Volkswagen’s Advanced Tech Team Working With AI, Quantum Computing, and More

Volkswagen’s Florian Neukart, Director of the Volkswagen Group Advanced Technologies team, has an ambitious mission: to discover the technologies and trends that will shape the future. Neukart is a computer scientist as well as an expert on artificial intelligence and quantum computers.

The technologies developed at the office can give an automotive group like Volkswagen a decisive edge for the future. Quantum computers are a good example of such technology. In battery research, Volkswagen uses quantum computers to simulate chemical processes at the molecular level. This could pave the way to even more powerful batteries – a crucial building block for the next generation of electric cars.
