Quantum Computing has the potential to deliver a major leap forward in computation.
It may revolutionize whole fields and solve major problems humans face right now — be it climate change, pandemics, energy grids, drug development, financial modeling or cyber security.
Aqarios helps companies like BASF, BMW, E.ON, SAP and Siemens to cross this next technological frontier.
AqOPT enables our customers to solve complex optimization problems using quantum computing. We currently see quantum annealing as the most promising technology for an early quantum advantage. AqOPT offers the following components for this purpose:
The heart of AqOPT is our specially designed solver QAGA Plus , which is one of the world's best solvers for quantum annealing.
Go live of the MVP is scheduled for October 2022.

For every optimization problem, there are 4 considerations to be made.
Challenge — Find optimal timetables for shifts, efficient routes of roboter arms, or optimized portfolios of stocks, you name it.
Analysis — Analyze the problem at hand, identify precise formulations, find typical approximations for your problem, and assess the problem's inherent complexity.
Solution — Develop a software solution: Generate a suitable problem transformation, implement approximative methods and AI-based estimates to verify the verdicts in the analysis phase, and choose the best suited hybrid algorithm.
Hardware — Finally, put the software on the world's leading (quantum) computing hardware to generate the best solutions whenever you have a new instance of your optimization problem.
The experts of the team program real QCs / NISQ devices and in particular have experience with IBM, Rigetti, Fujitsu and D-Wave.
We are identifying suitable use cases, designing intelligent algorithms, and writing high quality software to make real-world challenges accessible to quantum computers.
Aqarios combines their experts' experience on optimization problems with powerful software tools that allow for dynamic analysis and adjustments of the search process.
