IBM will provide access to 20-kunitomo quantum computer via the cloud (6 photos + video)
According to IBM, up to the end of the year they plan to open access to a quantum computer performance in the twenty-qubit, using the “cloud” Quantum Experience.
Its practical application is still limited due to the technical features of such systems: to keep a certain quantum position is obtained within ninety microseconds. In this area is certainly a breakthrough, but for everyday tasks too little. But computers can provide invaluable assistance when simulating chemical interactions at the subatomic level and other complex operations. Now through a cloud service clients of IBM available a quantum system on a 7 qubit. Their capabilities already used by more than 60 thousand participants to spend about 1.7 million experiments. Some studies eventually formed the basis of 35 scientific works.
Moreover, corporations are assured that they are working on launching a quantum computer, the size of which is 50 cubits. IBM will continue to work in this direction with the aim of commercialization of the project. Using quantum processors become available solution to the problems created by unsustainable now computers.
Experts believe that the direction of quantum computing is quite promising. But need additional development and research. It is particularly important to solve the issue of cooling required to maintain the qubits in a stable condition. In addition to your IBM quantum computing systems are developing such IT-giants as Microsoft, Google and Intel.
