The company D-Wave has launched an open and free platform for quantum computing


With the wide spread of quantum computers needs to produce a real revolution in the field of computer science, providing not only extra power but also improved performance in cybersecurity. We already have quantum computers, but they are available only to giants like Intel, IBM, Google and others. However, everyone can touch the future today. At least this is reported by the authors of the project D-Wave, which recently launched a project where anyone can freely take advantage of quantum computing.

The New platform has been called Quantum Leap Application Environment and it real gives access to a quantum computer from D-Wave. Free of charge. However, have to sign up and have any amount of expertise. Now most of the available quantum computers for programming and operation need to be versed in quantum physics. D-Wave offers a much more simple approach.

"anyone who has an email address and a basic knowledge of Python programming and the Ocean (open source software suite), as well as a desire to touch the future of computing machinery — subscribe to our program. Unlike other quantum computing systems, which require not only huge knowledge and time to run experiments because the queue is a few months, Quantum Leap user Application Environment can get instant access to quantum technologies." — said the Executive Director of research and development at D-Wave's Alan Baratz.

The authors have positioned your project not just as a medium for data processing, and as teaching system. The project website has a section with guides, and after registration, each user gets 1 minute of computation. It may seem small, but in reality it is not so. Even to handle the most demanding and resource-intensive programs requires from 15 to 250 milliseconds so that you can get from 200 to 4000 starts per month on a quantum computer D-Wave 2000Q.

However, all may not be so rosy. Despite the fact that D-Wave Systems has been a long time, in the opinion of some critics, their computing power can be "far from quantized". For example, according to the research of associate Professor at mit Scott Aaronson, D-Wave failed to prove that their qubits of the computer are in a state of quantum entanglement. But in any case, to test this technology it would be interesting that you can do by clicking on the link .
