Next Generation Computing

Digitalization is bringing with it a flood of data that we will soon no longer be able to handle efficiently with today's computer systems. Neuromorphic computing, trusted computing and quantum computing are the three main pillars on which a future is being built. It is time for a new hybrid computing generation: next generation computing (NGC). Fraunhofer brought the first quantum computer to Germany in November. Now it is starting operation. We are in the process of researching which problems we will solve better with quantum computers in the future and which will be better solved with other architectures.
