(InsideHPC) Researchers at D-Wave Systems have published a new paper on Practical Annealing-Based Quantum Computing. The paper can be downloaded here.
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. The development of a QA user ecosystem can be directly attributed to D-Wave’s strategic decision to develop a technological model that puts application performance first and that prioritizes demonstrations of use- fulness for tackling real-world problems.
