In October, In-Q-Tel, along with Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, invested in D-Wave Systems, the company behind the D-Wave One, described as "the first commercially available quantum computer" (pictured here). The company produces processors in its own fabrication facility and last year created an applications team to apply quantum computing to solving "industry-scale" challenges. The Intelligence Community sees the investment as an opportunity to address "complex problems that tax classical computing architecture," In-Q-Tel said.

Unfortunate article format. I can't read it. That also means that I don't see, or click on your sponsors' ads.
