More relevant recommendation engines, better AI-generated content, optimized IT infrastructure — these are just a few of the opportunities that AI and quantum techniques have the potential to unlock for the IT & Telecommunications industries.
Wireless Transceiver Location Optimization
As 5G is deployed across the country, many remote and rural areas still lack basic broadband connectivity, creating a digital divide. Deploying wireless transceivers in these areas can be prohibitively expensive for ISPs, as the low utilization is unlikely to deliver a return on the investment costs of laying fiber and building infrastructure in remote locations. As the government steps in and subsidizes broadband and 5G expansion, telecommunications providers are challenged to find the minimum set of candidate transceiver sites that satisfy coverage goals. Doing so could save millions in infrastructure costs for planned and future wireless networks.
Zapata has several quantum, classical, or quantum-inspired approaches for solving combinatorial optimization problems like the wireless transceiver location problem. One of the most promising near-term approaches is Zapata’s Generator-Enhanced Optimization (GEO) strategy. GEO leverages quantum, classical, or quantum-inspired generative models, which are trained on the best solutions generated by classical optimization solvers to then generate previously unconsidered solutions. In similar optimization problems, GEO has been shown to generate solutions that match or outperform solutions generated by best-in-class classical solvers. When applied to wireless transceiver locations, GEO could be a valuable tool for expanding connectivity while minimizing infrastructure costs.LEARN MORE ABOUT GEO

Top 5 Food & Beverage Company
By optimizing their distribution network, an international beverage distributor could decrease fuel costs, shrink their carbon footprint, and raise revenue in a territory that already earned $5.5B annually. But with 700,000 vending machines to service, that’s easier said than done.
While this optimization problem had the potential for improvement with quantum-inspired generative models, we first had to ugrade their delivery operations using our Orquestra platform. By supporting faster, more efficient daily routing computations, our approach showed the company could start operations ~45 minutes earlier each day, saving time—and thus, money.
