IBM Creates New Record With 9,100 US Patents In 2018

"The IBM Q System One is a major step forward in the commercialisation of quantum computing", said Arvind Krishna, Senior Vice President of Hybrid Cloud and Director of IBM Research, in a press statement. Potential real-world applications of quantum computing can be used to revolutionize the fields of medicine, artificial intelligence, financial markets and online security. According to IBM, the plan is to make the hardware accessible via the cloud to let partners experiment with quantum algorithms. It's a cryogenically cooled, nine-foot-tall and nine-foot-wide cube that tackles some of the practical challenges involved in operating a quantum computer.

IBM has used CES 2019 to launch what it claims is the world's first commercial quantum computing system, developed with United Kingdom design studios Map Project Office and Universal Design Studio.

It would be worth mentioning here the IBM Q System is the first practical attempt towards realizing a more powerful quantum computer that we might have previously in vision.

Back in 2017, IBM broke new ground when it announced it's prototype commercial 17-qubit processor, forming the base for its IBM Q early-access systems.

Previously, quantum computers have only been confined to research labs - Microsoft, Google, IBM, and lots of others have been racing to bring a viable quantum computer to market.

"These organizations will work directly with IBM scientists, engineers and consultants to explore quantum computing for specific industries".

Masked Thugs Beat Up AfD Lawmaker in Suspected Politically-Motivated Attack
Elsewhere, party offices have been targeted by vandals in the eastern state of Saxony, Deutsche Welle noted. Last week an AfD office in the eastern town of Döbeln was damaged by an explosion.

The 20-qubit Q System One sits in a glass-enclosed, air-tight environment and is described by the company as "the world's first integrated universal approximate quantum computing system designed for scientific and commercial use".

The Q System One communicates with the outside world through classical computing equipment that runs alongside the qubits.

ExxonMobil's partnership with IBM expands the company's collaborative efforts with other companies and academic institutions that are focused on developing an array of new energy technologies, improving energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

IBM managed to shed all that and build a compact handsome piece-of-art that rests inside a 9-foot tall, 9-foot wide half-inch borosilicate glass case. Qubits in this configuration interact in counterintuitive ways that theoretically make it possible to process data much faster than traditional computers.

Fermilab will use quantum computers for machine learning to classify objects in large cosmology survey applications, as well as optimization techniques to better understand the results of hadron collisions, and quantum simulation to research the potential of studying neutrino-nucleon cross-sections.
