Episode 2: Quantum Computing and the Pharmaceutical Industry
In this episode, we'll look at how quantum computing can benefit the pharmaceutical industry.
The research and development of new pharmaceutical drugs includes many optimization steps. Will the drug molecule have the desired mechanism of action? How safe and soluble is the molecule? What is the right dosage?
Quantum computers can predict, simulate and optimize the properties of potential drug molecules better than classical computers. Much of this optimization currently takes place through brute-force trial and error.
Join VTT's leading quantum experts as they explore how quantum computing can speed up the R&D process in pharma, reduce the costs and create new opportunities for pharmaceutical companies.
Episode 1: Introduction to Quantum Computing
In this episode, you'll get a crash course on quantum computers.
Quantum computers can speed up solving certain problems, and in the most interesting cases, the speedup will be mind-boggling. But quantum computing is not just about speed: it's a fundamentally new way of harnessing nature to do computation.
Join host Dr. Deborah Berebichez, Lead Scientist in Quantum Computing at VTT as she explores how quantum computing is going to solve important and complex problems – and impact existing businesses while creating new ones.
Preparing for quantum today will define the business advantage of the future. At VTT we support our customers with:
