"D-Wave 101: Running Our First Problem"

In our last seminar we explored D-Wave’s Leap Cloud Platform and some current use cases. In this session, we’ll look a bit deeper in how to formulate and run an optimization problem using D-Wave’s quantum computers. Starting with a problem description, a binary quadratic model will be developed and Python program created using the Ocean SDK. Finally, the program will be run live on a quantum computer with a discussion of results and next steps.


Victoria joined the sales team at D-Wave Systems in 2018 and is a Senior Technical Analyst based in Germany. In her current role, Victoria works with teams around the world to bring quantum annealing to research and industry through seminars, workshops, and conferences. Before joining D-Wave, Victoria worked as a Senior Mathematician with the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory’s Information Directorate, including a special assignment as the Executive Officer to the Director. She received her Ph.D. in discrete mathematics from Arizona State University in 2012 and more recently completed a Master's degree in computer science with a specialization in machine learning through Georgia Tech University.
