Abstract:   Despite the incredible power of today’s supercomputers, there are many complex computing problems that can’t be addressed by conventional systems. For organizations to solve their most challenging problems, a new computing paradigm, quantum computing, is entering the commercial market.
A quantum computer taps directly into the fundamental fabric of reality – the strange and counterintuitive world of quantum mechanics – to speed computation. Quantum computing has the potential to solve currently unsolvable problems, at a fraction of the energy consumption of conventional systems.
D-Wave is the world’s first commercial quantum computing company, whose systems are being used by world-class organizations and institutions including Lockheed-Martin, Google, and NASA to solve their most complex problems. Attend this talk to learn more about how quantum computers work and the types of applications that can benefit from them.
