D-Wave Quantum Featured in The Wall Street Journal

PALO ALTO, Calif. – May 29, 2024 -- D-Wave Quantum Inc. (NYSE: QBTS) (“D-Wave” or the “Company”), a leader in quantum computing systems, software, and services and the world’s first commercial supplier of quantum computers, today announced that it has been featured in a Wall Street Journal article on quantum computing, which highlighted its technology’s strengths in tackling real-world optimization problems.

The article, titled “Quantum Computing Gets Real: It Could Even Shorten Your Airport Connection,” showcases how recent technological advances are enabling businesses and researchers to explore quantum computing for practical use cases. It specifically notes how D-Wave customers have used its annealing quantum computing technology to address optimization problems including grocery store driver delivery scheduling, cross-country promotional tour routing, and cargo-handling at one of the United States’ busiest ports. The article also highlights recent research from D-Wave, citing it as an example of a computational supremacy claim that, according to a source interviewed for the article, is “actually the strongest” of all the computational supremacy claims so far.

The story comes as D-Wave continues to be a leader in the commercialization of quantum computing. D-Wave’s Advantage™ quantum computer, currently the world’s largest quantum computer (5,000+ qubits), and its Leap™ real-time quantum cloud service are in market today, helping customers accelerate the adoption and deployment of quantum and hybrid-quantum applications. D-Wave has already taken a customer’s commercial application into production, meaning its systems are used to facilitate its customers’ daily operations. D-Wave is also the only company commercially offering annealing quantum computing, which is uniquely suited to solve optimization problems, challenges that are pervasive within commercial enterprises.

“This acknowledgment by The Wall Street Journal of quantum’s growing relevance and importance reflects what we’re seeing with our customers — a steadily increasing appetite and enthusiasm to harness the power of quantum to solve their most computationally complex problems,” said Dr. Alan Baratz, CEO of D-Wave. “We believe there is no other company right now in the world delivering the same level of commercial-grade, production-ready quantum technology as D-Wave. It’s an incredibly important moment for the industry, and this recognition of D-Wave’s leadership is gratifying.”
