SandboxAK has partnered with NVIDIA to utilize quantum simulation platforms in various scientific fields. The partnership aims to apply artificial intelligence and simulation technologies to support drug discovery, battery design, green energy, and other scientific fields. The announcement was made from Palo Alto, California, and SandboxAK President Eric Schmidt expressed his belief that simulation is a very promising future technology application.
Schmidt highlighted the role of rapid advances in graphics processing unit hardware and quantum information science in enabling the use of artificial intelligence for specialized applications. Jack Hidari, CEO of SandboxAK, emphasized the impact of simulation on the use of GPUs, stating that it will provide insight into the physical world beyond the capabilities of extractive or generative artificial intelligence.
The partnership between SandboxAK and NVIDIA aims to use quantum platforms to simulate chemical reactions and predict scientific developments in modern chemistry, biology, and materials science. SandboxAK will offer technical advice to NVIDIA on its tensor network offerings, cuTENSOR, cuTensorNet, Quantum Computing and CUDA libraries. These libraries are essential for modeling high-dimensional data and have applications in machine learning, data science, financial modeling, fluid dynamics, and quantum chemistry.
NVIDIA’s director of high-performance computing and quantum computing Tim Costa emphasized the need for powerful accelerated computing platforms in the advancement of quantum chemistry and molecular modeling. The collaboration with SandbokAK is expected to provide scientists with the tools they need to advance materials science.
