IBM Unveils Groundbreaking Quantum Computing System

Share this post:

IBM Q System One enables universal approximate superconducting quantum computers to operate outside the research lab for the first time. It’s a major step forward in the commercialization of quantum computing, which could one day enable breakthroughs in such areas as materials and drug discovery, financial services, and artificial intelligence.

Watch the video below to gain some insights on the world’s first integrated Quantum Computing System:

Quantum computers and IBM Q System One

Quantum computers are a radically different kind of computer based on the laws of quantum mechanics. IBM Q is building quantum computers with the potential to solve some problems beyond the reach of classical computers in such areas as financial services, pharmaceuticals and artificial intelligence. People today can access real quantum computers through the cloud to conduct research and explore new problems.

Today’s quantum computers include thousands of parts that work together to harness qubits to perform quantum computations. Qubits themselves are incredibly powerful, yet delicate. They quickly lose their special quantum properties, typically within 100 microseconds (for state-of-the-art superconducting qubits), due in part to electromagnetic environment, vibrations, and temperature fluctuations.

To make quantum computers more reliable and stable, IBM Q designed and built the world’s first integrated quantum computing system for commercial use: IBM Q System One.

IBM Q System One enables universal approximate superconducting quantum computers to operate beyond the confines of the research lab for the first time.

This new innovation has gathered major media attention for this groundbreaking quantum computing system. Watch the video below, from Fortune to understand why this quantum computing system is groundbreaking:
