Quantum computing has been a hot topic in both the industry and academia, but for the most part has remained a theoretical matter. 

D-Wave aims to change this by providing functional (albeit limited) hardware that takes advantage of quantum phenomena in its computations. 

The technology is still highly experimental, and is yet to be applied to real world problems. We implement an algorithm that uses D-Wave to solve the Broadcast problem, and analyze the results.
