The project "PlanQK: Platform and Ecosystem for Quantum-Enhanced Artificial Intelligence" combines artificial intelligence and quantum computing. The project goal is to create a platform for innovative quantum-enhanced AI applications and to make it available to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The PlanQK project has a total volume of more than 19 million euros with 11 million euros directly funded through the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy as part of the “KI Innovationswettbewerb”. The University of Stuttgart has a prominent role in the project with Prof. Frank Leymann (Institute for Architecture of Application Systems) and Prof. Stefanie Barz (Institute for Functional Matter and Quantum Technologies) being leading partners in the interdisciplinary consortium of academia and industry.
