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

11 January 2019

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.

The design of IBM Q System One includes a nine-foot-tall, nine-foot-wide case of half-inch thick borosilicate glass forming a sealed, airtight enclosure that opens effortlessly using "roto-translation", a motor-driven rotation around two displaced axes engineered to simplify the system's maintenance and upgrade process while minimizing downtime - another innovative trait that makes the IBM Q System One suited to reliable commercial use. The Armonk, New York-headquartered company has also announced its plans to open the first IBM Q Quantum Computation Centre in Poughkeepsie later this year to give a boost to its quantum computing business. These national government labs will be part of the broader IBM Q Network with access to IBM Q's commercial systems.

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.

The system was developed alongside the Map Project Office, a United Kingdom industrial and interior design studio and Universal Design Studio and it rests in an air-tight environment that is enclosed by thick borosilicate glass.

"The strategic use of intellectual property has been at the core of IBM's success throughout our 108-year history", IBM Research lab director and vice president of research Jeff Weisler told BGR.

And other Trump campaign officials: ex
Manafort already faces lengthy prison sentences for charges brought by Mueller's office in Virginia and Washington, D.C. But that plea deal fell apart after prosecutors accused him of lying.

Advanced cryogenic engineering ideal for cooling a quantum computing environment. "For example, one of our new partners in the IBM Q Network, ExxonMobil, is exploring more predictive environmental and highly accurate quantum chemistry calculations to enable the discovery of new materials for more efficient carbon capture".

"Data will be the world's most valuable natural resource", IBM CEO Ginni Rometty said on stage at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, where the IBM Q System One was unveiled. This makes the system suitable for commercial use cases, IBM said.

Hybrid execution of quantum algorithms in an isolated, secure environment that is accessible through the cloud. All these are likely to be the areas where the IBM Q System One will be sufficient enough.

IBM has revealed how it wants to bring quantum computing out of the lab and to the masses at CES 2019.

The computer itself is in a nine-by-nine glass cube that maintains it at the exactly correct temperature and other conditions it needs to do its work - a kind of fragility that means that you can't just order one and have it sent; customers will access it via the IBM Cloud.
