Geordie Rose is the CTO and Founder of D-Wave Computing, a Canadian company that is currently selling a 512 qubit superconducting quantum annealing system. They plan to have a 2048 qubit system within about two years. The 2048 qubit system could be 500,000 times faster for certain optimization problems. Google and Lockheed have already purchased systems. The quantum annealing systems is focused on optimization problems useful for certain artificial intelligence and machine learning problems.
