As of Nov. 13, 2013, NASA’s Ames Research Center at Moffett Field in California’s Silicon Valley will begin facilitating news media interviews about its new quantum computing efforts.
In a partnership with Google and independent, nonprofit research corporation Universities Space Research Association (USRA), Ames has established the Quantum Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (QuAIL) at its NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) facility. The laboratory houses a 512-qubit D-Wave Two™ quantum computer.
Lockheed quantum computer experts are available for questions via twitter today.
If the Lockheed and Dwave experts do not answer your questions then you can submit a question in the comments below and Nextbigfuture will compile and ask NASA next week.
NASA researchers will use this system to investigate quantum algorithms that might someday dramatically improve the agency’s ability to solve difficult optimization problems in aeronautics, Earth and space sciences, and space exploration. Applications relevant to NASA include machine learning, pattern recognition, mission planning and scheduling, distributed navigation and coordination, and system diagnostics and anomaly detection.
