The quantum simulation of chemical processes could help to solve many problems in chemistry in the future and thus, for example, provide new impetus for materials science, medicine and industrial chemistry. In the experiment carried out at the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the scientists led by Cornelius Hempel and Thomas Monz are exploring a promising pathway for modelling chemical bonds and reactions using quantum computers.

“Even the largest supercomputers are struggling to model accurately anything but the most basic chemistry. Quantum computers simulating nature, however, unlock a whole new way of understanding matter. They will provide us with a new tool to solve problems in materials science, medicine and industrial chemistry using simulations”, says Cornelius Hempel. With quantum computing still in its infancy, it remains unclear exactly what problems these devices will be most effective at solving, but most experts agree that quantum chemistry is going to be one of the first ‘killer apps’ of this emerging technology.

How Austria Shapes Its Future with AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) is certainly the most powerful new technology available today. This is probably the reason why the underlying discussion is frequently driven by fear. Hollywood has also contributed to this. Half-human, half-machine mutants resembling Frankenstein and Terminator are the spectres unleased by AI. However, as is often the case, Hollywood’s fantasy has little to do with reality.
