"The IBM Q System One is a major step forward in the commercialisation of quantum computing", said Arvind Krishna, Senior Vice President of Hybrid Cloud and Director of IBM Research, in a press statement. "We'll see quantum computing's first impact in the areas of chemistry and science".

IBM has progressed with its quantum computing initiative Q enough to produce a system capable of running outside a research lab, opening possibilities to rent access to it. For example, future applications for quantum computing may include untangling the complexity of molecular and chemical interactions leading to the discovery of new medicines, or finding and developing new materials for automotive application through quantum chemistry.

A year after IBM showed off a 50-qubit quantum computer prototype at CES, the company has returned to the annual electronics show in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a grand announcement. IBM said the Q System One makes it possible to reset qubits in a matter of hours, instead of the days or weeks it normally takes. In addition, the no-cost and publicly available IBM Q Experience now supports more than 100,000 users, who have run more than 6.7 million experiments and published more than 130 third-party research papers. The IBM Q System One ensures that these quantum computers can operate beyond the confines of a research lab. So far, most of these computers haven't gone beyond research labs and sporadic demonstrations. The new system features a 20-qubit processor with improved design for stability and reliability, according to IBM.

ExxonMobil will become the first energy company to join the IBM Q Network. So, it might not be that powerful and more optimizations would be on its way.

Far-right German politician severely beaten in Bremen, suffers head wound
AfD took 10 per cent of the vote in Bremen in the 2017 national election, below its nationwide result of 12.6 per cent. German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier wrote to Magnitz to express his "consternation" over the attack.

In terms of the IBM Q System One's appearance, the computer is defined by a stack of circuit boards and wires, encased in a metal cylinder that sits in a half-inch thick glass case. The company now works with about 80 universities in the United States, Europe and Asia to explore next-generation energy technologies. IBM has, therefore, consolidated all the components of the Q System One into a glass-enclosed, air-tight environment.

For so long, the quantum computer was merely a fantasy but the race to build the world's first quantum computer gave scientists the motivation build the most powerful and advanced computer that puts even the best ones to shame.

The 2019 Consumer Electronics Show is now ongoing in Las Vegas, and United States tech giant IBM has just unveiled its latest creation with the first ever quantum computer designed for commercial use, the IBM Q System One.
