Quantum-inspired algorithms and the Azure Quantum optimization service | Azure Friday

Delbert Murphy joins Scott Hanselman to show how quantum-inspired algorithms mimic quantum physics to solve difficult optimization problems. Quantum-Inspired optimization (QIO) takes state-of-the-art algorithmic techniques from quantum physics and makes these capabilities available in Azure on conventional hardware, and callable from a Python client. You can use QIO to solve problems with hundreds of thousands of variables, combined into millions of terms, in a few minutes, with this easy-to-consume Azure service.
