I would like to follow up on this question (What is Entropy Quantum Computing?).
Company Quantum Computing Inc. announced that they made their quantum computer aimed at solving binary optimization problems available to public. They claimed that the computer uses what they call entropy quantum computing:
Natural quantum states interact freely, influencing and impacting each other as they evolve and change. This natural interaction significantly impacts the accuracy and scale of first generation NISQ computers. The expense of hyper-cooled, vacuum environments doesn't eliminate loss of information, significant errors and limited scaleQCI's Entropy Quantum Computer, Dirac, harnesses the true fundamentals of quantum physics to overcome these limitations. It operates on open quantum systems, carefully coupling a quantum system to an engineered environment, so that its quantum state is collapsed to represent a problem’s desirable solution.
I understand that they somehow program an engineered environment to represent an optimization task and then evolve a quantum state to the ground state of the environment. This seems similar to quantum annealers principle. However, how the noise is reduced with help of the engineered environment is a little bit opaque.
I also found this description of the computer principle of function:
The company indicates the devices uses backaction with the environment to evolve the quantum system into a coherence-free sub-space.
It sounds to me like Maxwell's demon or Perpetuum mobile - they use noise of the surrouding environment to reduce noise in the quantum computer.
Moreover, I find out that the computer somehow exploits photonic technology. So, it seems to me that the entropy quantum computing is in fact photonic-based quantum annealing. Does it make sense?
I could not find any paper on the entropy quantum computing, the only relevant literature is question on this site I linked above. Any link to paper(s) would be highly appreciated.
