IBM Q System One is a Commercial Integrated Quantum Computer

Rometty has been trying to steer IBM toward more modern businesses, such as the cloud, quantum computing and artificial intelligence, as she turns the company away from existing hardware, software and services that have been a drag on sales.

Fermilab will use quantum computers for machine learning to classify objects in large cosmology survey applications, as well as optimization techniques to better understand the results of hadron collisions, and quantum simulation to research the potential of studying neutrino-nucleon cross-sections.

The system is still in its early stages of development but IBM will be putting its Quantum Computation Center to work and join forces with businesses and scientists to explore its practical applications.

IBM isn't aiming to bring the Q System One to the masses.

Their design includes a nine-foot-tall, nine-foot-wide case of half-inch thick borosilicate glass forming a sealed, airtight enclosure.

"The IBM Q System One is a major step forward in the commercialisation of quantum computing", said Arvind Krishna, senior vice president of Hybrid Cloud and director of IBM Research.

Outrage over apparent 'segregation' in South Africa school
Some white parents have removed their children from the school because they fear for their safety. They said if the segregation is proved they would be "strongly condemning" it.

IBM has banked on quantum as one of its core future technologies, first opening up client access through the cloud a year ago. "They quickly lose their special quantum properties, typically within 100 microseconds (for state-of-the-art superconducting qubits), due in part to electromagnetic environment, vibrations, and temperature fluctuations", said IBM while explaining the benefits of an integrated quantum computing system.

Quantum computing is all about quantum bits, or qubits, and for processing every single qubit, the machine needs an undistracted environment. The company intends to open a commercial center for quantum computing clients this year in Poughkeepsie, New York.

BIG BLUE IBM has announced the world's first integrated quantum computing system designed for commercial use. Resetting a quantum computer after an upset caused by a power surge or a disgruntled look from a technician is much, much quicker with a device like the Q System One.

Designed by IBM scientists, systems engineers and industrial designers, IBM Q System One has a sophisticated, modular and compact design optimized for stability, reliability and continuous commercial use. Usually, quantum computers are carefully preserved in research labs, where various elements such as reinforced chambers, tanks of liquid helium, cryogenic equipment and hundreds of yards of cabling, the Financial Times reported.

A replica of IBM Q System One will be on display at CES. All these are likely to be the areas where the IBM Q System One will be sufficient enough. But quantum computing is something that could sit alongside the company's cloud and artificial intelligence (AI) developments to give it an edge against the competition.
