Roberto Desimone is currently on sabbatical from BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, where he manages strategic innovation with disruptive technologies. He has a strong background in Artificial Intelligence with a PhD in Machine Learning from the AI department at the University of Edinburgh. He worked on US DoD DARPA programmes in early 1990s applying AI planning and scheduling techniques to military logistics and combat operations (Operation Desert Storm, Iraq War1) and worked for UK MoD for 15 years exploiting AI for military command decision-making. He got involved in quantum computing in 2013 and has been supporting the UK Quantum Technology Programme by holding commercialisation workshops for InnovateUK since 2016. This presentation covers an InnovateUK grant for exploring quantum algorithms for optimised planning and scheduling tasks.
Talks I've Given
Quantum Computing Algorithms for optimised Planning and Scheduling (QCAPS)
Featuring Robert Desimone
The aim of the project is to explore the technical/business feasibility of enhancing existing techniques for optimising planning and scheduling tasks with quantum algorithms and to explore specific market applications of these hybrid techniques for distribution logistics/traffic-flow...qcaps exploration data optimisation quantum-algorithms devops scheduling planning quantum-computing
