IBM reveals its grand plans for a quantum future

IBM has published its quantum computing roadmap, including plans to radically improve the performance of quantum processor’s by 41 times by 2023. 

The computing giant currently has more than two dozen quantum computers in its cloud that are available for public experiments. These systems are based on IBM’s 5-qubit Quantum Canary processors as well as 27-qubit Quantum Falcon processors. 

In addition, IBM has a 65-qubit Quantum Hummingbird processor that is available to its IBM Q Network members.

In the longer-term future, IBM says it plans to boost performance of quantum computers by thousands of times, and double performance of its quantum processors next year with its 127-qubit Quantum Eagle processor.
