Measuring Quantum Computer Power With IBM Quantum Volume Metric

If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it. IBM created the Quantum Volume metric to measure the power of quantum computers. Quantum Computers have the potential to be vastly more powerful than regular computers. IBM created a Quantum Volume Metric to integrate all of the factors that effect the processing capability of quantum computers. …

IBM proves a quantum computing advantage over classical

IBM scientists have mathematically proven that there are certain problems that require only a fixed circuit depth when done on a quantum computer no matter how the number of inputs increase. On a classical computer, these same problems require the circuit depth to grow larger. The proof is that there will be problems that can …
