Given the rich heritage Canadian and Japanese scientists have in quantum annealing, the Embassy of Canada in Japan and the Government of the Province of British Columbia have announced a Scientific and Cultural Exchange Meeting on the topic of “Quantum Computing via Quantum Annealing”. The meeting is designed to foster closer ties between Canada and Japan in the interest of exploring the application of quantum annealing to challenging computational problems and to stimulate future developments of this exciting technology. There will be presentations by senior Canadian and Japanese government officials, representatives from Canadian companies including the CEO of D-Wave Systems and the President of 1QBit, as well as academics from Canadian and Japanese institutions with an interest in quantum computing.
