Jij Inc. and TOHO GAS Co., Ltd. today entered into a business alliance agreement for the practical application of quantum annealing.
From now on, we will identify areas that are deeply related to the "combinatorial optimization problem" and that can be expected to utilize quantum annealing in actual business situations at Toho Gas, and conduct joint demonstrations. In addition, we will deepen our knowledge of quantum annealing by actually deriving the optimal solution and quantitatively verifying the effect of the productivity improvement in order to put quantum annealing to practical use.
Jij will continue to work with partners to support social infrastructure to solve computationally difficult problems and update the society.
