Scalable Quantum Systems

At the heart of IBM quantum systems is the transmon qubit. Successive generations of IBM Quantum processors have demonstrated the potential of superconducting transmon qubits as the basis for electrically controlled solid-state quantum computers. With a scalable approach to chip architecture and research into error correction and mitigation, IBM Quantum is at the forefront of developing systems with sufficient quantum volume to demonstrate advantage in real world applications.

Several IBM quantum devices are available to the public through our quantum cloud services. Users can access devices for free through the IBM Quantum Experience or Qiskit, and more advanced quantum systems are available to our clients in the IBM Quantum Network.

Machine Learning

Using quantum systems to train and run machine learning algorithms could allow us to solve complex problems more quickly, potentially improving applications like disease diagnosis, fraud detection, and efficient energy management.

Materials

Simulating quantum mechanical systems is a promising early application of quantum computing. This technique can be applied to fields such as chemistry, materials science, and high energy physics.

Optimization

Quantum computers may potentially find the best solution among varying weighted options more efficiently than classical computers, and could provide advantage in areas such as portfolio optimization, risk analysis, and Monte-Carlo-like applications.

Finance

In the financial service sector, many computationally intensive problems exist, such as optimization of financial portfolios or the risk analysis of such portfolios. For some of these problems, quantum computing may have the potential to achieve a significant advantage compared to classical computing.
