IBM cloud allows public into quantum computing

If you have an experiment or concept that needs testing with highly advanced quantum computing, your time has come!

IBM has just gone public on its new scheme in which anyone can log onto its cloud platform and use a quantum processor to run their work.

The cloud-enabled quantum computing platform, called IBM Quantum Experience, will allow users to run algorithms and experiments on IBM’s quantum processor, work with the individual quantum bits (qubits), and explore tutorials and simulations around what might be possible with quantum computing.

The quantum processor is composed of five superconducting qubits and is housed at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Centre in New York.

New Statesman Tech will be catching up with IBM this week to find out exactly what you need to know about quantum computing – and what you don’t.
