Topic: Quantum Computing applied to Cargo Load OptimizationAbstract: Cargo traffic is fundamental for humanity. Billions of goods and tons cross the globe daily inside containers in vessels, aircrafts, trains and trucks. This constitutes a phenomenal billionaire business.Quantum South, founded in 2019 at Universidad de Montevideo, works with complex combinatorial optimization problems applied to Logistics and Finance, in particular to Cargo Load Optimization.The webinar will describe Quantum South journey, will review the cargo business focusing on air traffic, and will present Quantum South's approach to the problem.Bio:Martin is Co-Founder of Quantum-South. He is a Computer Science Engineer from the University of the Republic (Uruguay) with more than 30 years of international professional experience in the information technology, financial services, telecommunications, retail and dairy industry services sectors.
