IonQ to Present EV Research Results, Latest Quantum System Availability for Hyundai Motor Company and Airbus at Q2B 2022
IonQ executives to lead sessions on quantum system testing with Hyundai Motor Company and Accenture
Session will also include updates on the availability of IonQ’s Forte system, advancements in quantum machine learning
COLLEGE PARK, MD - December 6, 2022 - IonQ (NYSE: IONQ), an industry leader in quantum computing, today announced that its scientific leadership team will be presenting results from its advanced battery chemistry model project with Hyundai Motor Company at the Q2B conference in Santa Clara, CA, December 6-8, 2022. The results showcase the advantages of quantum computing in studying lithium compounds involved in next-generation electric vehicle battery chemical reactions, and how quantum is an effective tool for chemistry simulation. The full research paper is available to view on arXiv at https://arxiv.org/abs/2212.02482. Additionally, IonQ will be providing an update on its separate machine learning and image recognition project with Hyundai Motor Company, as well as announcing IonQ Forte’s availability for Hyundai Motor Company and Airbus.
On Wednesday, December 7, Senior Staff Scientist Sonika Johri and Technical Director of Partnerships, Nicole Barberis, will be presenting a session, titled: “Quantum Computing for the Future Automotive Industry: Image Recognition and Battery Chemistry with IonQ.” The two will provide an overview of IonQ’s ongoing technology and quantum algorithm innovations with Hyundai in the areas of lithium batteries and computer vision, before diving into the application advances and hardware results that illustrate the anticipated quantum advantage in these areas. These forward-thinking investments are key parts of Hyundai’s strategy to build mobility solutions for a future which is smart and sustainable.
At the conference, IonQ is also announcing the availability of IonQ Forte for Hyundai and Airbus, where the system will see use in Hyundai’s chemistry research and machine learning work, as well as in Airbus’ cargo loading optimization project announced this fall. IonQ Forte features 32 all-to-all connected perfect qubits and enables quantum algorithms to be tested at much larger scales, paving the way for more realistic modeling of real-world quantum applications in multiple industries. With all-to-all connectivity between qubits, quantum application developers can write more efficient quantum programs.

In a separate session on Tuesday, December 6, IonQ Senior Quantum Applications Researcher Luning Zhao and Accenture Global Quantum Computing Lead Carl Dukatz will provide an update on the work between IonQ and Accenture to accelerate quantum computing business experimentation in organizations globally and across industries. The two speakers will highlight quantum’s value in addressing PFAS pollution around the globe, offering potential new solutions for environmental remediation through quantum simulation of molecular bonds.
The sessions follow closely on the heels of IonQ’s presentations at Quantum World Congress, another major industry event, where co-founder and Chief Scientist Chris Monroe presented two sessions on the role of quantum for the U.S. government and its importance to America’s national security and global technology leadership. IonQ also recently announced a $13.4 million contract with the U.S. Air Force Research Lab to provide them with access to trapped ion systems for quantum computing hardware research and development.
