Some new Rainier science

Here is a short break from the sparse coding mayhem. A recent paper by some interesting folks appeared today on the arxiv. They ran some experiments on the Rainier-based system at USC.

Here is some of what they found:

Our experiments have demonstrated that quantum annealing with more than one hundred qubits takes place in the D-Wave One device… the device has sufficient ground state quantum coherence to realise a quantum annealing of a transverse field Ising model.

Here is a link to the arxiv paper.
