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.

 
Tip: When first using Zoom you are asked to download a launcher plug-in. After this, you should be able to open the webinar room from the link. The webinar room is timed, and will open when the webinar begins. Remember to click "join audio conference by computer" when signing in. If you are using a headset, it is easiest to plug it in before opening Zoom. If you cannot hear any audio, check that the correct output settings on your device (normally "internal speakers" or "headset") have been chosen.
