Fujitsu Thailand Partners with Quantum Technology Foundation Thailand
(BangkokPost) The local unit of Japanese ICT giant Fujitsu has partnered with Quantum Technology Foundation Thailand (QTFT), the country’s first quantum tech startup, to help organisations tackle their business problems by capitalising on Fujitsu’s quantum-inspired technology Digital Annealer.
According to Fujitsu, Digital Annealer is the world’s first quantum-inspired digital technology architecture, which can deliver real-time optimisation calculations at speed with precision. As a result, complex large-scale combinatorial problems can be solved in seconds.
“For the first time in Thailand, companies will be able to leverage computing technology specifically designed for solving combinatorial optimisation problems to find the optimal solution among various combinations of factors and variables in the real world by using minimum resources such as time, people and costs,” said Toshiro Miura, managing director of Fujitsu Thailand.
With the specialised software power of QTFT and Fujitsu’s Digital Annealer, the two parties will help organisations in various industries solve their business problems more effectively and boost the overall productivity and competitiveness of the country’s industries, he said.
“This cooperation can be considered as a starting point and foundation that allows Thailand’s businesses to smoothly transition to the quantum era in the future,” said Kanokkamon Laohaburanakit, Fujitsu Thailand’s head of sales.
