Will Portfolio Optimization Prove Quantum Advantage This Year?

Finding a specific use case that proves quantum advantage will radically kickstart the quantum computing industry. While universal gate-based quantum computers with error correction are a few years away, annealers – quantum systems from D-Wave – are proving excellent at specific types of problems today, especially in a hybrid approach aided by classical computers. Just how excellent are these systems? We might finally have an example of portfolio optimization that provides a thousandfold boost in speed.

In a recent episode of The Post-Quantum World, host Konstantinos Karagiannis chats with Sam Mugel from Multiverse Computing about exactly such use case. For more on quantum computing use cases, check this podcast.
