Study validates the quantum properties of D-Wave’s computer

A new study might help confirm that D-Wave Systems’ quantum computer chip might actually be what it claims to be. Conducted at the University of Southern California, where the D-Wave system owned by aerospace contractor Lockheed Martin is based, a team of scientists has concluded that the 128-qubit processor “behaved in a way that agrees with a model called ‘quantum Monte Carlo,’ yet disagreed with two candidate classical models.” In two weeks at our Structure Data conference, D-Wave CEO Vern Brownell will talk about what quantum computers can do and how they’ll be available as cloud services.

    I’m a fan, so don’t get me wrong, but, “Study Validates” and “study might help confirm” are two very different messages.

  2. Quantum computing is actually addressed as the ultimate of data processing, with assurances of fulfilling calculations thousands of times faster than modern supercomputers while absorbing significantly less energy.

    Thanks fro the information Derrick.
