About IBM Q quantum devices

Quantum computers are rapidly emerging. Pursued for decades in research labs, prototype machines are today getting bigger and more capable. While quantum is still in its infancy, significant progress is being made across the entire quantum computing technology stack. Today, IBM has several real quantum devices and simulators available for use through the cloud. These devices are accessed and used through Qiskit, and open source quantum software development kit, and IBM Q Experience, which offers a virtual interface for coding a quantum computer.
