The problem is, with blurry vision squares look round. Allow me to build you bifocals: Analog and digital computing refer to both a process and an architecture. Quantum refers only to an architecture and not a 'process'. There is no quantum 'way' to compute. Annealing is a process of finding local minima by maintaining coherence through the spectral gap, terminating the transverse field and allowing the adiabatic process to equalize. There is nothing inherently 'quantum' about it, in fact the problem with DWave was that it could be simulated on a classical computer and that simulation was faster. The goal is a true digital quantum gate, not a 'quantum' way of computing, whatever that is. Its true that the qubits (J-junction SQUIDS) are coupled to traditional A/D converters for final processing, as we do taking analog reading to digital, but annealing is an analog process.
I'd love to look at your analog AI, but you are a little thin on references or links.
