IBM releases the world's first commercial integrated quantum computing system

on January 8, Eastern time, IBM announced the launch of IBM Q system one at the 2019 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which is the world's first integrated general-purpose approximate quantum computing system designed specifically for scientific and commercial purposes. In addition, IBM also announced plans to set up the first IBM Q quantum computing center in Poughkeepsie, New York, in 2019 to better serve commercial customers

the original intention of IBM Q system is to solve the overly complex problems that are currently considered to be unmanageable by classic systems. The future application of quantum computing may involve finding new ways to simulate financial data, isolating core risk factors worldwide for better investment, or finding the best path across many systems around the world to achieve ultra efficient logistics and optimize delivery

ibm q is designed by IBM scientists, system engineers and industrial designers. It has the characteristics of precision, modularity and compactness, and is optimized for stability, reliability and sustainable commercial use. The emergence of IBM Q system one is also the first time in history, making the general-purpose quasi superconducting quantum computer out of the laboratory

just as a classical computer combines multiple components into an optimized collaborative integration architecture, IBM applies the same method to construct the first integrated general-purpose quantum computing system. IBM Q system one is composed of many custom components, which can be used in the most advanced cloud based quantum computing programs, including:

quantum hardware. Its tensile samples should meet the tensile test requirements of relevant national and industrial standards for different materials. The design goal is to have stable, automatic calibration ability, repeatable and predictable high-quality qubits

low temperature management, providing a continuous low temperature and isolated quantum operating environment

compact high-precision electronic components, which can strictly control a large number of qubits

quantum firmware, which is used to manage system operation and enable system upgrade without user downtime

classic computing provides secure cloud access and classic/quantum hybrid execution mode of quantum algorithms

ibm Q quantum computing center

ibm will open IBM Q quantum computing center in Poughkeepsie, New York later this year to expand the IBM Q network commercial quantum computing program. The previously opened quantum computing center is located in Thomas J. Watson research center in York Town, New York. This table is the experimental requirements of gas springs for various models. The new center will house some of the world's most advanced cloud based quantum computing systems that members of IBM Q network can access. IBM Q network is a global community of Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, academic institutions and national research laboratories. Community members are committed to working with IBM to jointly promote the development of quantum computing and explore applications in business and science

the unique history of Poughkeepsie in the field of computing can be traced back to the 1950s. IBM's first commercial computers, IBM 700 series, and IBM system/360 in the 1960s, have changed the view of enterprises on computer hardware, and thus completely changed the world. Now, Poughkeepsie, as one of the most powerful classic systems in the world, the birthplace of IBM mainframe, is positioned as one of the few centers in the world with the ability to run quantum computing, including technical capabilities, infrastructure and professional knowledge Accumulator: some electro-hydraulic servo universal experimental machines are equipped with accumulators and the ability to access the high availability data center required by high-performance computing systems and quantum computers

ibm Q system one is an important step in the commercialization of quantum computing, said Arvind Krishna, senior vice president of IBM hybrid cloud and President of IBM Research Institute. When we are committed to developing practical quantum applications in business and science, this new system is crucial for expanding quantum computing out of the laboratory

Design of IBM Q system one

IBM has formed a world-class team of industrial designers, architects and manufacturers to design IBM Q system one with scientists and system engineers from IBM Research Institute, including map project office and universal design studio, industrial and interior design studios in the UK, And goppion, a high-end manufacturer of museum display cabinets headquartered in Milan (goppion display cabinets are used in world-renowned art treasures such as the Mona Lisa in the Louvre and crown jewels in the tower of London)

ibm and these partners jointly designed the world's first quantum system, integrating thousands of components into a glass airtight environment built for commercial purposes, which is a milestone in the development of commercial quantum computers

this integrated system aims to solve one of the most challenging problems of quantum computing: continuously maintaining the quality of qubits used to perform quantum computing. Qubits are powerful but fragile. They usually lose their special quantum properties within 100 microseconds (for the most advanced superconducting qubits), partly due to the vibration of interconnection machinery, temperature fluctuations and environmental noise interference caused by electromagnetic waves. How to prevent this interference is one of the reasons why quantum computers and their components need isolation and precision engineering design and manufacturing

the design of IBM Q system one includes a borosilicate glass shell with a height of 22.86 cm (9 feet), a width of 22.86 cm (9 feet) and a thickness of 1.27 cm (half an inch), which forms a sealed air tight shell, which can be opened effortlessly through rotation and Translation. The design of rotating two shift shafts driven by motors can be used to simplify the maintenance and upgrading process of the system, while minimizing downtime, which is also an innovation of IBM Q system one for reliable commercial applications

in addition, a series of independent aluminum and steel unified frames, low-temperature thermostat of decoupling system, control electronic equipment and housing design will help to avoid potential vibration interference, leading to phase jitter and qubit decoherence

the system model of IBM Q system one is displayed at this CES exhibition. Welcome to read the original text for more information

this new system marks the further development of the industry's first cloud based, public programmable IBM Q experience and IBM Q network platform for business and scientific applications. Since May 2016, IBM Q experience, which is free of 2 and the specified friction coefficient fee, has more than 100000 users. Users have run more than 6.7 million experiments on the platform and published more than 130 third-party research papers. Developers also downloaded qiskit, a complete and open-source quantum software development kit, which has created and run quantum computing programs more than 140000 times. Recent additions to IBM Q network include Argonne National Laboratory, CERN, ExxonMobil, Fermilab, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
