IBM unveils world’s first integrated quantum computing system


More than 50 years of advances in mathematics, materials science and computer science have transformed quantum computing from theory to reality.

Though very much still in the earliest stages of development, it’s thought that quantum computers – theoretically capable of solving certain problems much quicker than any classical computers that use even the best currently known algorithms today – will ultimately replace conventional machines in the future.

Indeed, it’s widely understood that many national governments and military agencies are funding quantum computing research in efforts to develop systems for civilian, business, trade, environmental and national security purposes.
