D-Wave’s vision about the future of quantum computing and its applications
Quantum computing has the potential to fundamentally change society and how we interact with technology. Quantum is poised to disrupt a number of major industries, including transportation, mobility, materials science, medicine, and more, enabling powerful new applications that aren’t possible with classical supercomputers.
While it’s still early in the lifespan of quantum computing, promising applications with practical business value are emerging. Cloud access and hybrid quantum/ classical computing approaches have made it much easier for virtually any organization or developer to get started building quantum applications.
To date, D-Wave users and customers have built over 200 quantum applications in diverse fields. Major companies, including Menten AI, Volkswagen, the German Aerospace Center, and the Italian State Railway, have used D-Wave quantum computers to optimize various parts of their R&D, resource allocation, and supply chain. As quantum computers increase qubit counts and processing power – such as D-Wave’s upcoming 5000 qubit Advantage system – applications will become more robust and lead to breakthroughs in critical fields, including drug discovery, transportation, and machine learning, among others.
