Opportunities for Open-Source Development for D-Wave Systems

Authors: Steve Reinhardt (D-Wave Systems Inc)

Abstract: Classical supercomputers have open-source projects ranging through the technology stack from applications, tools, compilers, operating systems, firmware, and even hardware. Quantum computers are less mature and have converged to common forms much less than classical computers. In this talk we examine the opportunities for open-source contributions at the various levels of the technology stack for D-Wave’s annealing-based quantum computers. Many of the best opportunities are in mapping various problem types to the quadratic unconstrained binary optimization (QUBO) form optimized by the quantum processing unit.
