Simulating nature with the new Microsoft Quantum Development Kit chemistry library

In this video, the Microsoft Quantum Team describes how Quantum computers have the potential to solve the world’s hardest computational problems and alter the economic, industrial, academic, and societal landscape. In just hours or days, a quantum computer can solve complex problems that would otherwise take billions of years to solve. “To unlock these potential applications, the Microsoft Quantum Development Kit includes a new chemistry library that allows chemists to simulate molecular interactions and explore quantum algorithms for real-world applications in the chemistry domain.”

Big Data: A New Challenge for Chemistry & Life Sciences

“As for chemistry and life sciences, we see it as a vibrant and dynamic field that’s constantly evolving — from using nanotechnology and new materials to deliver drugs to unraveling the mysteries of how cells work. We definitely have our eye on those new technologies that are revolutionizing the field such as next generation sequencing (NGS). NGS allows for the analysis of genetic material with unprecedented speed and efficiency and is well suited for HPC.”
