D-Wave Systems, who has commercial 2000 qubit quantum adiabatic computing systems, announced that Google, NASA, and Universities Space Research Association (USRA) have elected to upgrade their D-Wave 2X™ quantum computer to the new D-Wave 2000Q™ system, under the terms of …

adiabatic quantum computerDwave 2X quantum annealing machine 90% accurate in recognizing tree cover in aerial photos which was better than conventional computers

No Comments
Physicist Edward Boyda of St. Mary’s College of California in Moraga and colleagues fed hundreds of NASA satellite images of California into the D-Wave 2X processor, which contains 1152 qubits. The researchers asked the computer to consider dozens of features—hue, …

adiabatic quantum computerA healthy lifestyle and a moderate amount of genetic and other luck means life expectancy of 95+ is possible now

No Comments
The University of Pennsylvania has a life expectancy calculator based upon on a statistical regression of more than 400,000 data samples. The data was collected by the National Institute of Health and AARP. Major longevity factors that are under your …

adiabatic quantum computerRecipe for room temperature superconductors from California Institute of Technology

No Comments
Researchers demonstrate that superconductor critical temperature can be raised above room-temperature to ≈ 400K in cuprates by precise control of the spatial separation of dopants. Hence, there still remains substantial “latent” Tc in cuprates. Their proposed doping strategy and superconducting …

adiabatic quantum computerPaleoanthropologist seems quite sure that hybrid elephant embryo with wooly mammoth characteristics will not be created within two years

No Comments
John Hawkes has that he does not believe that a wooly mammoth embyro will be created within two years. George Church indicated that 45 mammoth-like edits of DNA have been spliced into the Asian elephant genome. “We’re working on ways …

adiabatic quantum computerDWave next redesign will allow for higher connection density 4000 qubits by late 2018 and expansion beyond 10,000 qubits

No Comments
D-Wave is also working on a fifth model, which will provide even greater capacity and connectivity and a closer fit to scientists’ needs. It will likely to launch within two years, the machine will again double the number of qubits, …
