Can you give an estimate of:
1) release date
2) qubits utilized on release date
Geordie – September 23, 2006
1) first public demo of the technology some time in Q4/2006
2) the demo will either use a 16- or a 64-qubit chip – which we use will be determined after completing some tests in October.
The first demo has as its objective a demonstration of what the machine is designed to do; we’re going to run a couple of applications on it. It’s not supposed to be faster than conventional methods, but the approach is eminently scalable; in a relatively short period of time (at least on the problem type it’s designed for) nothing else will be able to compete with it.
