With a quantum computer built of just 50 qubits, none of today’s TOP500 supercomputers could successfully emulate it.
For those who are unfamiliar, a classical computer makes use of bits to process information, where each bit represents either a one or a zero. In contrast, a qubit can represent a one, a zero, or both at once, which is known as superposition.
According to IBM, the major challenges include creating qubits of high quality and packaging them together in a scalable way, so they can perform complex calculations in a controllable way.
However, IBM scientists have built a quantum processor that users can access via the IBM Cloud onto any desktop or mobile device.
One can observe that, the cloud-enabled quantum computing platform, called IBM Quantum Experience, will allow use…
