Accenture Boosting Quantum-Computing Practice
(WallStreetJournal) Accenture PLC is boosting its quantum-computing consulting practice.
In April, the Dublin-based consulting firm was granted a patent for an algorithm that a business client could use to determine whether a quantum computer or a classical one would be best suited to solving a mathematical problem. About 100 Accenture employees around the world are involved in quantum-computing work.
“We see quantum computing as a technology that has potential applicability across the board for many of our customers,” said Carl Dukatz, principal director of Accenture’s quantum-computing practice.
