Honeywell Delivers the Largest Quantum Volume Yet
(TechRadar) Honeywell has delivered on its promise to release a quantum computer with a quantum volume of 64 after announcing its plans to do so back in March.
When Honeywell first set out to build a quantum computer, the company made creating the highest quality quantum bits or qubits its top priority. It did this by focusing on eliminating errors present within the system on smaller number of qubits and then working to scale up the number of qubits.
Since there were such low errors in Honeywell’s quantum operations, the quantum volume expanded with each new qubit it added to its quantum computer. Quantum volume measures computational ability to indicate the relative complexity of a problem that can be solved by a quantum computer.
Through its partnership with Microsoft’s Azure Quantum, Honeywell will soon be able to offer organizations access to its quantum computer both directly through its interface as well as through the Azure Quantum portal.
