# D-Wave Quantum Computing

### From Wiki

Many people do not know that Google has built a computer (With D-Wave and NASA) that is decades ahead of it's time.

Here is a video lecture with Geordie Rose of D-Wave Quantum Computing Company which includes theory and pictures of the futuristic D-Wave computer:

Quantum computing studies theoretical computation systems (quantum computers) that make direct use of quantum-mechanical phenomena, such as superposition and entanglement, to perform operations on data. Quantum computers are different from digital computers based on transistors. Whereas digital computers require data to be encoded into binary digits (bits), each of which is always in one of two definite states (0 or 1), quantum computation uses qubits (quantum bits), which can be in superpositions of states. A theoretical model is the quantum Turing machine, also known as the universal quantum computer. Quantum computers share theoretical similarities with non-deterministic and probabilistic computers; one example is the ability to be in more than one state simultaneously. The field of quantum computing was first introduced by Yuri Manin in 1980[2] and Richard Feynman in 1982. A quantum computer with spins as quantum bits was also formulated for use as a quantum spaceâ€“time in 1968.
