Abstract: Quantum annealing (QA) is a heuristic that implements adiabatic quantum computing instructions to solve combinatorial optimization problems. In this talk, we will discuss the results of our work on formatting a medical-staff scheduling problem, particular to clinics dedicated to covid-19 cases, to run on the quantum annealing processor available from D-wave Systems.
