Are Practical Quantum Computers Coming in 2018?

February 5, 2018

John Hawthorne wrote an interesting article on Quantum Computing – you can find it here:




The article also makes a reference to this WIRED article, another good intro to Quantum Computing:

Inside the weird world of quantum computers

WIRED explains why we need quantum computing, how it compares to classical computing and what is holding us back from using it.



A 360 video of the IBM Quantum Lab at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, N.Y. Inside, IBM scientists are researching and building a practical quantum computer, which when built, will be one of the greatest milestones in the history of information technology. Inspired by nature and the laws of quantum mechanics, IBM believes quantum computing is the future of computing and has the potential to solve challenges that are out of reach of today’s classical computers. On May 4, 2016, IBM Research announced that for the first time ever it is making quantum computing available to the public, providing access to a quantum computing platform from any desktop or mobile device via the cloud. Users of the IBM Quantum Experience can create algorithms and run experiments on an IBM quantum processor located in this lab, learn about quantum computing through tutorials and simulations, and get inspired by the possibilities of a quantum computer.

Welcome to the first IBM Q computation center, where the commercial quantum systems used by the IBM Q Network live. IBM Q Network collaborators will work with IBM scientists and engineers to explore potential applications for quantum systems. Grab your headphones and listen to the first IBM Q computation center in an immersive 360 sound experience:
