Representatives from D-Wave, the first commercial quantum computing company, will discuss the company’s technologies at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 6, in Bldg. 50A-5132. The presentation will briefly review D-Wave and its products – which claims to have built the world’s first commercial quantum computing systems. D-Wave has created a unique quantum computer that uses superconducting circuits to create systems with up to 500 qubits in a “quantum annealing” architecture. The talk will cover the hardware, architecture, programming models and some applications. The company released its first commercial system, the D-Wave One™ quantum computer in 2010. In 2013, D-Wave shipped its 512-qubit D-Wave Two™ system.
For decades, controlled nuclear fusion has held the promise of a safe, clean, sustainable energy source that could help wean the world from fossil fuels. But the challenges of harnessing the power of the sun in an Earth-based nuclear fusion reactor have been many, with much of the progress over the last several years coming in incremental advances.
Now simulations run at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) have shed light on a central piece of the puzzle: the relationship between fast ion particles in the plasma and plasma microturbulence. More>
A public memorial service will be held for Suzanne Stevenson at 2 p.m., Saturday, March 29, at the El Cerrito Kingdom Hall, located at 532 Elm Street. Stevenson, who died Feb. 16, was working as an administrative assistant at NERSC and had filled other roles within Computing Sciences since 2006, starting out in the Computational Research Division. El Cerrito Kingdom Hall is a three-minute walk from the El Cerrito Plaza BART station. Parking is limited.
