D-Wave Systems

D-Wave was spun out of the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 1999 to commercialize superconductor-based, quantum computer processors.

D-Wave is pioneering the development of a new class of high-performance computing system designed to solve complex search and optimization problems, with an initial emphasis on synthetic intelligence and machine learning applications.

D-Wave systems are architected around an innovative processor that uses a computational model known as adiabatic quantum computing (AQC). These processors exploit quantum effects to solve search and optimization problems in a new way. They are fabricated using superconducting metals instead of semiconductors and are operated at ultra-low temperatures in a magnetic vacuum.
