deep space computing staff will attend the Platform For Advanced Scientific Computing conference, at ETH in Zürich from June 12 to 14, 2019.
Some short impressions on the interesting DWave seminar on Quantum Computing held in Milan, March 25-27
Each of the squares on the wafer on the image above are QPUs (Quantum Processing Units) built on the DWave 2000Q architecture. The naked eye discerns on each QPU a grid of littler cells, unfortunately not visible in the picture above. The cells are 256 in total, arranged in a 16x16 grid, and each one contains 8 qubits connected in a complete bipartite graph K_4,4. Each cell has 8 connections to other adiacent cells which are couplers from a qubit in one cell to another qubit in another cell. This is the Chimera graph.
