First 1QBit Patent

October, 2013

In early October, 1QBit filed a provisional patent for our Integer Optimization Toolbox, an approach to the problem of minimization of a low-degree polynomial over an integer lattice that can, in theory, be used for arbitrarily large polynomials with a large enough quantum annealing oracle. You can read an explanation of how it works in our Research Section.
