Quantum computing is increasingly accessible: IBM


Quantum  computing   is increasingly accessible: IBM

It is common to hear that quantum computing experiments are performed in laboratories with technical specifications that make simulations possible.

However, IBM is planning to bring these systems within reach of all users to drive the advancement of technology. IBM Q System One is a solution for these devices to be used outside of large laboratories.

Thanks to a design and optimization that allows it to be more compact and stable, since it has cryogenic engineering that provides cold temperatures, necessary for the unit on which these systems are based, the qubits, can work, this project will allow, for the first time Once, a quantum computer is used commercially.
The advantage that these types of bits offer compared to those of traditional computers is that they allow obtaining much larger calculations from a high amount of data and information, which will enable experiments with more accurate results and in less time.

"We use quantum principles like superposition. In the case of a bit, we can have information with the values 0 and 1, but with the qubits, we can make combinations between these two values. It's like a sphere where the south pole is 0, and the north pole is 1, and the qubit gives us access to all the data that can be processed between those two poles, ”said Robert Loredo, Quantum's ambassador to IBM.

"At the beginning, we were in the Quantum Foundations phase, where these systems were theorized. We are currently in the Quantum Ready phase, where people can already access through the cloud and start simulating experiments. The goal is to reach the Quantum Advantage phase where we can make calculations that a traditional computer could not do, "Loredo added.
