ExxonMobil, IBM Partner on Quantum Computing

"The IBM Q System One is a major step forward in the commercialization of quantum computing", said Senior Vice President of Hybrid Cloud and director of IBM Research, Arvind Krishna. The IBM system has its own Quantum firmware that will manage the system health and enable system upgrades without downtime. This is a historical step in the field of quantum computing, considering the fact that quantum computers haven't left the confines of a research lab.

IBM unveiled at CES 2019 the Q System One, the company's newest quantum computer which everyone says that it is a work of art in both functionality as well as looks. Firmware was created to manage the system's health and allow upgrades to be made with no downtime, and classical computation is enabled so quantum algorithms can be accessed via the cloud and executed in a hybrid fashion.

The company also announced plans to open its first Q Quantum Computation Center for commercial clients in Poughkeepsie, New York in 2019.

The visual aspect of the System One was envisioned by Map Project Office, an industrial design company that works with Honda and by Universal Design Studio, an interior design and architecture company based in London.

One of the challenges of quantum computing is to continuously maintain the quality of qubits used to perform quantum computations, which is what IBM Q System One is specifically designed for.

This new center will house some of the world's most advanced cloud-based quantum computing systems which will be accessible to members of the IBM Q Network.

This centre will expand the capabilities of IBM's Q Network commercial quantum computing program.

The company provided a description of the IBM Q System One, which include a nine-foot-tall, nine-foot-wide case of half-inch thick borosilicate glass forming a sealed, airtight enclosure that opens effortlessly using "roto-translation", a motor-driven rotation around two displaced axes engineered to simplify the system's maintenance and upgrade process while minimizing downtime, which is what IBM says is "another innovative trait that makes the IBM Q System One suited to reliable commercial use". The cube is also reinforced with a series of independent aluminum and stainless steel frames that ensure structural integrity while reducing vibration and other interference. But the systems company created history at the CES 2019 floor on January 8, 2019.

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 IT giant also sees future where it will be selling such systems in the form of renting access to the hardware over the internet instead of shipping the quantum computer itself.

As part of the agreement, ExxonMobil becomes the first energy company to join the IBM Q Network, a worldwide community of Fortune 500 companies, startups, academic institutions and national research labs working to advance quantum computing and explore practical applications for science and business.
