Fujitsu to Showcase Latest Advances in Quantum-Inspired Computing at Mobile World Congress 2018

Fujitsu EMEIA

Munich, February 15, 2018 - At Mobile World Congress 2018, Fujitsu will showcase how it is at the forefront of the next wave of computing technology. With its pioneering work to accelerate the application of Quantum Computing concepts, visitors will be able to see how Fujitsu addresses real-world business challenges across different industry sectors such as finance, chemistry, energy, and distribution.
At booth A80 in Hall 5, Fujitsu will demonstrate its Digital Annealer computational architecture, which uses quantum-inspired digital circuits to more rapidly solve combinatorial problems. This revolutionary technology bridges the gap between classical computing architectures and quantum computers, providing practical yet impressive computing power that can be deployed in existing infrastructures.
The Digital Annealer architecture employs conventional semiconductor technology with flexible circuit configurations, which allow it to handle a broader range of problems than current quantum computing technology can manage. Unlike quantum computers, Fujitsu’s Digital Annealer operates at room temperature, without the need for complex, expensive cooling solutions to reach very low temperatures close to absolute zero (-273 degrees Celsius). Digital Annealer also fits in a conventional data center rack, as opposed to quantum computers which require considerable amounts of costly underlying infrastructure in order to function at all. This makes the Digital Annealer ideal for combinatorial problem-solving scenarios with real-world applications, such as comparing molecular similarities for the development of new drugs, or for the optimization of investment portfolios.
At Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, Fujitsu will also showcase the breadth of its mobile-enabling and digital transformation technologies and outline how the company is working with customers and partners on digital co-creation projects. The company will present insightful demonstrations and customer case studies under the theme of Human Centric Innovation – Digital Co-creation. These will showcase how Fujitsu is applying advanced technologies to deliver value to its customers across a range of industries, including automotive, manufacturing and transport.
