In the pic at the right we see a D- wave quantum computer ( product ) , at the left we see an inside view over the quantum invention.
"If you think you understand quantum theory, THEN YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND QUANTUM THEORY.“ – Richard Feynman ,In other words , quantum physics is a very challenging and complicated field . In order to understand it , you need to merge from the traditional way of thinking and deal with this new universe of knowledge.
Definition of Qbits
Quantum computers have been built on the small scale and work continues to upgrade them to more practical models.
DWAVE is working is working on the commercialization of this huge machine in order to use it in different fields to solve huge challenging problems in the simplest and fastest way .
Quantum computers are way faster than traditional computers …and process a very powerful processing system.
The idea of quantum computing was first introduced by Yuri Manin ( on the left ) in 1980 and Richard Feynman ( on the right ) in 1982.
DWAVE is a specialized quantum computing company .
Superposition* : Two things occupying the same place at the same time .(pic at the left )Entanglement* : the connection between two objects that can be very apart. ( pic at the right )Tunneling * : traveling between these two universes
As you can see , classical bit vs quantum bit
This graph shows the enormous variation of the number of qbits in each new invention , this is a big thing , a very important innovation in our world that’s way faster than the traditionnal computers …
This table shows the evolution of the number of qbits over the years .
Simple theoretical representation
This is one of the inconvenience ( in the making ) of quantum computers , it is simple in theory but hard to apply.
New materials are being discovered all the time which may improve the operation of the qubits further - in the same way that the semiconductor industry is progressing now.

A qubit (or QUantum BIT) is similar in concept to a standard 'bit' - it is a
memory element. It can hold not only the states '0' and '1' but a linear
superposition of both states, α|0> +β |1>
In physicicts terms, we denote the states |0> and |1> respectively.
A quantum computer is a computer design which uses the principles
of quantum physics in order to boost the computational power beyond
what is attainable by a traditional computer.
These new generation computers represent the new paradigm for
computing devices: computers whose components are individual
quantum systems, and in which the properties of quantum mechanics
are exploited to make possible new algorithms and new ways of
DWAVE is a quantum computing company founded in 1999 in Canada ,in
order to achieve its goal by making things happen now and avoid waiting 20
years to apply quantum computers in an efficient way …so It gathered a
dedicated team of scientists and engineers to do researches. It came up with
the quantum machine that blew the world with its unbelievable capacity.
The estimated cost of the commercialized DWAVE quantum computer is
about $10,000,000 .
It all began back to a 1959 speech by Richard Feynman , in which Richard spoke
about the effects of miniaturization , including the idea of creating more
powerful computers based on the quantum effects.
Before being able to realize this theory , scientists and engineers worked hard to
fully develop a the technology of traditional computers . For this reason , over
the years there was a little progress in the idea of bringing Feynman’s theory into
The idea of quantum computing was first introduced by Yuri Manin in
1980 and Richard Feynman in 1982.
Therefore , companies like GOOGLE , NASA and DWAVE have come
together in order to build the world’s first quantum computer .
Quantum computers were made, based on the quantum theory ,
covering superposition* , entanglement* , and tunneling.
In fact , current computers were based on a binary system , where basically
everything is either 0 or 1
With quantum computers , the base level can be 0 or 1 or both at the
So , in addition to the standard binary bits , the computer also now uses
quantum theory in order to create a qbit which can be both 1 or 0 or both
at the same time.

“Quantum computers have the potential to solve problems that would take
a classical computer longer than the age of the universe “ – Professor David
In fact, the ability of quantum to solve problems thousands of times faster
than traditional computers is attracting attention from some of the world's
largest and most powerful institutions.
Theory continues in advance , many researchers are looking for
various algorithms and communication protocols to exploit the
properties of quantum systems.
Moreover, quantum computers can also be used to efficiently simulate other quantum systems.
Perhaps some day quantum computers will be used to design the next generation of classical
Qubits are interesting both from a physicist and an engineer's point of view and are definitely
worth investigating further.
With enough qubits, it is possible to run quantum computations, which can outperform current
technology in some specific cases, and may provide other means of replacing (or enhancing)
The fabrication technology is improving all the time and soon qubits will be routinely
implemented into superconducting circuits.
In fact ,DWAVE are working more and more to commercialize their product and make it suitable
for everyone’s use.
Finally, no one knows what DWAVE will come up in the coming years , but definitely it is going to
be a quantum pc filled with huge numbers of bits overpassing the 512 qbit superconducting
