On Tuesday, December 8, IBM introduced the IBM System Q One — the world’s first quantum computer designed for commercial use, writes Business Insider.
Earlier quantum computers were available only to research laboratories. Microsoft, Google, IBM, and many others were competing to bring to market the first commercial quantum computer.
Quantum computing is considered one of the most promising technologies at an early stage. This is because quantum computers can process exponentially more data and is able to completely transform the entire industry. It is believed that this technology will allow companies to model complex data, such as investments and risk.
“Data will become a valuable natural resource in the world,” said CEO of IBM Ginny, Rometty on stage at the consumer electronics show in Las Vegas, where he was introduced by IBM Q System One.
However, the computer will not be able to enjoy in the office. The device itself is a 9-foot glass cube with a length of 9 feet, which constantly maintains the exact temperature and conditions required for the performance of its work. Customers will only have remote access through the IBM Cloud.
Prior to this, IBM announced the creation of the most powerful supercomputer in the world. The company’s specialists managed to create a prototype of the processor 50 quantum bits.
Earlier in the CB “South” has launched the most powerful computer in Ukraine.
Britain launched the world’s largest neuromorphic supercomputer, designed according to the principle of the human brain and has a processor with one million cores.
