D-Wave Demonstrates Large-Scale Programmable Quantum Simulation

Today D-Wave Systems announced the publication of a significant scientific result in the peer-reviewed journal Science. The article, titled “Phase transitions in a programmable spin glass simulator,” details how a D-Wave 2000Q quantum computer was used to predict phase transitions within a particular quantum mechanical system known as the transverse field Ising model. “This work represents an important milestone for quantum computing, because it is the first time physics of this kind has been simulated in a scalable architecture at such a large scale,” said Vern Brownell, CEO of D-Wave.

Video: Panel Discussion on Supercomputing for Aerospace

In this video from the AIAA Aviation Conference 2015, panelists discuss Supercomputing: Roadmap and its Future Role in Aerospace Engineering. “Supercomputing has made significant contributions in aerospace engineering in recent decades, including advances in computational fluid dynamics that has fundamentally altered the way aircraft are designed. And the relentless growth in high-performance computing power holds promise of huge leaps in engine performance and other aerospace technology.”
