Quantum Takes Flight: Moving from Laboratory Demonstrations to Building Systems

Last year we at IBM declared that in order to achieve quantum advantage within the next decade, we will need to at least double the Quantum Volume of our quantum computing systems every year. What better way to start this first full week of 2020 than by announcing that we have added our fourth data point to our progress road map and achieved a system demonstrating Quantum Volume of 32.

Dealing with errors in quantum computing

Our team at the Thomas J Watson Research Center published results in the paper Implementing a strand of a scalable fault-tolerant quantum computing fabric in Nature Communications (1) about recent experimental steps toward a “surface code” that shows promise for correcting these errors – and bringing fault-tolerant quantum computers a step closer to reality.
