Quantum Leap

IBM is ramping up its investments in quantum computing.

Today it announced the opening of the IBM Quantum Computation Center in New York state, one which expands the company’s fleet of quantum computing systems for commercial and research activity that exist beyond the confines of experimental lab environments.

To date, the global IBM Quantum user community has run more than 14 million experiments on IBM’s quantum computers through the cloud, and published more than 200 scientific papers. To meet growing demand for quantum hardware access, ten quantum computing systems are now online through IBM’s Quantum Computation Center, composed of five 20-qubit systems, one 14-qubit system, and four 5-qubit systems.

Within a month, IBM’s commercially available quantum fleet will grow to 14 systems, including a new 53-qubit quantum computer, the single largest universal quantum system made available for external access in the industry, to date.

Advances in quantum computing could open the door to future scientific discoveries such as new medicines and materials, vast improvements in the optimization of supply chains, and new ways to model financial data to make better investments.
