IBM Unveils Groundbreaking Quantum Computing System

Recommended Posts

Maybe that's why Apple are dragging their feet on the Mac Pro. They are planning a Maq Pro :P

 

That said it's not the first time someone makes a questionable announcement of a quantum computer. D-Wave have done it several times.

Did you actually watch the video? It seems pretty realistic to me, both in acknowledging the efforts it has taken to create a quantum computer as a product, and the challenges that quantum computing still faces. The modern desktop computer would have been nothing without the development of the pocket calculator first.

I saw it and it's an exciting advance. That said I think it's a bit overblown to say that they have a commercially available quantum computer. After all they acknowledge that for now there's nothing you can do with it you can't do with a conventional one. 

 

I think the video was targetted mostly at investors in order to create some buzz. ;)

 

And yes, IBM is one of the very few companies that can eventually pull it off. Not many have Fundamental Physics research laboratories.
