Adiabatic Quantum Computing: What Is It and What It Looks Like Today
Jaka Vodeb, Jožef Stefan Institute, Faculty of mathematics and physics, University of Ljubljana
Adiabatic quantum computing (AQC) has come a long way since it‘s inception in 1998. This seminar will present the basics of AQC, the progress it has made so far and the current state of the art. One of the most recent breakthroughs is D-Wave‘s release of readily available AQC hardware through their Leap platform. A live demonstration will show how anyone can use a quantum computer today.
