What comes after a quantum leap? For Burnaby, B.C.-based D-Wave Systems, it’s Leap 2, a latest iteration of a cloud-based quantum computing service.
- Leap 2 builds on 18 months’ value of knowledge with D-Wave’s Leap service, built on a substructure of a company’s 2000Q quantum annealing computer. The upgraded use has a hybrid solver that lets users take on formidable problems with adult to 10,000 variables, regulating a mix of quantum and exemplary cloud resources, and a problem examiner that lets developers use visible collection to map their problems onto a quantum estimate unit.
- There’s an stretched Quantum Application Environment and an Integrated Developer Environment with a prebuilt, configured Ocean SDK for quantum hybrid Python development. Leap 2 is also designed to play good with D-Wave’s next-generation, 5,000-qubit Advantage computing system, due for recover after this year.
- The quantum cloud ascent is directed during gripping gait with identical services such as Microsoft’s Azure Quantum use and Amazon Web Services’ Amazon Braket height (which has D-Wave as a partner). D-Wave will excavate some-more deeply into Leap 2’s new facilities during a “sneak preview” webinar scheduled for 10 a.m. PT Thursday.
