"Quantum computing is of considerable value in areas such as finance, security and drug discovery", stated MDR's CEO Yuichiro Minato. "However, to use quantum computing effectively, suitable mathematical models need to be developed. MDR has developed and provides the 'Wildcat' SDK, which is used to perform quantum simulations, particularly for quantum annealing. D-Wave's quantum computers are based on quantum annealing and will thus enable MDR to explore our algorithms using real hardware. One of our objectives is to build demonstrations of applications for quantum machine learning, including deep learning, and powerful tools for finance, automotive and drug discovery."
"Combining MDR's expertise in developing tools and applications with D-Wave's expertise in quantum computing will benefit Japanese organisations who want to understand how this advanced technology will provide value to their business", stated Bo Ewald, president D-Wave International. "We are pleased to be collaborating with MDR on this effort to provide new tools that will help advance the state quantum computing."
