Graphs and networking

Strawberry Fields provides tools for solving graph or network-based problems. Many problems of practical relevance can be stated in terms of a graph. For example, graphs can be used to model financial markets, biological networks, and social networks.

Graphs are composed of a collection of interconnected nodes. One task often carried out is to search for clusters in a graph: regions with a high level of connectivity. These subgraphs may correspond to communities in social networks, correlated assets in a market, or mutually influential proteins in a biological network. Finding these clusters in large graphs can be tough, but photonic quantum computers can help.

Take a look below to see some of the graph-based problems that photonic quantum devices can help solve!
