D-Wave Systems has a webinar in which they explain how to apply the power of quantum computing to gaming optimization using data from one of the world’s most popular fighting games: Pokémon.
They explore a classic example of a combinatorial problem: optimizing the makeup of a fighting team based on the effectiveness of variable attack types and defensive combinations.
