Volkswagen’s Entangled Quantum State

Filed under: Uncategorized — rrtucci @ 5:26 am

Long, long ago (May 2013), in a galaxy far away (Silicon Valley), Google together with NASA bought a DWave quantum computer.

And then, just 7 months ago (Mar 2017), Volkswagen proudly announced that it was using a Dwaver quantum computer for traffic flow optimization in Beijing.

But yesterday, Volkswagen put out the following press release

announcing a grand partnership between Volkswagen and Google’s quantum computer group.

Some excerpts from yesterday’s Volkswagen press release: (Dwave was not mentioned directly.)

Neven: Google already has a high-performance quantum computer and the software it takes to run it.

Hofmann: One key focal point of our partnership will be optimizing traffic with the help of quantum computing. In this work, we will draw on the findings of our first research project with 10,000 taxis in China’s capital, Beijing.

Hmm, has Google swiped their friend’s biggest client?
