NASA, Google and the Universities Space Research Association said they will partner with D-Wave in an effort to advance research on AI and machine learning.
The organizations plan to use D-Wave's quantum computing technology at the Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab at NASA's Ames Research Center.
D-Wave said it will supply Ames scientists with its latest systems as they become available over the next seven years.
The organizations say they will work together to find out if quantum computing can further advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
"The new agreement is the largest order in D-Wave's history, and indicative of the importance of quantum computing in its evolution toward solving problems that are difficult for even the largest supercomputers," said D-Wave CEO Vern Brownell.
The companies say they hope to form the foundation for AI systems so that they can potentially become immediately applicable if and when quantum computing becomes a realistic option.
The partner organizations have worked with D-Wave since 2013 on problems including Web search, speech recognition, planning and scheduling and air-traffic management, according to the press release.
