This project, launched in 2008, is run by D-Wave, a Canadian company trying to build a quantum computer. D-Wave's stated goal is "to predict the performance of superconducting adiabatic quantum computers on a variety of hard problems arising in fields ranging from materials science to machine learning". The company's current focus is trying to determine how an adiabatic quantum computer's running time scales with the size of the input problem, says Dr. Kamran Karimi, D-Wavealgorithms researcher. "We want to go to 200-qubit and 240-qubit problems," Karimi says.
