Christoph Roch: “Introduction to Quantum Annealing and Annealer-based Optimization”
In a lecture of about 60 minutes the basics of Quantum Annealing are presented. A consistent scenario is used to explain how optimization problems can be solved by a quantum annealer. In particular, the coding of the problem into a binary quadratic model is explained and a demo shows how this model has to be prepared for processing on the D-Wave Quantum Annealer in order to be executed.
