D-Wave Systems is installing one of its advanced high performance computers to help research into machine learning, speech recognition and the search for exoplanets
D-Wave Systems Inc. of Burnaby, B.C., said Thursday that one of its 512-qubhut quantum computers has been bought for installation at the new Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California.
The lab is a collaboration among NASA, Google and Universities Space Research Association. The association will make 20 per cent of the system’s time available to university researchers.
The goal is to use quantum computing to advance machine learning to solve some of the most challenging computer science problems, the parties said in a news release.
These include Web search, speech recognition, planning and scheduling, search for exoplanets and support operations in mission control centers.
Installation of the D-Wave Two system will take several months, but the system is expected to be online in the third quarter.
“We are extremely pleased to make this announcement,” D-Wave CEO Vern Brownell said in a statement.
