the results in the coming months.
“We are delighted to be working directly with Microsoft research and engineering experts applying Azure Quantum QIO technology to problems,” said Bent Dalager, Global Director of KPMG’s Quantum Center. the most difficult optimization of the customer. “The Azure Quantum platform allows us to explore different solver approaches using the same code, helping to reduce rework and improve efficiency. The common goal for these early projects was to build solution blueprints for common industry optimization problems using Azure Quantum, which we could then make available to more customers across the globe. large scale. ”
