IBM 53 Qubit Cloud Accessible Quantum Computer and Nextbigfuture Interviews Bob Sutor, VP – IBM Q Strategy

IBM opened the IBM Quantum Computation Center in New York State. The new center expands the world’s largest fleet of commercial quantum systems existing beyond the confines of experimental lab environments. This includes five 20-qubit systems with a Quantum Volume of 16 – a measure of the power of a quantum computer – demonstrating a new milestone in quality and reproducibility. Within one month, IBM’s commercially available quantum fleet will grow to 14 systems, including a new 53-qubit quantum computer, the single largest universal quantum system made available for external access in the industry.

IBM Built Three of the Top 11 Supercomputers in the World Today

IBM is the only vendor to have multiple systems in the Top 10 of the semi-annual Top500 and Green500 supercomputer lists. This includes the US Dept of Energy’s Summit and Sierra supercomputers, the overall number one and number two most powerful supercomputers in the world, along with the Lassen Supercomputer built for Lawrence Livermore National …
