IBM Unveils the World’s First Commercial Quantum Computer

One of the patents filed from India went to IBM inventors Shivali Agarwal Gaargi B Dasgupta Shripad J Nadgowda and Tapan K Nayak
Quantum computers have the potential to perform seemingly-impossible computing tasks, but they're still in their very early stages.
"The advancement of new breakthroughs, coupled with the creative application of current technologies available to us from outside the energy sector, will be critical in addressing the dual challenge of producing energy to fuel economies and meeting consumers' needs while managing the risks of climate change", Swarup said.
IBM isn't aiming to bring the Q System One to the masses. Developers have also downloaded Qiskit, a full-stack, open-source quantum software development kit, more than 140,000 times to create and run quantum computing programs.
No announcement yet on DRC election results
On Tuesday, Fayulu and six other presidential candidates issued a statement saying that the results "cannot be negotiated". He also told the Belgian newspaper Le Soir that Kabila could be honoured for ushering in a peaceful transition.
Other providers, such as D-Wave International, are offering specialized quantum computers that harness quantum annealing for optimization problems, from traffic optimization in China to election modeling. Quantum computing could more effectively solve large systems of linear equations, which will accelerate the development of more realistic simulations. However, quantum computers are much more powerful.
IBM goes on to explain in a company blog post today that the work in these and other areas often begins long before there is any associated practical enterprise uses for the technology the company is probing. The machine has been designed by a group of industrial designers, architects, and manufacturers alongside IBM Research scientists and system engineers.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory's IBM Q Hub, announced in 2017, now includes member labs: Argonne National Laboratory, Fermilab, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
Adam Gase Hired As Jets Head Coach
Rhule is a native New Yorker, who spent one season as an assistant offensive line coach with the New York Giants in 2012. Gase went 23-25 during his three seasons as head coach of the Dolphins, beating the Jets in five of their six meetings.
IBM managed to shed all that and build a compact lovely piece-of-art that rests inside a 9-foot tall, 9-foot wide half-inch borosilicate glass case.
He also mentioned some real, practical applications of the system. The organizations that partner with IBM will get access to its quantum software and cloud-based quantum computing systems.
If you want to buy yourself a quantum computer, you'll have to work with IBM, though. It's no surprise then, that IBM stresses that this is a first attempt and that the systems are "designed to one day tackle problems that are now seen as too complex and exponential in nature for classical systems to handle".
IBM is locked in a race with Alphabet Inc.'s Google, Microsoft Corp. and others in building machines that businesses can use to solve hard real-world problems now beyond the reach of the most powerful conventional supercomputers.
The new IBM Q System One platform is its first integrated universal quantum computing platform and its "most advanced ever", meaning the technology is finally able to break free from the laboratory to help a wider range of organisations than ever before.
Rare penny found in 1947 could be worth more than $1 million
The young coin collector made a decision to keep the cent in his collection for more than 70 years, until he died in September. One penny, in particular, is now dubbed the " most famous error coin" by Heritage Auctions, who is auctioning the penny.
Adam Gase to be new Jets head coach
The team hired the former Miami Dolphins coach as their new head coach Wednesday night, WFAN's Brian Costello confirmed. National Football League head coaching vacancies have started to get filled up, but Mike McCarthy remains on the market.
R. Kelly under Investigation following Lifetime's Documentary
Angelo Clary believes that his daughter moved in with Kelly when she was 18 and the family hasn't heard from her since 2016. Greenberg on Wednesday told WGN-TV that the allegations are "made up". "No one has ever seen any evidence of it", he said.
First partial solar eclipse of 2019 to be observed today
Unfortunately, according to the Pakistan Meteorological Department, the solar eclipse will not be visible in Pakistan. Scientists say that the changes in the colour are due to refraction phenomenon and nothing related to the apocalypse.
