Research That Pushes Computing Boundaries

When basic research presses against boundaries of existing bodies of knowledge, new multi-disciplinary fields of study and breakthrough applications can arise as a result. That appears to be happening in an area of quantum computing associated with the Coherent Ising Machine (CIM). While it takes an expert to follow this research in detail, business leaders and the broader public can applaud this development and, anticipating further progress, begin to identify examples of the highly complex combinatorial optimization problems that CIMs are designed to address, but whose potentially beneficial solutions to date have been out of reach.
