IBM has announced that it will soon build a 53-qubit quantum computer, the largest universal quantum computer available for external use yet.
As TechCrunch reports, the new machine will be a part of IBM's new Quantum Computation Center in New York State, which is essentially a data centre for the company's quantum machines. The centre will feature five 20-qubit machines with the number growing to 14 within the next month.
The new 53-qubit quantum computer introduces new techniques for launching more reliable systems for cloud deployments and features compact custom electronics. The new system is scheduled to go online in mid-October.
