Meet IBM Q

IBM Q is an industry-first initiative to build commercially available universal quantum computers for business and science. While technologies like AI can find patterns buried in vast amounts of existing data, quantum computers will deliver solutions to important problems where patterns cannot be found and the number of possibilities that you need to explore to get to the answer are too enormous ever to be processed by classical computers. We invite you join us in exploring what might be possible with this new and vastly different approach to computing.

Two new processors

IBM Q has successfully built and tested two of its most powerful universal quantum computing processors to date: 16 qubits for public use and a 17 qubit prototype commercial processor.

IBM Q has successfully built and tested two of its most powerful universal quantum computing processors. The first has 16 qubits and is for public use by developers, researchers, and programmers via the IBM Cloud at no cost. The second is the first prototype commercial processor. With 17 qubits, and incorporating materials, devices, and architecture innovations, this processor is the most powerful built by IBM to date. All of this sophisticated engineering makes it at least twice as powerful as the free version in the cloud.
