Volkswagen, Google collaborate on quantum computing applications
Volkswagen Group and Google have announced extensive research cooperation in the field of quantum computing at the "Web Summit 2017" (Lisbon) technology conference. In the future, both companies will jointly test the use of quantum computers. They want to expand their specialist knowledge and carry out application-oriented research.

Specifically, the VW specialists want to develop techniques and algorithms to reduce driving time within the scope of the thematic field of traffic optimization and integrate further variable variables. These include urban traffic guidance systems, available electric charging stations or free parking spaces.

In a further project, the specialists want to use an algorithm to simulate and optimize the material structure of high-performance electric vehicle batteries and other materials. The Volkswagen Group's research and development department expects this to provide new insights for vehicle construction and battery research.

In addition, VW wants to use the potential of the Google quantum computer to work with new methods of machine learning on artificial intelligence (AI). The application focus is on autonomous driving.
