IBM 50Q System: An IBM cryostat wired for a 50 qubit system.

Some of the most important technical advances of the 20th century were enabled by decades of fundamental scientific exploration, whose initial purpose was simply to extend human understanding. When Einstein discovered relativity, he had no idea that one day it would be an important part of modern navigation systems. Such is the story of quantum science.

We have come a long way since the earliest days of quantum information theory, when IBM Fellow Charlie Bennett and the other quantum information science pioneers created the foundations that have given rise to a thriving scientific community. Today, this same community has made enough progress that the earliest real systems, which are able to implement theoretical predictions, are being built before our eyes.
