Quantum computing via the cloud is gaining ground. Numerous institutions have joined the likes of the IBM Q Experience, a quantum cloud computing service. Quantum computing clouds being developed reach back to quantum computers, programmable at your discretion. Albeit the computing devices are nascent, end-results have proven the ability to leverage cloud computing successfully. Oak Ridge National Laboratories researchers have arrived at a known result from the binding of a proton and neutron with the IBM Q environment. Though not without quirks, quantum cloud users must overcome challenges, some of which are qubit connectivity and decoherence related. Read on for a good description of just what the study entailed. Original and viewpoint article links are provided.
