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.


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.


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.


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.
