The IBM Q Network provides its organizations with quantum expertise and resources, quantum software and developer tools, as well as cloud-based access to IBM's most advanced and scalable commercial universal quantum computing systems available. Potential real-world applications of quantum computing can be used to revolutionize the fields of medicine, artificial intelligence, financial markets and online security.

IBM inventors received more than 2,000 Cloud computing and over 1,600 AI patents.

Qubits are only useful for more than 100 microseconds, and while IBM's Q System One is not yet powerful enough at 20-qubits, it will be one of the first commercial ready quantum computers. However, this relative fragility is why you won't be installing an IBM Q System One in your own office - while it's definitely a major step forward, it's a far ways away from being something you can order and have delivered. "This new system is critical in expanding quantum computing beyond the walls of the research lab as we work to develop practical quantum applications for business and science". The casing is important: Qubits lose their quantum computing properties outside of very specific conditions.

Quantum computing rely on a different approach to solving problem, unlike classical computers.

The system is still in its early stages of development but IBM will be putting its Quantum Computation Center to work and join forces with businesses and scientists to explore its practical applications. Bob Sutor, the VP of IBM Q Strategy and Ecosystem.

With the prospect of being the first to reach quantum supremacy, many organizations are focusing on internal efforts as opposed to industrywide collaboration, Jim Clarke, director of quantum hardware at Intel, told CIO Dive in an August interview. The company now works with about 80 universities in the United States, Europe and Asia to explore next-generation energy technologies.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory will use quantum computers along with high-performance supercomputers to benchmark new methods for studying strongly correlated dynamics in quantum materials, chemistry, and nuclear physics.

Classical computation to provide secure cloud access and hybrid execution of quantum algorithms. It's no surprise then, that IBM stresses that this is a first attempt and that the systems are "designed to one day tackle problems that are now seen as too complex and exponential in nature for classical systems to handle".

In an interview with Fortune, IBM vice-president of research, Jeffery Welser said that the Debater, "is capable of understanding how two identical sentences can convey different meanings depending on the context and anticipates a world where computers will better understand human interactions".
