How simulations will transform engineering in 2032

Jukka Knuutinen, Juha Riippi, Dr. Alexandre Halbach

Computer-aided engineering (CAE) has come a long way. With the increased interest and development in cloud scaling, the speed and accuracy of these simulations will see a drastic improvement. Finally, as quantum computers are lurking behind the corner, the R&D processes and CAE as we know them will forever be transformed. This article will first rewind the clock to see where we came from to eventually give you a glimpse of what is yet to come. Better hold on to your seats — this might get rowdy.

Quantum advantage or quantum supremacy - what is the difference?

Jukka Knuutinen, Dr. Valtteri Lahtinen

Quantum advantage and quantum supremacy are words often thrown around, but what exactly do they mean, and what is the difference between them? This article aims to shed light on these questions and straighten out some of the misconceptions. At the least, we are stating our policy for the usage of these terms in previous and upcoming blog articles and other communications.
