D-Wave’s mission is to unlock the power of quantum computing for the world. In this seminar, we will introduce you to D-Wave’s quantum computers and suite of software tools that are available through the Leap cloud platform. Starting with a high-level overview of quantum annealing, we’ll explore how we can interact with the hardware using the Ocean Software Development Kit, a Python programming package. To conclude we’ll showcase some live demos and real-world customer applications.
Dr. Victoria Horan Goliber, Senior Technical Analyst, joined the sales team at D-Wave Systems in 2018. In her current role, Dr. Goliber works with teams around the world to bring quantum annealing to a variety of groups through seminars, workshops, and conferences. She received her Ph.D. in Discrete Mathematics from Arizona State University through the U.S. Department of Defense Science, Mathematics, and Research for Transformation (SMART) Scholarship Program, and more recently completed a MS degree in Computer Science with a specialization in machine learning through Georgia Institute of Technology. Her doctoral research bridged both mathematics and Computer Science with a focus on de Bruijn sequences and Gray codes for combinatorial objects. After graduation, Dr. Goliber worked as a Senior Mathematician with the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory’s Information Directorate, along with a special assignment as the Executive Officer to the Director.
