Google,NASA shows off D-Wave 2X quantum computer

The era of quantum computing appears to be getting nearer. Quantum computing company D-Wave Systems recently announced that it has entered into an agreement covering the installation of a succession of D-Wave systems located at NASA’s Ames Research Centre in California.This agreement supports collaboration among Google, NASA and USRA (Universities Space Research Association) that is dedicated to studying how quantum computing can advance artificial intelligence and machine learning, and the solution of difficult optimisation problems.The new agreement enables Google and its partners to keep their D-Wave system at the state-of-the-art for up to seven years, with new generations of D-Wave systems to be installed at NASA Ames as they become available.”The new agreement is the largest order in D-Wave’s history, and indicative of the importance of quantum computing in its…
