Moscow-Tokyo – Nissan and the Quantum Machine Learning
Project of the Russian Quantum Center (RQC) have announced the launch of a
joint scientific and technological project in the field of quantum computing
for chemical compound modeling solutions. In the context of partnership,
Project is going to create new methods of quantum systems modeling and to test
them with the use of existing quantum processors. This project is one of the
first commercial projects in the field of quantum computing in Russia. The
amount and terms of the contract are not disclosed by the parties.

Modeling of
complex systems such as materials, batteries, and medicines is extremely
difficult for existing computers. The next generation of computing devices,
which are quantum computers, will be able to solve such problems more
efficiently. As a result, the business will be able to find practical solutions
such as modeling of new materials, production of devices of a new class from
such materials, and selection of optimal characteristics or reactions inside
these materials, which are necessary for increasing the subsequent efficiency.
One of the real challenges for the industry and business is the modeling of
chemical compounds used in the batteries manufacturing process.

“As part of
the project, we are developing quantum chemistry methods using machine learning
and quantum optimization. We plan to integrate the developed methods into the
material design system, which is used today in Nissan. This will allow Nissan
to unlock the huge potential of quantum computing for its tasks, and in the
future, to achieve technological leadership,” said Alexey Fedorov, Head of the Group Quantum Information Technologies RQC,
Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics.

“Quantum
technologies are promising for solving many industrial challenges. The
materials that can be created with quantum chemistry will significantly
increase the power and capacity of batteries. As a result, we will get the
opportunity to create highly efficient and environmentally-friendly transport,
as well as new solutions. The future is behind these technologies and, together
with our partner, Russian Quantum Center, we are striving to become a pioneer
in this industry,” said Shigeo
Ibuka, Head of Nissan R&D center in Russia, Ph.D. in Physics.

In the long term,
the use of quantum technologies will significantly reduce the time for the
development of new materials, as well as predict their compliance with the
requirements of industry and business. The RQC team will conduct research using
both existing quantum computers and their own-developed quantum-inspired
algorithms.

About
Russian Quantum Center (RQC)

The Russian
Quantum Center (RQC) is a non-governmental organization specializing in
fundamental research in the field of quantum physics and the development of
devices and technologies based on quantum effects. The Center was founded in
December 2010 and became one of the first residents of the Skolkovo Innovation
Center. RQC is one of the authors of the roadmap for the development of quantum
technologies in Russia until 2024. 

At the moment,
RQC has more than 150 employees, 14 laboratories, and 7 spin-offs aimed at the
commercialization of the developments. In 2017, RQC developed the world’s first
quantum blockchain. RQC technologies are being actively introduced into
government and business structures around the world.

RQC’s
Quantum Machine Learning Project

RQC’s Quantum Machine Learning Project is engaged in research and business-oriented projects in the field of quantum computing. The work is carried out in several directions: development of the strategy of quantum computing application and development of the QBoard quantum computing cloud platform, SimCIM simulator based on quantum-inspired algorithms, and other solutions. Some software products are already available for commercial use.
