Think Quantum – How the new quantum computers are already changing our world
In Beijing, the world capital of smog and traffic jams, there will soon be perfect traffic when the city switches to self-driving cars under the control of a quantum computer. The flagship in quantum computing uses data analysis to predict where traffic problems could occur in the next few minutes and prevents these by assigning an exact route and speed for every single vehicle on the streets. The current champion of the world‘s supercomputers would need 40 seconds for this calculation – this quantum computer can do it in 5-10.
This showcase revealed the status of the project and the next steps towards the vision of traffic paradise Beijing.
