CSIRO is conducting research to showcase the advantages and applications of quantum annealing for materials modelling and process optimisation, including the data-constrained modelling, in collaboration with global leaders in quantum-annealing quantum computers. The research paves the way for the development of a quantum-computing-based materials modelling technology platform that will position CSIRO and the collaborators as leading global providers of the technology to a broad range of industries in the manufacturing, minerals and other sectors.‚Äč
