Your press review from Quantaneo

Atos, which works on quantum simulation, takes stock of some possible use cases in finance : payment networks, cryptocurrencies, and financial analysis among others.
 
Zapata is one of the few companies to position itself, far ahead of business demand, on application software using quantum computing. Pharmaceuticals and chemicals, logistics, finance, are its main markets. And the software they develop should be compatible with the main hardware platforms available, including Google, IBM, Rigetti, Honeywell, and IonQ.
The American company has just raised $21 million from various investors to finance its first developments. In this round are Pitango Ventures, BASF Venture Capital, Robert Bosch Venture Capital, Pillar VC, and The Engine.
 
The transportation world at large seems to be becoming aware of the potential of quantum computing. In a very comprehensive article, BMW explains some of the approaches studied, such as optimizing the path of a robot in a factory, which should choose between 10107 solutions: a problem that cannot be solved by conventional computers. Daimler, Ford, Airbus and Toyota are also working on the subject. At the end of 2018, Volkswagen explained that it was working on a travel forecasting model that would make it possible to adapt the various transportation offers (public and individual) to everyone's actual journeys.
