Quantum Computing Talk on May 6

D-Wave imageRepresentatives 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.
