Discuss approaches and identify commonalities: Quantum computing for computational engineering.
What is the future of quantum computing for computational engineering? On November 29, a panel discussion organized by JARA CSD and the Profile Area Modeling & Simulation Sciences was held in Aachen on this very topic. Experts from FZJ and RWTH Aachen University wanted to know: What can quantum computing already do for computational engineering today? What development is expected for the future? How can future collaboration look so that the two communities benefit from each other?
Frank Wilhelm-Mauch and Tommaso Calarco, who are experts on quantum computing and both intensively involved in quantum technology, discussed the future of quantum computing in an exchange with the other guests and the audience. Also important for a holistic view of the topic was the application-specific perspective of Robert Spatschek and Andreas Lintermann. Together, they were able to discuss the impact of quantum computing for computational engineering with Julia Kowalski and Wolfgang Schröder. Thus, the guests discussed what the respective communities need from each other to grow and how computational engineering can help shape the development of quantum computing. In addition to the lively discussion among the guests, audience members also provided input, enabling an exchange to discuss approaches and identify commonalities.
