This second quantum computing webinar presents a quantum computing approach known as quantum annealing. Quantum annealers are a subclass of quantum computers that sacrifice a degree of control in favor of scalability. As a result, most of the early manifestations of quantum computing are based on quantum annealing. An example is the first commercial quantum computers by D-Wave Systems.


In this webinar, the method of quantum annealing is introduced together with some real-world applications of the approach. A rudimentary example of mapping a problem onto the D-Wave System's quantum annealer will be presented.


Prerequisites:

This introductory webinar does not require any prior knowledge of physics or computing. Having seen the first quantum computing webinar (https://youtu.be/44F0rYmLT4Y) is beneficial but not mandatory for following this one.
