Accenture Labs Awarded Patent for Quantum Machine Learning Module
(SearchItChannel) Accenture Labs, the IT services firm’s R&D arm, is continuing its push into quantum computing, with a focus on identifying appropriate applications for this emerging technology.
Accenture said in July 2019 that it was awarded a patent for a “quantum computing machine learning module.” The module trains AI models to determine which computational tasks should be handled via quantum computing, as opposed to classical computing methods. The module then routes a computational task to the appropriate computing resource.
“The patent is really about understanding and creating systems that allow us to deal with the computational diversity that is available today,” said Carl Dukatz, senior manager of Accenture Labs systems and platforms R&D.
