Running a Successful Corporate Innovation Program

Event details

Session Summary

Quantum computing, while still in its infancy it is rapidly becoming democratized with “Quantum-computing as a service” online platforms like LEAP, where anybody can access some ‘quantum computing time’ with minimum coding requirements. During the talk we learned what type of problems quantum computing is suitable to solve and how different organizations around the world are embracing this technology and applying it to solve their optimization problems.

Starting in 1999, D-Wave has been one of the frontrunners of this technology and a proud Canadian (and BC!) icon offering their state-of-the-art computers to tech powerhouses like Google, NASA and Lockheed Martin.
