Distinguishing Classical and Quantum Models for the D-Wave Device

Here’s a neat paper from UCL and USC researchers ruling out several classical models for the D-Wave Two, including the SSSV model (“…the SSSV model can be rejected as a classical model for the D-Wave device”), and giving indirect evidence for up to 40 qubit entanglement in a real computer processor.

  1. Geordie: Your Feb. 4, 2014 blog, refuting the SSSV paper was well worth it, especially in light of the new paper in this blog, and in light of the peer-review & subsequent publication, in Nature Physics, of the original paper of Boxio et al., which caused all this bickering!. Congrats.

  2. Hi Geordie, congrats on the Canadian Technology Leader. Will D-Wave hire a Chinese? I am a Ph.D student at University of Waterloo. Thank you.

  3. Hi Geordie,

    Great blog, keep up the great work!
    I was probbed to comment by seeing a trailer for Transcendence, it totally made me curious if you run into the anti technology crowd and what that looks like. I wonder if that crowd will pick up momentum as you and your peers continue to crack some of the harder questions reguarding the concept of the singularity as it refers to AI.

    Anyway, great stuff Geordie, I’ve seen so many interviews of yours and they really get me excited about what your working on. You have one of the coolest jobs in the world, don’t forget that!
