"Quantum computing will reach its full potential through collaborative partnerships with pioneering organizations like DNA-SEQ and 1QBit, who are working to solve incredibly complex problems," said
To support the building of an application ecosystem, D-Wave Systems provides access to its quantum computers and the expertise necessary to map specific problems onto its quantum hardware. DNA-SEQ and 1QBit are working closely with D-Wave to develop machine learning and optimization techniques to address critical real-world applications.
DNA-SEQ aims to enable more precisely targeted drug therapies for cancer patients by using 3D precision crystallography, and a patient's full genomic data, to identify early drug resistance and to match their specific mutations to more effective therapies. Existing technology can only analyze small amounts of genomic data, limiting the ability to match a patient's specific mutation to the optimal cancer drug. Ongoing collaborations with the Children's Hospital Los Angeles,
"Exploring cancer genomics using 3D crystallography and full genomic data enables extraordinary pattern matching of mutations to available drugs, and it is only possible with D-Wave's unique computational machine learning capabilities and our crystal structures libraries," said Dr.
As the first company to use quantum computing for financial applications, 1QBit is building toolsets and working with individual organizations to address complex finance problems including large portfolio optimization, structured asset backed security pricing, market correlations mapping, capital project budgeting, pair trading and trading strategy development.
"We're working on problems with real industry constraints, and taking quantum optimization from theoretical applications to real world solutions," said
D-Wave and 1QBit will both be presenting about their respective technologies on
Founded in 1999, D-Wave's mission is to integrate new discoveries in physics and computer science into breakthrough approaches to computation. The company's flagship product, the 512-qubit D-Wave Two™ computer, is built around a novel type of superconducting processor that uses quantum mechanics to massively accelerate computation.
In 2013, D-Wave announced the installation of a D-Wave Two system at the new
