Germany to Receive IBM Q System One
Europe to Get Its First Quantum Computer
+ An IBM Q System One quantum computer will be installed in an IBM computer center near Stuttgart. The system is scheduled to go into operation in early 2021.
An IBM Q System One quantum computer will be installed in an IBM computer center near Stuttgart. The system is scheduled to go into operation in early 2021.
+ As part of the collaboration, an IBM Q System One quantum computer will be installed in an IBM computer center near Stuttgart. The system is scheduled to go into operation in early 2021 and will be the first of its kind in Europe.
+ Fraunhofer plans to bring together established partners from research and industry under the umbrella of a research infrastructure of Fraunhofer institutes, which will work together in a centrally coordinated national Fraunhofer competence network for quantum computing. The network will initially be represented by competence centers in six German states – Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Rhineland-Palatinate, Berlin, Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia.
+ Currently, more than ten Fraunhofer Institutes are already working on various fields of quantum technology.
+ Under this nationwide Fraunhofer competence network, companies and research institutions will be able to access IBM quantum computers both in Germany and the US. This will start from as early as next month (April 1st, 2020), when quantum computers in the US-based IBM Quantum Computation Center will be available; there are currently 15 systems at this center located in the US state of New York. Under the terms of the agreement, IBM will offer Fraunhofer technical support and assistance in using the IBM quantum systems.
+ IBM System Q One is optimized to ensure the quality, stability, reliability and reproducibility of multi-qubit applications. In 2016, IBM was the first company to make universal quantum computers accessible via the cloud.
+ An active community of more than 200,000 users have run hundreds of billions of executions on real IBM quantum hardware and have published more than 200 research papers based on these experiments. IBM said it is the first company to have commercial clients via the IBM Q Network, a community of more than 100 businesses, start-ups, research labs, education institutions and governments working with IBM to advance quantum computing.
