D-WAVE 2X – THE REVOLUTIONARY QUANTUM COMPUTER
Yes, Its real! Meet D-Wave 2x – the revolutionary quantum computing system by Google & NASA. The report says It is more than 100000000 times faster than normal single core systems. Quantum computer doesn’t work in deterministic way but Non-Deterministic & probabilistic way. It works on the theory of Quantum Mechanical phenomenon and uses quantum algorithm to compute on complex huge data by Quantum Bits(Q-bits) rather than Digital Binary bits. The computer returns many very good answers in a short amount of time – 10,000 answers in one second. This gives the user not only the optimal solution or a single answer, but also other alternatives to choose from.
The D-WAVE 2X System overview
- Works on Quantum Mechanical phenomenon
- Non-Deterministic & Probabilistic
- Uses Qbits rather than Bits
- Uses less power than the Traditional Super Computers
- Works on extreme environment
- Uses Quantum Machine Instruction or High Level Languages like C,C++ etc
“We need to make it easier to take a practical optimization problem as it occurs on some engineer’s desk,” said Neven. “We need to make the input into the machine easier. That is not there yet.”
