D-Wave Quantum (NYSE: QBTS), a leader in quantum computing systems, software, and services and the world’s first commercial supplier of quantum computers, will participate in Deloitte’s upcoming quantum computing webinar series. The episode, slated for Aug. 3, 2023, is titled “Quantum Annealing Unleashed: Optimize Your Business Operations” and will feature a discussion by Murray Thom, D-Wave vice president of quantum business innovation; Scott Buchholz, global quantum lead at Deloitte Consulting LLP; and Sal Certo, quantum optimization lead at Deloitte. The 60-minute webinar will begin at noon ET. The hour-long event will include a discussion on annealing quantum computing’s near-term value and will include real-world use cases that show the technology’s role in fueling operational excellence.
In addition, D-Wave announced two new collaborations facilitate key hardware research programs for quantum computing systems. D-Wave is working with the Institute for Quantum Computing (“IQC”) at the University of Waterloo on these research projects, funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (“NSERC”) Quantum Alliance program. According to the announcement, the focus will be on identifying improvements in device design and materials quality that support increasingly coherent superconducting quantum processors.
“Quantum computing has the potential to revolutionize how we tackle societal problems,” said D-Wave Quantum CEO Dr. Alan Baratz in the press release. “Key to this transformation is the ability to provide larger quantum systems with greater coherence, and these NSERC projects each facilitate important R&D for these next-generation systems. We’re excited to engage with the University of Waterloo through the NSERC program to further build out a robust quantum ecosystem that can tackle real-world problems.”
