New Paper: Practical Annealing-Based Quantum Computing

Researchers at D-Wave Systems have published a new paper on Practical Annealing-Based Quantum Computing. “According to the paper, quantum annealing is the viable way forward to connect quantum hardware to real-world applications. Providing annealing-based QPUs as part of a complete computing platform within a declarative paradigm has made this nascent technology accessible for many users who, in turn, are helping to drive this approach forward.”

Practical Annealing-Based Quantum Computing

This paper provides an overview of quantum computers based on the annealing paradigm and manufactured by D-Wave is given. An introductory survey of this approach to quantum computing (QC), together with a snapshot of what is known about performance, is presented. Evidence-based predictions about developments in this region of the QC space are presented.
