American tech giant IBM has just unveiled its latest creation with the first ever quantum computer designed for commercial use.
Quantum computers promise to outperform regular machines at certain tasks by exploiting the strange properties of quantum physics, and the IBM Q utilizes theories of physics to create computing techniques that are far more powerful than current devices. Unlike modern computers that function using a binary system that give answers made up of ones and zeros, quantum computers use qubits allowing huge data sets or complicated algorithms to be answered much faster.
The capability of the IBM Q System One surpasses those of classical computers which is highly competent in processing sizeable data and complex algorithms. With the help of quantum computations, the system has the potential to revolutionize pharmaceutical, financial as well as technological fields.
