This joins the QMASM macro assembler for D-Wave systems, a tool written in Python by Scott Pakin of Los Alamos National Labs. D-Wave president Bo Ewald says "D-Wave is driving the hardware forward but we need more smart people thinking about applications, and another set thinking about software tools."
"That's one example. Statistically, we're seeing that about one third of the time, Watson is proposing an additional diagnosis."
The researchers apparently tested their supercomputer on 36 years worth of data, and reported proudly that they could predict winter weather a year in advance -- with 62% accuracy.
Do you ever wonder what the world will look like when everyone has their own personal quantum computer?
