Quantum Technologies – Unleashing Disruptive Potential

Rarely have experts agreed so unanimously on something:

Quantum technologies will become a real game changer, promising a wide range of applications with unprecedented precision and performance.

Whether it’s medicine, logistics or cyber security, whether it’s industrial applications or basic academic research – many of the upcoming developments are hard to foresee, but it is clear that we are looking at an enormous disruptive potential for industry and society.

Bitkom’s Quantum Summit is your possibility to experience the newest developments in quantum technologies.

Connect virtually on 26 and 27 May 2021 with major players from both the provider and the user side, with researchers, startups, politicians and public administration, as well as internationals guests.

We will provide an overview and an introduction to quantum technologies and show how today’s decisions – politically, economically and technologically – are shaping the future in Europe and across the world.

In interactive sessions you will have the opportunity to exchange knowledge with quantum experts and decision makers and get to know some of the first applications of quantum technologies.

You will be able to learn about the most pressing questions, such as technical challenges, political regulation, and interdisciplinary cooperation.

The field of possible applications for quantum solutions is vast – at the Quantum Summit you will learn which concrete solutions already exist, how they are shaping the technology landscape as we know it and which role Europe will play in this.

Large-scale hybrid quantum computing solution of linear systems of equations

The state-of-the-art noisy intermediate-scale quantum devices, although imperfect, enable computational tasks that are manifestly beyond the capabilities of modern classical supercomputers. However, present quantum computations are restricted to exploring specific simplified protocols, whereas the implementation of full-scale quantum algorithms aimed at solving concrete large-scale problems arising in data analysis and numerical modeling remains a challenge.

Here we realize a hybrid quantum/classical algorithm for solving one of the emergent pressing problems, linear systems of equations, that utilizes quantum phase estimation, one of the exemplary core protocols for quantum computing. We introduce theoretically classes of linear systems that are suitable for current generation hybrid quantum machines andsolve experimentally a 130,000-dimensional problem on superconducting IBMQ devices, which is a record in a linear system solution on real quantum computers.

Also, we establish the algorithm on the cutting-edge Quantum Cloud QMWare that consolidates high-performance classical computing, hybrid quantum computing, and machine learning. Leveraging the impressive power of the QMWare hardware and software stack, we show the ability to solve much larger problems up to 2^{37} linear equations in a system.

The considered large-scale algorithm shows superiority over conventional solutions and demonstrates the advantages of hybrid quantum data processing.
