The website has been extensively renewed.
We have organized the site's contents into three categories: "About," "Learn," and "Play" so that you can graduate from the introductory stage to the stage involved in solving assignments.
In addition, new content has been added, including use cases, mathematics for annealing machines, and a diagnostic tool to determine the compatibility of an annealing machine with your problem.

Launched the cloud computing service "Annealing Cloud Web" using an annealing machine specialized for combinatorial optimization problem.

Welcome to Annealing Cloud Web

Annealing Cloud Web is operated by "Integrated Research and Development of Quantum Computation and Ising Computation Systems" project using the results of "Research and Development of Innovative Annealing Machines for Combinatorial Optimization" conducted by NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization).
By allowing users to experience the annealing machine (Ising model type device), we aim to expand the user base, accelerate the development of related peripheral technologies (such as software), and improve the performance of the annealing machine itself.

ABOUT

In the ”About” section, you can read about an overview of the NEDO project that sponsors this site, information on the technology, and specifications of CMOS annealing from its birth to the current state-of-the-art prototypes, and a collection of links to publications and other resources.


Learn

In the "Learn" section, you will learn about annealing and Ising models, their mathematical background, and their use cases.
Also, a diagnostic tool is available to determine if annealing can help solve your problem.


Play

In the "Play" section, you can play with demo applications and Web APIs running on a real CMOS annealing machine (ASIC version). The Ising Editor is a visualization of the same loosely coupled Ising model as the real machine, allowing you to see what the process looks like on the Ising model and the numerical output values.
With the free Web API, you can try to solve the problem yourself.
