D-Wave to compare Annealing and Gate-Model Quantum Computers

D-Wave offices

D-Wave has just announced a cross-system software tool providing interoperability between quantum annealing and gate-model quantum computers. The open-source plugin allows developers to map quadratic optimization inputs in IBM’s Qiskit format onto D-Wave’s quadratic unconstrained binary optimization (QUBO) format and solve the same input on any quantum system supported in Qiskit. 

The code is available for free as a stand-alone package in GitHub and provides the ability to use, test, solve and compare real applications with both gate-model and annealing quantum computers.
