Digital Annealer - Quantum Computing Technology, Available Today

Optimise and innovate with Fujitsu’s Quantum-Inspired computing technology - performance that is generations ahead

Fujitsu's Digital Annealer provides an alternative to quantum computing technology, which is at present both very expensive and difficult to run. Using a digital circuit design inspired by quantum phenomena, the Digital Annealer focuses on rapidly solving complex combinatorial optimisation problems without the added complications and costs typically associated with quantum computing methods.

The Digital Annealer computational architecture bridges the gap to the quantum world and paves the way for much faster, more efficient solving of today’s business problems. Our quantum-inspired computing solution is designed to solve large-scale combinatorial optimisation problems which are unsolvable using today’s classical computers.

Optimise and innovate with the Digital Annealer technology solution

Fujitsu IT Products Limited required a solution to optimise routing and in-stock parts placement. By reducing the time required to select parts and the distance covered by optimising routes, shelf layout, and parts placement, Digital Annealer effectively reduced the overall travel distance by up to 45%.

Fujitsu Digital Annealer Quantum-Inspired Computing: Real world use cases

Automotive: Factory Optimisation

Automotive: Factory Optimisation

Car manufacturers are looking to improve production efficiencies in order to accelerate deployment of new vehicles. Tasks include logistics improvements, vehicle design and robotics optimisation. Digital Annealer-powered production aims to identify errors and flaws such as corrosion, defects, and quality issues immediately improving overall production planning and ultimately vehicle delivery.

Bio/Material Science: Faster Molecular Similarity Search

Chemical and pharmaceutical laboratories use molecular similarity searching, which partially extracts molecule characteristics to search for new substances and to develop new drugs. Digital Annealer-powered research explores entire molecular structures without relying on extraction, thereby enabling accurate, instant similarity searching.

Banking and Financial Services: Low-Risk Portfolio Optimization

Banking and Financial Services: Low-Risk Portfolio Optimisation

The Digital Annealer-powered portfolio solution finds the ideal investment allocation to maximize returns by grouping stocks that correlate with price variations, enabling portfolios to be managed with accuracy and reduced risk. The Digital Annealer solution can instantly find the best permutation from among 20 or more stocks (equivalent to more than one quintillion permutations).

Distribution: Warehouse Inventory Management

In factories and distribution warehouses, the time it takes workers to walk around picking parts can be lengthy. Using the Digital Annealer within its own factory environment, the Fujitsu IT services team was able to optimise routes and in-stock part placement, enabling workers to successfully reduce distance traveled by up to 45%, significantly increasing productivity.
