Quantum Computing Demo Announced


Quantum Computing Demo Announcement

We have fixed the dates for the demo of our Orion quantum computing system. We are going to hold two events, one at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California on February 13th, and the second at the Telus World of Science in Vancouver, Canada on February 15th.

These events are open to the public, but registration is required as we’re expecting full houses at both events. Registration will open shortly and can be done via our website here.

Will the “adiabatic” model of quantum computing, (which D-Wave’s system utilizes) bypass the difficulties that have constrained advancement in quantum computing up until now?

I’m sure that my video encoding projects could benefit!

UPDATE: Endgadget’s take

UPDATE 1: Some technical papers for interested folks!
