Who we are

Quantum Computing

Quantum Computing is a quickly evolving, groundbreaking technology with huge promise in tackling hard to solve or impossible to solve problems we encounter today. In the chemical industry in particular, this cutting-edge approach to computing technology will make the search for new products and applications even more efficient and more accurate. Additionally, we see it will enable large scale simulations of different scenarios in highly complex environments. 

Next Generation Computing

For scientific and business work, more and more computing power is needed to answer increasingly complex questions. Classical digital approaches are gradually reaching their limits. New ways must be found to achieve the necessary computing power to handle huge volumes of data, to use artificial intelligence or to resolve answers more accurately while reducing the time to solution. That is why BASF invests into next generation computing technologies. The experts at BASF have been working with high-performance computing methods for years gaining extensive experience in digital simulation and modelling.
