Integration of Quantum Computing into High Performance Computing

SESSION: Invited Talks 7

EVENT TYPE: Invited Speakers

TIME: 3:30PM - 4:15PM

SESSION CHAIR: Robert F. Lucas

Presenter(s):Colin P. Williams

ROOM:Mile High

ABSTRACT:
The media likes to portray quantum computing as being in a head-to-head race with high performance computing. In reality, we foresee ways for quantum computing to complement and enhance high performance computing and vice versa. In this talk I will describe D-Wave's approach to quantum computing including its operating principles, system architecture, evidence of quantumness, and report on our latest performance data. In particular, I will describe D-Wave's new "Vesuvius" 512-qubit quantum processor and describe several examples of computational problems we have mapped to our architecture. I will then describe strategies for integrating our quantum processor into mainstream high performance computing systems. As our quantum processor is naturally well suited to solving discrete combinatorial optimization, machine learning and artificial intelligence problems the talk should be of broad interest to computer scientists, physicists, and engineers with interests in a wide range of application areas.
