India & USA Top Respondents to Airbus Quantum Computing Challenge
(Zee.News.India) India and the US have emerged as the topmost respondents to Airbus’ quantum computing challenge designed to invite proposals for bringing flight physics into the quantum era. The Airbus quantum computing challenge is designed to seek answers to five distinct flight physics problems of aircraft climb optimisation, computational fluid dynamics, wingbox design optimisation, aircraft loading optimisation and quantum neural networks for solving partial differential equations.
Quantum technology research in Indian laboratories has recently received a boost with promised funding support from the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), as well as individual projects from the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).
A DST scheme called “Quantum Science and Technology” will fund research for the development of quantum computers, quantum communication and cryptography.
