Germany’s €19m PlanQK Developing & Implementing Vendor-Independent Platform and Ecosystem for Quantum AI
(EENewsEurope) Germany’s €19m PlanQK project is developing and implementing hardware-independent quantum AI algorithms.
The project is developing a vendor-independent platform and associated ecosystem for quantum AI. Users could then, for example, compile solutions for their company or commission them via the cloud or a quantum app store.
The PlanQK project (Platform and Ecosystem for Quantum-Assisted Artificial Intelligence) is funded by the German Federal Ministry of the Economy and now has 15 partners and 33 associated partners, including Siemens and Daimler.
The latest member, Deutsche Telekom (DT), is researching and testing potential use cases from the perspective of a network operator. This includes network security as well as data routing algorithms.
n the PlanQK project, DT’s Telekom Innovation Labs (T-Labs) provides some specific use cases from the field of telecommunications. These include the optimization of communication networks, Industry 4.0 applications or AI-clustering problems for particular applications.
