Google and NASA develop the quantum processor ‘D-Wave 2X system’

A new partnership between NASA, Google and the Universities Space Research Association (USRA) announced a five year Space Act Agreement, that will put into action the most powerful “D-Wave 2X system“, a state-of-the-art quantum processor, which will enable customers to run much larger, more complex problems on the system. The Quantum Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (QuAIL), is NASA’s agency’s hub for an experiment to evaluate the potential of quantum. Two years ago, the agency installed a previous D-Wave Two quantum computer in the NASA’s Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) facility at NASA’s Ames Research Center, and named it “the most powerful of its kind in the world.” At 1,000+ qubits, the D-Wave 2X quantum processor evaluates 21,000 possible solutions simultaneously as it converges on optimal or near optimal solutions, more possibilities than there…
