The main difficulty of simulating molecules is the size of the configuration space, growing exponentially with the number of electrons. This requires to consider many approximations, tampering with the accuracy of the result. Quantum algorithms already exist for this purpose, but often require a high number of physical qubits.
Although the transition of the existing infrastructure from carbon-based sources to cleaner alternatives would be ideal in this regard, such a change requires considerable modifications to the current energy and productions frameworks, especially in hard-to-abate sectors such as heavy industries (cement, steel or chemicals), and many of the proposed technologies are not yet sufficiently developed to facilitate large-scale industrial implementation.
In the context of the Blaise Pascal [re]Generative Quantum Challenge, from which Sigma Reply teams ranked among the 10 finalists, we proposed a solution to find an optimal placement of sensors within a water distribution network to efficiently detect leaks. Our approach leverages the unique properties of quantum mechanics, especially neutral atoms, for the maintenance and repair of urban infrastructures.
