Quantum computing in industry

Quantum computing promises to solve seemingly intractable problems. In the medium term, both optimization and chemistry will likely be the only impactful applications for this novel technology. In this talk, an overview of quantum computing in industry with a focus on optimization is presented. It is argued that quantum optimization machines are still superseded by classical approaches on CMOS for the foreseeable future. However, problem modeling as well as physics-inspired algorithms present new, potentially transformative ways to solve hard combinatorial optimization problem across industries. This is illustrated with a new hybrid algorithm for combinatorial optimization problems.references
