Finally? D-Wave’s 2048-qubit quantum annealer (quantum computer) has successfully simulated a topological phase transition. Successfully producing their results “is a major step toward reducing the need for time-consuming and expensive physical” R&D. The results of the study validate the D-Wave quantum computer; a fully-programmable, accurate simulator, using quantum bits (qubits) to compute results to complex problems.
