IBM is taking quantum computing out of the lab

IBM's Q System One is the world's first commercial quantum computer

At the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), IBM took things even further, when it unveiled IBM Q System One - "the world's first integrated universal approximate quantum computing system".

This new centre will house some of the world's most advanced cloud-based quantum computing systems, which will be accessible to members of the IBM Q Network, a worldwide community of leading Fortune 500 companies, startups, academic institutions, and national research labs working with IBM to advance quantum computing and explore practical applications for business and science. The Q System One, on the other hand, is a single, tightly integrated system enclosed in an airtight case nine feet (2.7 meters) tall.

"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.

The system contains a fourth-generation 20-qubit machine and boasts a modular and compact design with stability, reliability and continuous commercial in mind.

This gleaming monolith from a sci-fi blockbuster is actually the new IBM Q System One quantum computer that is created to be reliable enough for businesses to use-in the cloud.

This opens using "roto-translation", a motor-driven rotation that makes it simple to maintain and upgrade the machine while minimising downtime, according to IBM.

In terms of the IBM Q System One's appearance, the computer is defined by a stack of circuit boards and wires, encased in a metal cylinder that sits in a half-inch thick glass case.

At the same time, IBM also announced the opening of a commercial Q Quantum Computation Center in Poughkeepsie, New York later this year.
