Fujitsu used annealer to redesign car manufacturer’s painting process

Fujitsu knows that quantum is the way to go, but at the moment they can’t do it at a mass scale. So they use a Digital Annealer which is not actually quantum but ‘quantum like’. It gives the results that are 1 million times faster than any processor on the market at the moment.

They used it in finance and manufacturing. For example, a Fujitsu customer is a global car manufacturer that can paint a thousand cars a day at the maximum capacity of this line. Fujitsu puts how the robots spray though its Annealer formulas, and two or three seconds later the result said how to get 30% more capacity. (Silicon.co.uk)
