Supporting Sherlock Holmes: How to solve an optimization problem using a quantum computer
Quantum computing is a rapidly emerging technology that harnesses the laws of quantum mechanics to solve problems too complex for classical computers. Quantum applications span three general areas: Simulating Quantum Systems, Artificial Intelligence and Optimizations. Starting from the IBM Quantum software and hardware development roadmap a live demo will outline how to solve a combinatorial optimization problem on a quantum computer using IBM’s open-source quantum computing framework called Qiskit. This will be done by an iterative algorithm that runs partly on a classical computer and partly on a quantum device. The new Qiskit Runtime architecture, that executes loops between classical and quantum computation near the quantum device, will be outlined in this context as well.
