Fujitsu’s Digital Annealer Powered by Quantum-Inspired Technology
(Fujitsu) The second generation Fujitsu Digital Annealer is now enabling organizations to make a rapid and affordable leap to solve complex combinatorial optimization problems – enabling breakthroughs in areas such as optimizing manufacturing processes, minimizing traffic congestion and enabling financial services providers to align investment portfolios against ever-changing risk landscapes. Powered by pioneering quantum-inspired technology, the Fujitsu Digital Annealer delivers unprecedented disruptive new solutions including prioritizing rollout locations for next-generation mobile networks to maximize customer uptake, drug discovery, and molecular simulations.
Dr. Joseph Reger, Fujitsu Fellow and Chief Technology Officer CE & EMEIA at Fujitsu, comments: “Our ultimate aim is to help customers and society as a whole to solve ever-larger and more complex challenges. As Moore’s Law seems to slow down, there’s a compute deficit which is threatening to slow down the pace of progress. Fujitsu is addressing that with the Digital Annealer, which enables an entirely different approach to finding solutions, inspired by quantum computing’s simultaneous processing capabilities. The key difference to traditional computing is that the Digital Annealer can tackle complex combinatorial problems by comparing thousands of possible results at the same time, rather than in sequence.”
