A lattice of 2000 tiny superconducting devices, known as qubits, is chilled close to absolute zero to harness quantum effects
A user models a problem into a search for the “lowest energy point in a vast landscape”
The processor considers all possibilities simultaneously to determine the lowest energy and the values that produce it
Multiple solutions are returned to the user, scaled to show optimal answersD-Wave
“The world’s largest maker of quantum computers, Canada’s D-Wave Systems Inc., recently announced the Pegasus generation of its quantum computers, featuring 2.5 times the qubits (more than 5,000) than its predecessor, as well as the elimination of a major stumbling block to commercialization by directly connecting each of those qubits to three times as many nearby qubits as its previous generation, the Chimera.
Analysts are predicting that Pegasus will advance quantum applications down the technology lifetime exponential growth curve.”D-Wave
I’d like to know more about the implementation of a single Qubit and the number and frequency of photons required for each state change.
