IBM Creates New Record With 9,100 US Patents In 2018

Building the IBM Q System One.                  IBM

"The IBM Q System One is a major step forward in the commercialization of quantum computing", swooned Arvind Krishna, senior vice president of Hybrid Cloud and director of IBM Research. Potential real-world applications of quantum computing can be used to revolutionize the fields of medicine, artificial intelligence, financial markets and online security.

What makes the Q System One the most advanced cloud-based quantum computing programs is a long list of custom components that include cryogenic engineering (to keep the computing systems from overheating), quantum firmware (for upgrades and downtime), classical computation for secure cloud access and more. For example, future applications for quantum computing may include untangling the complexity of molecular and chemical interactions leading to the discovery of new medicines, or finding and developing new materials for automotive application through quantum chemistry.

Designed by IBM scientists, systems engineers and industrial designers, IBM Q System One has a "sophisticated, modular and compact design optimised for stability, reliability and continuous commercial use". Namely, that it now has a "quantum computing system" ready for commercial use.

IBM isn't aiming to bring the Q System One to the masses. This means - for the first time ever - universal approximate superconducting quantum computers can operate beyond the confines of the research lab. The quantum computers, on the other hand, can have multiple superpositions of these states and hence, would be able to solve a multitude of problems very quickly.

ExxonMobil will become the first energy company to join the IBM Q Network.

Adam Gase Hired As Jets Head Coach
Quarterback Sam Darnold supported the decision to hire Gase, according to NFL.com's Tom Pelissero . He won 125 regular-season games, 10 playoff games and a Super Bowl between 2006 and 2018.

Named IBM Q System One, IBM says the system is "designed to one day tackle problems that are now seen as too complex and exponential in nature for classical systems in nature".

Other providers, such as D-Wave International, are offering specialized quantum computers that harness quantum annealing for optimization problems, from traffic optimization in China to election modeling.

IBM isn't the only company that's been working on quantum computing, as the technology is still far from ready for mass deployment. These national government labs will be part of the broader IBM Q Network with access to IBM Q's commercial systems.

IBM unveiled the world's first standalone quantum computer - the IBM Q System One - which is an architectural marvel yet powerful enough to leave the best supercomputers in the dust.

IBM is locked in a race with Alphabet Inc.'s Google, Microsoft Corp. and others in building machines that businesses can use to solve hard real-world problems now beyond the reach of the most powerful conventional supercomputers.
