Hyundai announced in a recent press release that it has expanded its partnership with IonQ, a UA-based company that specializes in quantum computing technology. Accordion to Hyundai, it is developing a new project designed to apply quantum machine learning to image classification and 3D object detection for future mobility.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What will the quantum machine learning result in?

    Accordion to Hyundai, it is developing a new project designed to apply quantum machine learning to image classification and 3D object detection for future mobility.
  • How many road signs can IonQ's quantum computer detect?

    At the moment, IonQ's quantum computing system can detect 43 road signs.
  • In January, both companies teamed up to develop lithium batteries for EVs using quantum computers to improve the battery’s performance, cost, and safety.

    Hyundai said that image classification and 3D object detection are vital components of developing next-gen car technologies, especially in the areas of autonomous mobility. With IonQ, Hyundai looks to improve computational functionality by using more efficient machine learning on quantum computers as these systems can process larger data faster and more accurately than compared to more conventional computing systems.

    As an example, these quantum computers can help an autonomous vehicle read road signs. At the moment, IonQ’s superior computing systems can classify 43 types of road signs.

    Hyundai and IonQ will soon apply the abovementioned learning data to the carmaker’s test environment and simulate various real-world scenarios.

    The expanded partnership between Hyundai and IonQ will see the development of quantum techniques for the broad task of 3D object detection, extending their current work on recognizing road signs to include other objects like pedestrians or cyclists.

    Running object recognition tasks on IonQ’s latest quantum computer, IonQ Aria, should enable more efficient processing with lower costs, leading to the development of safer, more intelligent mobilities in the future.

    “We are excited to expand our existing relationship with Hyundai Motor to focus on another key aspect of next-generation mobility. From partnering on battery research for electric vehicles to image classification and object detection research for automated driving, we expect to see quantum computers become an even more integral part in developing novel transportation solutions,” said IonQ President and CEO Peter Chapman.
