U.S. & India Rise to Top of Airbus Quantum Computing Challenge
India among top respondents to Airbus quantum computing challenge
Excerpts and salient points ~
+ [O]f the over 500 who have logged in online for the challenge till July, India and the US are in the top globally in submission of their expressions of interest.
Botter said the Airbus quantum computing challenge is designed to seek answers to five distinct flight physics problems of aircraft climb optimisation, computational fluid dynamics, wingbox design optimisation, aircraft loading optimisation and quantum neural networks for solving partial differential equations.
+ India and the US have emerged as the topmost respondents to Airbus’ quantum computing challenge designed to invite proposals for bringing flight physics into the quantum era, the French aircraft major’s head of central research and technology Thierry Botter said.
+ Quantum technology research in Indian laboratories has recently received a boost with promised funding support from the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), as well as individual projects from the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).
