D-Wave’s quantum optimizer might be quantum after all

D-Wave’s quantum optimizer might be quantum after all | Technology | Scoop.it
Quantum optimizer's behavior clearly isn't classical.
Nicos Achilleoudis's insight:

Main explanation of the significance of this article:

 

Basekid wrote:What sort of problems could be solved by using/reading the ground state of magnets?

BorisTheRedSmack-Fu Master, in training responded: jump to post

 Any kind of problem where you have to take into account many variables and minimize some overall cost function. For example, let's say we are designing a suspension bridge. There is a single support tower in the middle, the body of the bridge itself, and the major support truss that goes from the top of the tower to the ends of the bridge body. The major truss is attached to the body by a series of minor vertical trusses. The placement of the minor trusses is not trivial - we can vary their spacing, thickness, material, tension, and so forth. There can be hundreds of minor trusses. An analytical solution may be completely intractable. A simple gradient descent optimizer will probably be unstable, and likely won't even find the most optimal solution, instead getting stuck in a local minimum somewhere. Simulated annealing can avoid local minima, and can generally deal with huge variable spaces.

As long as you can abstractly represent the original problem as a distribution of magnetic spins, this is applicable to anything.
