At the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), IBM unveiled IBM Q System One™ .
A group of international researchers (U.Alvarez-Rodriguez, M.Sanz, L.Lamata & E.Solano) used the IBM quantum computer (available online for free at IBM Quantum Experience) to carry on a research to mimic common stages of life in a controlled virtual environment.
Quantum computing is getting a significant amount of attention these days, especially since IBM put a real 5-qubit machine online in May 2016 IBM Q Experience
Discovering new drugs and materials by simulating on a quantum computer Last year (2017), on September, a team of researchers at IBM have successfully used their quantum computer, IBM Q, to precisely simulate the molecular structure of beryllium hydride (BeH2). It's the most complex molecule ever given the full quantum simulation treatment.Physicists and chemists routinely use computers to simulate how atoms and molecules behave. Such simulations require massive amounts of computing power, because interactions between three or more interacting particles quickly become devilishly complex. But the electrons inside molecules obey the strange laws of quantum mechanics: it’s impossible to simultaneously [...]
