Commercialising Quantum and AI

Driving innovation between the UK and Japan

Technology has the power to help us solve the world’s most difficult problems and to transform society for the better. Quantum computing and Artificial Intelligence are central to realising the transformative nature of technology to bring real tangible benefits to organisations and society as a whole.

Quantum computing and AI technologies are no longer the future. They can deliver the power to transform your organisation today:

  • Rapidly solving complex optimisation problems
  • Driving innovation between the UK and Japan
  • Contributing to the UK becoming a Science Superpower
  • Predicting tsunamis and flood risk
  • Accelerating drug discovery
  • Innovating to make space sustainable
  • Making a difference today


Fujitsu is committed to fostering innovation in Quantum and AI and commercialising these exciting emerging technologies. We are drawing from our global expertise and reach in Japan and around the world to create a new model of innovation to realise Global Britain’s scientific super power potential and ensure the UK is the world’s first quantum ready economy.

Both in Japan and the UK, we are working to tackle shared challenges and goals which can only be achieved through international collaboration and seeking to realise the transformative benefits that Quantum and AI will bring across the delivery of public services, the optimisation of business and beyond.



Artificial Intelligence

Fujitsu’s AI helps organisations to act, innovate and go beyond their current capabilities while also reducing costs. Now, more than ever, organisations are encountering unparalleled levels of complexity, whether that’s shock pandemics, sprawling globalised supply chains, rising customer expectations or ever-increasing digital demands. To succeed and grow in this challenging world, businesses must adapt at speed and find new ways of working to generate ongoing business value.

Our human-centric approach to AI is solutions first and technology second. Instead of finding problems to solve with specific technology, we start by identifying the real, human and business challenges your organisation faces.

Quantum Computing

Fujitsu’s Quantum-Inspired Optimisation Services (QIOS), powered by the Digital Annealer platform, are helping organisations to address the extreme complexity of modern business and societal challenges.

Digital Annealer deploys quantum-inspired techniques to resolve large-scale complex combinatorial optimization problems in near to real-time. Combinatorial optimization enables organisations to find the best arrangement of options from many possible arrangements.

Making space sustainable with quantum-inspired computing

There are currently approximately 160 million objects in orbit – mainly debris – which could collide with satellites vital to services we use every day.

To tackle this challenge, Fujitsu is working with Astroscale UK, University of Glasgow and AWS to successfully combine quantum-inspired computing and Artificial Intelligence to transform space debris removal.

Predicting tsunamis and flood risks with AI and Fugaku

In 2011, the Great East Japan Earthquake caused enormous damage to Japan’s coastal region due to the huge tsunami which flooded an estimated area of approximately 217 square miles. 

Fujitsu is using Fugaku, the world’s most powerful supercomputer to train highly accurate AI models to predict detailed flood risks to within 3 meters spatial resolution.
