Quantum Computing Training Class at Virginia Tech Hume Center

The Hume Center leads Virginia Tech’s research, education, and outreach programs focused on the challenges of cybersecurity and autonomy in the context of national and homeland security. In May D-Wave held a training class on quantum computing at the Center.

The attendees were throughly engaged, and during the class individual attendees discussed their ideas for applications.  This whiteboard displays the result of a discussion on mapping the game of Pong on to the D-Wave system.

More serious applications of interest were computational quantum chemistry, communication security and disease mapping for ophthalmology.
