What is IBM Q?

IBM Q is an industry-first initiative to build commercially available universal quantum computing systems for business and science. Today, IBM has a sophisticated prototype commercial quantum processor that will form the core of the first IBM Q early-access commercial systems for clients. In collaboration with key industry partners, IBM intends to significantly increase the computational capability of future quantum systems and demonstrate computational capabilities beyond today’s classical computing systems.

Tour the IBM quantum computing lab

 

A 360 video of a Quantum Lab at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, N.Y. Inside, IBM scientists are researching and building practical quantum computers. Inspired by nature and the laws of quantum mechanics, IBM believes quantum computing is the future of computing and has the potential to solve problems that are out of reach of today’s classical computers.


 

The future of supercomputers

 

Jerry Chow of IBM’s Watson Research Center researches and builds “qubits,” the building blocks of quantum computing. Chow taps into the strange world of quantum mechanics, where the rules of ordinary reality don't apply. He shares how to harness their mind-boggling potential.
