D-Wave Systems

D-Wave, the world's first quantum computing company, is using the deepest insights of physics and computer science to achieve breakthrough approaches to computation to address some of the most complex challenges in science, business and government.

Our latest system, the D-Wave 2X™ quantum computer, is a 1000+ qubit computing system. D-Wave’s systems are used by major corporations, universities and government agencies such as Lockheed Martin, Google, NASA, Harvard and the University of Southern California.

D-Wave systems are designed to solve a broad class of difficult optimization problems that have information volumes and complexity that overwhelm the ability of conventional computers to derive accurate, timely and actionable knowledge. Quantum computing holds the promise of unlocking these computational bottlenecks to enable better understanding and create new insights into important problems for customers in defense and intelligence, web search, cancer research, bioinformatics and logistics, with a focus on machine learning, pattern analysis, and a whole host of difficult graph and number theory problems.
