Munich. With the event “Quantum Computing for Automotive Challenges”, the BMW Group is once again underscoring its leading role in the development of a quantum ecosystem. The BMW Group sees its role not only as one member of the quantum computing community but wants to actively network, collaborate and thereby bridge the gap between foundational and applied research.

 

"With the BMW Group Quantum Computing Challenge, we provided well-described industry reference problems representing the automotive industry. We are confident that this inspires the community to make industry application of quantum computing a reality." says Dr. Andre Luckow, Head of Innovations & Emerging Technologies at BMW Group IT.

 

At this year’s event, from 20. - 21. July 2022, hosted by the BMW Group, all 15 finalists of the Quantum Computing for Automotive Challenge will have the opportunity to present their ideas and solutions. All 15 finalists provided remarkable submissions to the challenge that deserve to be acknowledged by the larger ecosystem. The BMW Group and the main sponsor Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS) invite the global quantum computing community to join this event.

On Day 1, it is time to spotlight the results of last year's BMW Group Quantum Computing Challenge. A winning team was selected for each of the four specific industrial challenges identified as the most promising algorithm to address them. However, all finalists will have the chance to showcase their approach. The event will take place online.

On Day 2 keynote speeches by industry leaders from BMW Group and Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS) and panel discussions with members from large industry, academia, and quantum solution providers will mark the day. We welcome the panelists and invited guests at the BMW Group Startup Garage Office in Garching. The event will be broadcasted and streamed publicly.

 

Quantum Computing is one of the most promising future technologies in the automotive sector. It has enormous potential for material sciences, complex optimization, and AI problems. Information can be handled through laws of quantum mechanics in a quantum computer. Thereby computational operations on information stored in different registers can be performed at the same time.

 

In 2021, the BMW Group, in collaboration with Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), conducted a Crowd Innovation Initiative. We asked the global quantum computing community to develop innovative quantum algorithms for four specific industrial challenges and test them on real quantum computing hardware. More than 70 teams from all over the world participated. We identified and announced a winning team for each of the four challenges last year. This event serves to honor all 15 finalists of the challenge and to maintain the momentum of the vibrant community.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the automotive market in Germany. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures are already calculated on the basis of the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC values listed have been calculated back to the NEDC measurement procedure where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the definition of taxes and other vehicle-related levies that are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle- specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at bmw.de/wltp.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the following web site www.dat.de.
