IBM Quantum Computer is Now Available Through IBM Cloud

#artificialintelligence

IBM Research announced today that for the first time ever it is making quantum computing available to anyone to access and run experiments on IBM's quantum processor. IBM scientists have built a quantum processor that users can access through a first-of-a-kind quantum computing platform delivered via the IBM Cloud onto any desktop or mobile device. IBM believes quantum computing is the future of computing and has the potential to solve certain problems that are impossible to solve on today's supercomputers. The cloud-enabled quantum computing platform, called IBM Quantum Experience, will allow users to run algorithms and experiments on IBM's quantum processor, work with the individual quantum bits (qubits), and explore tutorials and simulations of what might be possible with quantum computing. The quantum processor is composed of five superconducting qubits and is housed at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in New York.


IBM Q's radical 50-qubit quantum computer will push computing to new frontiers

Characters named Q in film and TV have been portrayed as being exceptional. Q in the James Bond movies served up futuristic gadgets, and Q in Star Trek was omnipotent. A new quantum computing program called Q at IBM will be remarkable in its own right. In a few years, IBM plans to create a quantum computer with more than 50 qubits, which should push conventional computers one step closer to the trash heap. IBM Q will deliver paid quantum computing consulting and services to users.

IBM Brings Quantum Computing To Everyone With Cloud Service

International Business Times

IBM is opening up one of the most complex and least understood areas of computing to everyone by launching the first quantum computing service in the cloud, hoping that by giving students, researchers and academics the opportunity to use a quantum computer it will help advance development of the technology. IBM has erected a five qubit quantum computer at its T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York, and using its IBM Cloud service has connected it to the world, giving users a simple and straightforward interface to access the power of a quantum computer from their desktop PC or even their smartphones and tablets. "If you want to understand what a true quantum computer will do for you and how it works, this is the place to do it," Dario Gil, vice president of science and solutions, IBM Research said in a statement. "You won't experience it anywhere else." IBM is just one of many companies and organizations working on the development of quantum computing with Google, NASA, Intel, Microsoft and even the CIA, seeking to build a computer that has the potential to be exponentially faster than today's conventional computers.


IBM Loads Quantum Computing Onto Its Cloud

Forbes - Tech

Quantum computing is still many years away from becoming useful to the world. Programming one of these computers typically requires expertise in quantum physics. Big Blue is taking its quantum computer system out of R&D and offering it up for the first time in a commercial cloud service. Announced on Monday, the new quantum computing service, called IBM Q, will run alongside IBM's other cloud products, such as Watson. IBM Q is intended to help developers solve problems that are not readily addressable with current traditional computers -- problems that are exponential in nature.
