Securing Supply Chains with Quantum Computing

Sandia Labs News, February 14, 2023

Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories developed a new framework for programming quantum computers that could solve massive optimization problems and help secure the global supply chain. With the new framework, called FALQON (Feedback-based Algorithm for Quantum Optimization), optimization is performed by a quantum computer rather than a classical computer. The idea is that the quantum computer will adapt its structure repeatedly as it completes a calculation. Said Sandia's Alicia Magann, "After I run the first layer of the algorithm, I measure the qubits and get some information from them. I feed that information back to my algorithm and use that to define the second layer. I then run the second layer, measure the qubits again, feed that information back for the third layer, and so on and so forth." Currently, the framework can be tested only on problems that can be solved by classical computers.
