A Quantum Computer is a processor whose function is based on the laws of quantum mechanics. This rapidly evolving technology will provide faster computing solutions to problems that only supercomputers can currently solve – or are considered unsolvable at the current state of the art.
Quantum mechanics is the basis of Quantum Computing and refers to the scientific laws that affect the smallest dimension of nature: molecules, atoms and subatomic particles. At this level new physical phenomena like superposition and entanglement arise and can be used for computing.
Qubit is the short form for Quantum bit. As the basis of Quantum Computing, Qubits can – in contrast to bits, which can only be represented by a zero or a one – be a zero, a one or both at the same time and form a so-called superposition.
Today, standard computers process information in bits, whereas quantum computers use Qubits and thus use the concept of superposition. This can lead to extremely fast processing so that calculations that are not possible with conventional computers become reality.
Coordinating routing trains in railway stations is a well-known and complex problem,
given the many conditions to be considered and the potential for sudden unforeseen
events. Using the QUBO model, Reply has demonstrated how to optimise railway traffic
management with the support of Quantum Computing, while also improving the end-user
Quantum Machine Learning exploits the benefits of two hot topics: Quantum Computing and Machine Learning. Although qML is still under development, it can already be used in hybrid approaches to accelerate computing and increase precision.
Reply has taken full advantage of the potential offered by
Quantum Computing, creating a Quantum-Inspired Algorithm for last-mile optimisation: Quadratic Unconstrained Binary Optimisation or
QUBO. The QUBO model has been designed to describe quadratic and binary variable combinatorial optimisation problems, and to be able to solve them efficiently through the quantum capability.
Reply has started a project in collaboration with the Investment Banking Division of one of Italy’s main players in the financial arena. The project focusses on risks and treasury liquidity management, from context-defining indicators to the optimization of collateral credit.
Quantum Cybersecurity is an emerging market and there are few specialist technology players capable of carrying out quantum-resilient data integration. Reply's added value comes from the quantum skills developed in recent years, and from our experiential approach and extensive experience in the fields of networking, security, and integration.
Machine Learning Reply, the Reply Group company specialized in Artificial Intelligence solutions, has won the Airbus Quantum Computing Challenge (AQCC), the competition launched by Airbus in 2019 to address some of the major challenges in the aerospace industry by leveraging the computational capabilities offered by Quantum Computing.
Quantum Computing is an evolving technology that will provide faster computational solutions to problems currently being handled only by supercomputers – or considered unsolvable with the present state of computer technology. With SONAR Trend Platform Reply is able to create an overview and mapping of relevant trending industries related to Quantum Computing.
A distributed and encrypted digital register, simultaneously accessible by the participants, which allows data recording, validation, updating and archiving. Data remains unalterable, unchangeable and non-replicable.
In a world of 0s and 1s, Quantum Computing truly is a quantum leap. Today, technology is becoming increasingly mature and the prospect of Quantum Computing being at the full disposal of businesses, so-called quantum supremacy seems to be getting closer. Read our sponsored content on

Quantum computing and
quantum computers probably represent the only practical, near-term solution to solving otherwise unsolvable problems, thanks to unprecedented computing power, speed, and memory capacity.
Capacity and computing speeds that are not available from traditional systems.
Even the most powerful computers have to work at the limits of their capacity to provide the computational performance required for machine learning and combinatorial optimisation. THIS IS WHY WE NEED QUANTUM!
Analysing how complex materials behave in industrial and transportation contexts represents a difficult challenge for traditional computing systems. THIS IS WHY WE NEED QUANTUM!
The massive number of potential combinations involved in molecule design cannot be calculated using traditional computing technologies. THIS IS WHY WE NEED QUANTUM!
IT security can be guaranteed with the aid of quantum technologies such as quantum key distribution. THIS IS WHY WE NEED QUANTUM!
