Entering the era of quantum – acceleration and transformation

Moving towards achieving a quantum advantage 

It is now clear that advances in our understanding of quantum technology are opening up remarkable and ground-breaking potential in many areas of the world around us. Quantum computational power and speed could help us solve some of the most intractable problems we face; quantum communication technology could provide extra communication security and quantum sensors the most accurate measurements on earth and in space.

However, this is still in the future, as we are currently in an industrious period of fast-paced exploratory research and discovery, pushing beyond current conventional limits. And we believe turning this disruptive technology into practical applications is not too far in the distance. Once perceived to be science fiction, quantum is now turning into science fact, with significant investment in hardware, software, and use case investigation.

Capgemini’s Quantum Lab has a role to play – helping our clients understand the future possibilities of quantum technologies and building their organization and strategy that will make the potential become a reality.

      Exploring the possibilities of quantum

      So what is actually possible? With substantial investment inflows, more and more companies, on both supply and demand sides, are assessing the most important use cases, testing proofs of concepts and prototypes,and also evaluating live small-scale trials. Each step brings us closer to quantum as a mainstream reality.

      A clear example is an Horizon Europe project. Capgemini is leading and coordinating the EQUALITY consortium of industry partners, which is targeting eight industrial use cases that are computationally complex and can benefit from the quantum-enabled speed-up. These are airfoil aerodynamics, battery design, fluid dynamics, space mission optimization, materials design, multidisciplinary optimization, space data analysis and fuel cell design. Not only could this provide a competitive edge for European industry, but also more energy-efficient aerodynamics and more durable and affordable batteries are critical to propelling these industries towards zero emissions.

      These organizations are taking the long view – looking ahead to when the technology becomes much more accessible and scalable, and therefore commercially viable – and making the appropriate strategic investment in a range of resources. The importance is to start exploring, and this is particularly imperative when it comes to quantum security, where we advise that companies do not wait for standards to emerge.

      Our approach is to partner with clients, to identify priority use cases, and showcase the applications of quantum technology through our labs and Applied Innovation Exchange network. We carry out early experimentation and incubation – in the following key sectors – ultimately, to deliver a quantum advantage.

      Our dedicated Quantum Lab is a global network of quantum experts, partners, and specialist research facilities from across the Group, combined with domain knowledge. We leverage this expertise in our exploratory and advisory work with clients, in cutting-edge applications that will bring our clients closer to gaining an advantage. Typically we focus on quantum simulation, optimization, and machine learning, and access to partners’, such as IBM’s, quantum machines and licensed technology, co-working on evolving hardware and software.

      The reality is, however, there is more to quantum than hardware and algorithms in use case silos. In time, quantum applications means planning for integration into the larger IT landscape, testing, scaling up, and deployment. Our quantum exploration has been recognized in a spotlight quantum report from analysts TBR.
