TOKYO, Nov 8, 2022 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu today announced the development of quantum/HPC hybrid computing technology to optimize workload selection for customers.

Key Points: 
  • TOKYO, Nov 8, 2022 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu today announced the development of quantum/HPC hybrid computing technology to optimize workload selection for customers.
  • Crucially, the technology allows users without specialized knowledge to use quantum simulators and HPC technology to provide effective solutions to real-world problems.
  • Fujitsu is currently working to develop a computing workload broker--a software technology that uses AI to automatically select the appropriate resources from advanced computing technologies and solutions, including large-scale cloud-based HPC, quantum computing, Digital Annealer, as well as quantum simulators to solve customers' complex problems.
  • In this way, the computing workload broker will enable high-speed calculations and solutions according to customers' specific needs.
