Quantum Computers Could Help Tackle Climate Change Challenges
(TechHQ) In the fight against climate change, a plethora of new technologies will be required to not only transform conventional approaches that are contributing to world carbon emission but also birth a new generation of green technologies. This article contends that quantum computers hold the key in realizing green solutions that can accelerate the goal of carbon neutrality by 2050.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) stated by 2025, quantum computing “will have outgrown its infancy,” and we’ll see a fist generation of commercially available quantum-inspired devices to “tackle meaningful, real-world problems.”
Companies across industries are looking towards the future-forward tech to solve the challenges of today and tomorrow. Though quantum computers are not readily available or commercialized yet, it’s just a matter of time before an explosion of use cases are seen.
Aerospace giant Airbus has been advocating for the aviation industry to explore new fields such as AI and quantum computers to create a climate-neutral industry.
German automaker Volkswagen has been testing a quantum-inspired navigation app that will be baked into its vehicles within the next few years to prevent road congestion by ensuring the most efficient route is in use.
