IBM is taking quantum computing out of the lab

IBM's Q System One is the world's first commercial quantum computer

"As we continue to explore practical applications for quantum computing, it's critical we partner with businesses and organizations from a variety of industries and disciplines", said Bob Sutor, vice president, IBM Q Strategy and Ecosystem.

Quantum computers promise to outperform regular machines at certain tasks by exploiting the unusual properties of quantum physics, and the IBM Q utilizes theories of physics to create computing techniques that are far more powerful than current devices.

CES-2019, Tech giant IBM today unveiled their and world's first quantum computing system, this new system is referred to as Q System One.

IBM says that the "world first" 20-qubit system is created to assist commercial and scientific organisations harness the power of quantum computing, highlighting examples such as financial data modelling or optimising global logistics operations.

The Q System One is indeed a major milestone when it comes to quantum computing.

The hardware is contained in a specially designed 9x9 foot glass case built by Goppion, a world-renowned maker of museum glass display cases that is best known for protecting the Mona Lisa in the Louvre. Currently, the biggest problem IBM is working towards is to have a modular and easy-to-upgrade integrated system for quantum computing. The 20-Quibit system by IBM, which is seen as one of the leaders in the field of quantum computing, could one day solve complex problems.

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

In the second half of 2019, IBM will open the IBM Q Quantum Computation Center, located in Poughkeepsie, New York to expand IBM's commercial quantum computing program, which already includes systems at the Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown, New York. While the computer is open to paying customers, developers will access its power from the comfort of their own homes or offices via the IBM Cloud.

Welser also said that Quantum Computing will start seeing a real-world impact in the next few years as scientists learn how to add and control qubits.

Enclosed in a nine-foot-tall, nine-foot-wide glass case that forms an air-tight environment, this sleek computer is IBM's first effort to bring quantum computing to businesses. However, quantum computers are much more powerful.

IBM has banked on quantum as one of its core future technologies, first opening up client access through the cloud a year ago.

Quantum computing is considered one of the most promising early-stage technologies out there today.

ExxonMobil will become the first energy company to join the IBM Q Network.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory's IBM Q Hub, announced in 2017, now includes member labs: Argonne National Laboratory, Fermilab, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
