Software Engineering of Industrial, Hybrid Quantum Applications and Algorithms
The SEQUOIA – Software Engineering of Industrial, Hybrid Quantum Applications and Algorithms – research project studies how quantum computing can be used practically in companies and in which applications the technology can yield the greatest benefits. The focus is on the competences required for the development of quantum applications, especially processes, methods, tools, and skills. Through the SEQUOIA business network, there is a close exchange with stakeholders from industry. In addition to the FZI, the SEQUOIA consortium includes the Fraunhofer Institutes IAO, IAF and IPA as well as the Universities of Stuttgart and Tübingen.
SEQUOIA is one of six joint projects funded by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Economics to actively integrate experts from science and industry into the Competence Center Quantum Computing Baden-Württemberg. The work of the FZI includes the modeling of hybrid quantum applications for the analysis, evaluation, and prediction of quality properties as well as the specification and verification of hybrid quantum applications.
Together with partners from industry, the consortium has developed six use cases and implemented them as hybrid quantum applications.
In the project the study “Quantencomputing in der industriellen Applikation” (“Quantum Computing in Industrial Application”) was made.
