(Digismak.com) Eddie Corp, a tech journalist recently reported on the survey conducted with Quanvia, a company with Latin American talent that develops artificial intelligence solutions using quantum computing, Quantavia conducted the survey to identify the expectations generated in its application. IQT-News summarizes below.
Quanvia obtained responses from companies from more than 10 countries in Latin America.
With the participation of JP Morgan, BBVA and Walmart, among other renowned companies, it was recorded that almost half of the respondents intend to implement this technology in their business and more than 80% of them plan to make their first investment within the next 2 years.
“These numbers reflect that the interest is tangible, which is consistent with the recent context in investments and concrete progress in this matter. Our desire to democratize is key to showing companies and people that there are real advantages linked to quantum technologies”, explains Javier Mancilla, Managing Partner of Quanvia.
According to the figures released by the survey, only 10% had a solid foundation in quantum matters. “One of the fundamental instruments to be able to generate awareness regarding quantum computing and its uses in the Latin American region is to understand that training, qualification and transfer of knowledge are essential prior to any type of investment or sale of service.
Despite the lack of understanding on the part of entrepreneurs, the bet they intend to make on this technology is enormous, given that 55% intend to define a budget greater than USD 3,000 per month. Although within the quantum universe they are not impressive figures, from Quanvia they consider that they are encouraging amounts, taking into account emerging markets such as Latin America.
Among those surveyed, 36% believe that it will be in the finance area where it will have the most impact, followed by the medicine and retail industries.
