(PoughkeepskiJournal) IBM plans to open its Poughkeepsie quantum computing facility in 2019. IBM has not indicated how much money it’s investing in Poughkeepsie or when the facility could be complete. At the planned Computation Center, researchers will work with “some of the world’s most advanced cloud-based quantum computing systems,” according to IBM announcements.
The center will be available to the IBM Q network, a group that includes business leaders like Fortune 500 companies, startups and academic institutions.
“The IBM Q System One is a major step forward in the commercialization of quantum computing,” Director of IBM Research Arvind Krishna said in a press release announcing the new system and Poughkeepsie facility. “This new system is critical in expanding quantum computing beyond the walls of the research lab as we work to develop practical quantum applications for business and science.”
