IQ-Extreme: a platform of quantum-inspired optimization

iQ-Xtreme is a platform for solving complex mathematical optimization problems, specially focused on highly non-convex combinatorial optimization. Non-linear combinatorial optimization is generally a NP-hard problem, and solving them more efficiently is one of the promising applications of quantum computing.

D-Wave hardware is specially designed to solve Quadratic Unconstrained Binary Optimization (QUBO) problems, and it is the most mature quantum hardware up to date.

With iQ-Xtreme, the user can solve not only QUBO problems, but other mathematical problems that are more appropriate for practical use cases compared to QUBO formulations.

Problems that can be solved by
IQ-Extreme

  • Quantum-inspired binary simulated annealing: heuristic search similar to quantum annealing (D-Wave).

  • Quantum-inspired integer simulated annealing: heuristic search inspired by quantum annealing, extended to integer variables.

  • Constrained quantum-inspired simulated annealing: heuristic search inspired by quantum annealing, in which search is constrained to a given cardinality subspace.

  • Quantum-inspired pruning algorithm: heuristic based on constrained quantum-inspired simulated annealing.

  • Quantum-inspired permutation simulated annealing: heuristic search inspired by quantum annealing, extended to permutation matrices.
