Quantum simulation is a powerful tool that allows companies to explore new ideas in materials science, AI, security, finance, and other frontier
Simulation in the quantum regime leverages the unique hardware properties of different types of quantum
computers and simulators as well as quantum-based programming techniques. Problems that can be solved
with simulation include:
Modeling quantum mechanics-based interactions and processes in nature (with strong materials science applications)
Determining solutions to highly complex algorithms in security
Performing quantum optimization in conjunction with AI to find answers to problems in finance, materials science,and other fields
The potency of quantum simulation lies in the ability to use it to take an optimized, rapid-prototyping-style approach to problems that are normally time-consuming or impossible to model classically.
