Quantum Brilliance and Quantum-South Partner on Logistics Optimization

Canberra, Australia and Montevideo, Uruguay, April 19, 2021 — Quantum Brilliance and Quantum-South today announced a partnership to jointly develop and market complementary products and technology in shipping logistics optimization. The companies will be performing proof-of-concept implementations with air and marine cargo companies to showcase the potential of quantum computing to solve highly complex logistics problems beyond the scope of today’s classical computers. The two firms are also working with the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre and the Quantum Supercomputing Innovation Hub to demonstrate quantum utility through co-development projects with Australian companies as part of the Quantum Pioneer Program.

Quantum Brilliance is a venture-backed Australian quantum computing startup from The Australian National University. Quantum Brilliance harnesses synthetic diamonds to build quantum accelerators in smaller, more mobile form factors that do not require near absolute zero temperature or complex laser systems to operate as mainframe quantum computers do. Quantum Brilliance is one of only a few companies worldwide able to deliver market-ready quantum computing systems for customers to operate on-site.

Quantum-South is a University of Montevideo spin-off in Uruguay and is one of the first quantum start-ups in Latin America, working with complex optimization problems for cargo in airlines and ships leveraging quantum computing software. Quantum-South’s goal is to achieve better results than conventional classical computer solutions available today and help companies improve revenues and reduce costs. Quantum-South also works in solving financial sector problems where quantum computing could provide better solutions.

Quantum-South will work with vehicle loading optimization software by utilizing Quantum-Brilliance’s unique room temperature diamond qubit architecture. A frequent problem amongst various transportation companies is determining the optimal loading strategy for packing their merchandise in different vehicles, such as ships, aircraft, trains or trucks. Quantum-South has been developing quantum algorithms to determine the optimal configuration of maximizing total weight or profit in the loading of cargo vehicles subject to appropriate constraints. In this project, Quantum-South will implement these solutions on the Quantum Brilliance Quantum Emulator platform which represents the capabilities of current and future Quantum Brilliance devices.

“We look forward to working closely with Quantum-South in developing joint solutions and showing the cargo industry how it can benefit from quantum optimization,” said Quantum Brilliance CEO Andrew Horsley, Ph.D. “We believe the innovative characteristics of our quantum hardware combined with Quantum-South’s capabilities and commercial insight will be a robust match in providing quantum utility for logistics.”
