Relevance of Bologna’s Technopole in developing the European High-Performance Computing System
Quantum information processing provides efficient solutions for some of the most important scientific and practical problems (such as traffic flow and the optimisation of financial portfolios and work planning), as well as improvements compared with classical algorithms (database query, cryptography). The development of the Euro-Hpc High-Performance Computing Centre in Bologna requires research support explicitly aimed at outlining the operational effects of High-Performance computing systems, whether based on pre-exascale systems or quantum evolution systems. In particular, the possible relevant applications for European companies are investigated here, providing a starting point for research which may evolve with other European partners as part of large-scale European programmes.
The project explores three possible approaches, each of which uses quantum technologies for industrial applications:
- Hybrid Machine Learning
- Heuristic Algorithms
- Quantum Embeddings
These three possible approaches will be developed on the basis of their possible economic, industrial and financial applications.
