Vesuvius - a 512 Qubit quantum computer

A Vesuvius 512 Qubit chip
D-Wave, the quantum computing company, has developed a 512 Qubit quantum computer.  Codenamed, Vesuvius, D-Wave say it will be  capable of executing a massive number of computations at once, more than 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, which would take millions of years on a standard desktop PC
    D-Wave claim they will be able to use Vesuvius for:

  • Binary classification – Enables the quantum computer to be fed vast amounts of complex input data, including text, images, and videos and label the material.
  • Quantum Unsupervised Feature Learning (QUFL) – Enables the computer to learn on its own, as well as create and optimize its own programs to make itself run more efficiently.
  • Temporal QUFL – Enables the Computer to predict the future based in information it learns through Binary classification and the QUFL feature.
  • Artificial Intelligence via a Quantum Neural Network – Enables the computer to completely reconstruct the human brain's cognitive processes and teach itself how to make better decisions and better predict the future.
Wired has a good article on quantum cloud computing in a recent issue and quantum computing is explained in the final chapter "Digital Consciousness" of the Universal Machine.
