The company is looking to target businesses that want to make the most of super-fast computing technology, but that can't afford the cost of outright purchase of such hardware. This new processor will be made available in the next generation IBM Q systems.
And IBM has said that the IBM Q systems shortly available online to clients will have a 20 qubit processor, and will feature "improvements in superconducting qubit design, connectivity and packaging".
According to IBM, customers will be able to access quantum algorithms in around 90 micro-seconds. Coherence times have been increased, too. But Big Blue explained it has also built a fully-operational prototype 50-qubit processor, and while it's not ready for release yet, IBM said it will integrate it into the next generation of IBM Q systems. It'll be made available next year.
Rescuers rush to save 10 whales stranded on Indonesian beach
Though unusual, whale beachings have been seen in other parts of Indonesia, a vast archipelago of over 17,000 islands. The nine whales were discovered in Ujung Kareng beach of Aceh Besar district at about 9:30 a.m.
These upgrades represent rapid advances in quantum hardware as IBM continues to drive progress across the entire quantum computing technology stack, with focus on systems, software, applications and enablement. He added, "In May of this year, we announced the launch of IBM Q, the industry's first initiative to build commercially available universal quantum computers for business and science".
Quantum computing relies on quantum-mechanical theories, such as superposition and entanglement, to transform the management of datasets. "The ability to reliably operate several working quantum systems and putting them online was not possible just a few years ago".
Over the next 12 months, IBM's engineers and data scientists will continue developing its devices, including upping quality of qubits, circuit connectivity, and reducing error rates of operations to run more advanced quantum algorithms.
Notre Dame Takes Down Mount Saint Mary's at Home Opener
Notre Dame remains ideal in home-openers under Glenn and Stacey Murphy Head Men's Basketball Coach Mike Brey , improving to 18-0. The Mountaineers even took a 23-20 lead with 6:23 remaining before Notre Dame ripped off an 11-0 run to go up 31-23.
"I use the IBM Q experience and QISKit as an integral part of my classroom teaching on quantum computing, and I can not emphasize enough how important it is".
"In prior years, the course was interesting theoretically, but felt like it described some far-off future. Now, our enrollments are skyrocketing, drawing excitement from top students from a very wide range of disciplines".
"Simulators don't now capture the nuances of the actual quantum hardware platforms, and nothing is more convincing for a proof-of-concept than results obtained from an actual quantum processor".
