AINewsBreaks – D-Wave Announces 1,200+ Qubit Advantage2(TM) Prototype, Strategic Collaboration with Deloitte Canada

D-Wave Quantum Inc. (NYSE: QBTS) (“D-Wave”), a leader in quantum computing systems, software and services and the world’s first commercial supplier of quantum computers, today announced it has calibrated a 1,200+ qubit Advantage2(TM) prototype, which will soon be available in the company’s Leap(TM) real-time quantum cloud service. Developed with a lower-noise, multilayer superconducting integrated-circuit fabrication stack, the new prototype demonstrates significant performance gains on hard optimization problems and is expected to be particularly powerful for new use cases such as machine learning.

“The new Advantage2 prototype represents a giant step up in performance,” said Mark W. Johnson, senior vice president of quantum technologies and systems products at D-Wave. “With the new lower-noise fabrication stack, we’re seeing significant gains in coherence, connectivity and energy scale, which will translate to higher-quality and faster solutions. This 1,200+ qubit prototype gives us great confidence that the full Advantage2 system will be our most performant system yet and unlock substantial computational power and problem-solving capabilities for our customers.”

The company also announced a new strategic alliance with Deloitte Canada to expedite the exploration and adoption of quantum computing solutions among governments and businesses in Canada. Deloitte is a global leader in serving the public sector, and the collaboration aims to accelerate the adoption of near-term quantum technologies, such as annealing quantum computing and quantum-hybrid, to tackle key computationally complex challenges faced by the public sector.

“D-Wave has been working with Deloitte in the United States on a variety of different use cases related to transportation and national security,” said Irwan Owen, vice president of growth for D-Wave. “We are excited to be expanding our relationship into Canada and bringing the computational power of quantum to help transform the Canadian government’s operations and fuel innovation.”
