D-Wave's approach to quantum computing: 1000-qubits and counting! - Colin Williams

In this talk I will describe D-Wave's approach to quantum computing, including the system architecture of our 1000-qubit D-Wave 2X, its programming model, and performance benchmarks. Furthermore, I will describe how the native optimization and sampling capabilities of the quantum processor can be exploited to tackle problems in a variety of fields including medicine, machine learning, and computational finance.
