Technology giant IBM unveiled the first Q system one quantum computer for commercial use with a 20-qubit system. The invention can be used both for research purposes and for the operation of business applications.
Despite the fact that IBM claims that the invention is the first universal system for quantum computing, it does not have enough power for many commercial purposes, TechCrunch reports. IBM added that this is only the first attempt to create a system for solving complex problems and that it is upgradeable.
In addition, the company has built efficient cooling systems for such massive hardware.
The IBM Q System One is a major step forward in the commercialization of quantum computing. 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.

It is noteworthy that the Map Project Office and the Universal Design Studio, as well as the Goppion company that developed glass caps for the precious regalia of the British royal family and the protective display for the Da Vinci Mona Lisa painting, worked on the design of the invention.
