D-Wave’s Qubits 2024 Quantum Computing Conference Announced for June 17-18 in Boston

Event to showcase “success powered by quantum” through business optimization use cases, progress in quantum-fueled AI technology, and demonstrations of annealing quantum computing performance over classical computing

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 9, 2024 -- D-Wave Quantum Inc. (NYSE: QBTS) (“D-Wave”), a leader in quantum computing systems, software, and services and the world’s first commercial supplier of quantum computers, today announced that its Qubits 2024 quantum computing conference will take place in Boston on June 17 and 18, 2024. Themed “Success, Powered by Quantum,” the conference will demonstrate how D-Wave, partners, and customers such as Momentum Worldwide (part of Interpublic Group), Los Alamos National Lab, Zapata AI and others are achieving tangible outcomes with D-Wave’s innovative annealing quantum computing technology.

The two-day conference will focus on the impact of D-Wave’s quantum-powered technologies, as they address highly complex problems in areas such as supply chain logistics, manufacturing, government, and life sciences. It will be packed with demonstrations of new quantum solutions, product updates, the company’s latest scientific accomplishments, and customer applications, both in development and in production.

The conference will highlight:

  • D-Wave’s development of new quantum-powered algorithms to deliver better and more energy-efficient models for generative AI, and how they could lead to breakthroughs in complex problems in drug discovery, logistics management, manufacturing optimization and more.
  • Valuable customer quantum-hybrid applications that are driving efficiencies and cost savings across a myriad of optimization use cases, including employee and driver scheduling, promotional tour routing, and industrial construction design. D-Wave customers including Davidson Technologies, Pattison Food Group, POLARISqb, QuantumBasel with VINCI, and SavantX will share how quantum solutions are fueling operational excellence.
  • In-depth analysis on the latest quantum business trends from Brian Lenahan, Founder and Chair of Quantum Strategy Institute, and Bob Sorensen, Senior Vice President of Research at Hyperion Research.
  • Groundbreaking research and benchmarks of D-Wave’s technology compared to both classical and quantum alternatives.
  • The latest advancements in D-Wave’s quantum technology and software, with expert guidance on how to quickly adopt quantum computing in the enterprise.

“We are thrilled to bring Qubits to the global innovation hub of Boston this year, where we will share the incredible momentum we’re seeing as our quantum technologies cross the chasm from experimentation to operational use,” said Dr. Alan Baratz, CEO of D-Wave. “This is the must-attend event of the year for anyone looking to understand how today’s quantum technology is transforming business, especially as it merges with AI to fuel the next generation of groundbreaking applications.”

For those unable to attend in person, D-Wave will offer a free livestream of the first day’s morning talks, allowing participants worldwide to engage with the conference content virtually.
