Who entered / participated
The challenge was open to Quantum Computing experts and enthusiasts (post-graduate students, PhDs, academics, researchers, start-ups, or professionals in the field).
Who reviewed the submitted proposals?
Airbus experts from engineering and flight physics teamed up with leading academic and industry experts in Quantum Computing to support with the evaluation of submitted proposals. Find out more about the academic and industry representatives here.
What do the winners receive?
Winners will be offered unique opportunities for hardware access (scheduled for 2020 and after), and to work collaboratively with our industry experts from the flight physics sector.
Throughout the competition we interacted with the QC Community, answering questions and clarifying the problem.
The exact nature of the prize for each of the five problem statements may vary.
The potential benefits gained as an outcome for selected solutions include access to Airbus and industry experts for the evolution of the proposals, or alternative forms of support to develop the proposals further.
Who owns the idea?
Participants are welcome to publish their solutions in scientific journals or on online platforms. However, the Challenge organisers ask that those publications be made after the submission period concludes.
The intellectual property of the submission remains with the individual or team who submits the solution. Specific conditions related to the use of the entry are detailed in the Terms and Conditions available here. Participation in the AQCC is subject to the acceptance of and adherence to these terms and conditions.
