Proposals Open For Quantum Computer Enabling Artificial Intelligence Research

A D-Wave computer. Image credit: D-Wave Systems Inc. The Universities Space Research Association (USRA) is now accepting proposals for the use of its quantum computer, appropriate for research on artificial intelligence algorithms and advanced programming techniques for quantum annealing. USRA is an independent, nonprofit research corporation working in conjunction with NASA’s D-Wave Two quantum computer at the Ames Research Center. Quantum computers enable information to be expressed as zeros and ones simultaneously using quantum bits or qubits, allowing for types of processing that are not possible in traditional computing. This particular quantum computer in use at the Ames Research Center has 1,097 qubits in the working graph and runs the commercially available “Washington”-generation chip. Qualified researchers can submit a proposal at any time. Qualified researchers who are accepted and who…
