IBM presents the world’s first commercially available quantum computer at CES. The US group wants to get back to the top in the new, fully networked big data world.
Computers are still reaching their limits today. Much of what drives decisions is still an estimate.The true optimization is only possible with the next generation of computing, quantum computing, where the digital world encounters the world of quantum physics.
The Result Is Already Impressive
An elegant, over two meters high and wide, hermetically sealed housing ; the quantum computer hangs gracefully from the ceiling. A computer more like a work of art, and with which IBM does not in vain bother with the times when the famous supercomputers began to revolutionize the entire IT industry.
There Is Always Technology Somewhere In The Background
That is the message that IBM wants to conve. It starts with every ticket purchase on the Internet and goes all the way to food safety in the supermarket with new blockchain technology that seamlessly traced supply chains. For example, callbacks will be different in the future.
Today, everything has to be cleared from the shelves when a product is contaminated. In the future, a targeted search will be made, according to Walmart. If IBM stores the explosive data as an independent third party, it’s no problem for the industry to share it. The competition only experiences what it needs to know when it comes to action.
Qbit Is The Smallest Unit Of Information In A Quantum Computer
It allows, unlike the bits in a classic computer to execute several million calculations in parallel. But 20 Qbits are far from being able to achieve the performance of today’s supercomputers. But the exhibition makes it clear that this is only the beginning. Now it will be possible for companies and organizations to experiment with quantum computers outside lab environments and develop their own applications.
