It's a major step forward in the commercialization of quantum computing, which could one day enable breakthroughs in such areas as materials and drug discovery, financial services, and artificial intelligence.
The IBM Q System One is a 20-qubit quantum computer that's built for stability.
IBM is enabling universal quantum computers to operate outside the research lab for the first time.
Quantum computers are a radically different kind of computer based on the laws of quantum mechanics. IBM Q is building quantum computers with the potential to solve some problems beyond the reach of classical computers in such areas as financial services, pharmaceuticals and artificial intelligence. People today can access real quantum computers through the cloud to conduct research and explore new problems.
