- D-Wave’s Qubits annual user conference, currently in its seventh year, is one of the industry’s premier quantum computing events differentiated by its focus on real-world applications of quantum technology
- The company displayed its continued commercial customer momentum and real-time product innovation, reflecting the increasing enterprise adoption of quantum computing solutions
- The conference demonstrated how D-Wave’s proprietary technology helps organizations solve highly complex business problems today
D-Wave Quantum (NYSE: QBTS), a leader in quantum computing systems, software, and services and the world’s first commercial supplier of quantum computers, announced new and renewed commercial customer engagements and product updates for its annealing and gate-model quantum computing solutions during the company’s annual Qubits 2023 user conference. The company’s continued commercial customer momentum and product innovation reflect the increased adoption of quantum computing solutions and showcase the technology’s ability to solve businesses’ most challenging computational problems today (https://nnw.fm/pkc38).
The Qubits event, now in its seventh year, is one of the industry’s premier quantum computing events and is differentiated by its focus on the real-world application of quantum technology to today’s business problems. Quantum-hybrid applications on display at Qubits included solutions from: Mastercard (customer loyalty and rewards allocation), Davidson Technologies (missile defense optimization), Recruit Group (TV commercial allocation), Pattison Food Group (grocery operations optimization), SavantX (port operations optimization), and many more. In addition to showcasing commercial quantum applications during the conference, D-Wave announced that it had added several new high profile customers to its portfolio, working on a diverse set of potential use cases. New and renewing commercial customers working with D-Wave on quantum-hybrid use cases include Siemens Healthineers, Unisys, and Davidson Technologies. These companies are exploring various applications that span medical imaging, military defense optimization, and vehicle routing.
In the event keynote, Dr. Alan Baratz, CEO of D-Wave, outlined that practical quantum computing solutions are becoming essential to helping businesses compete, innovate, and grow. “As we gather at our annual Qubits user conference in Miami this week, the commercialization of quantum is on full display. Currently, more than 60 companies are working with us on real-world quantum-hybrid applications that are unlocking business value today,” Dr. Baratz underlined. “Unlike other modalities, annealing quantum computing is commercial-grade and enterprise-ready, and customers are realizing the benefits of this powerful technology now.”
During the conference, D-Wave shared the progress made toward its next-generation Advantage2TM annealing quantum computing system, expected to feature 7000+ qubits and 20-way connectivity, which will be implemented in a new lower-noise fabrication stack to enable customers to solve incrementally more complex problems with greater precision.
D-Wave also showcased several recent enhancements to its constrained quadratic model (“CQM”) hybrid solver in its Leap cloud service. These include continuous variables that enable better representation of constrained problems, the handling of weighted restraints that allow quantum developers to more easily and accurately model problems, and pre-solve techniques that reduce the size of problems and allow for larger models to be submitted to the hybrid solver.
Other milestones shared by D-Wave during the event covered the scalable qubit design and readout method validation and the company’s gate-model simulator launched in the Ocean suite of open-source tools. “Our relentless and on-time product delivery reflects a deep commitment to ongoing innovation that accelerates quantum computing adoption, usage and customer value,” Dr. Baratz added. “Through the continued development of our quantum annealing and gate model quantum solutions, we’re focused on building and delivering the full breadth of quantum solutions to our customers, both today and into the future, bringing our unique cross-platform vision to life.”
