IBM’s New 53 Qubit Quantum Computer Will Be Accessible Via Cloud

By IQT News posted 19 Sep 2019

(TechnologyReview) IBM’s newest quantum computer, due to launch next month, will boast 53 quantum qubits. The machine will be available for researchers and companies to run applications via the cloud. Google has a 72-qubit device, but it hasn’t let outsiders run programs on it; IBM’s machine, on the other hand, will be accessible via the cloud.
IBM has been promoting quantum computing via the cloud since 2016. To boost those efforts, the firm is opening a new center in New York state to house even more machines. Other companies developing quantum computers, like Rigetti Computing and Canada’s D-Wave, have also launched cloud services.
