Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: Quantum vs. Optical Annealing: Benchmarking the Coherent Ising > Machine and D-Wave

Seminar: Solid State Technology and Devices: EE: CS | July 12 | 1-2 p.m. | Cory Hall, The Hogan Room, 521

 Ryan Hamerly, Postdoctoral Fellow, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

We propose that the performance penalty stems from the sparse connectivity of the QA and the resulting embedding overhead, which provides strong experimental support for efforts to increase the connectivity of quantum annealers.
