Published in Supercomputing/Calculations.
It is Germany’s first quantum computer, and it is capable of bending the laws of physics and computing in order to work. IBM hopes to have a quantum computer that is 37 times faster in two years.
IBM unveiled one of Europe’s most powerful quantum computers on Tuesday, during an event at its German headquarters.
IBM said the Q System One was “Europe’s most powerful quantum computer in the industrial context.”
The quantum computer is to be housed in Ehningen, which is about 20 kilometers (12 miles) southwest of Stuttgart. It will be operated by Germany’s Fraunhofer research institute. It is the company’s first quantum computer in use outside of the US.
