Quantum Chip 7nmQuantum computing is coming, but how to get it on to your desktop and working in your everyday life is still a while away. What has been a problem is getting the quantum chips working in conjunction with the classical chips. Something that the University of New South Wales (UNSW) has figured out is how to make an architecture that integrates the new chips with classical chips. This quantum-based processor is designed using a silicon-based quantum computer processor based on complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technology.

IBM HeadquartersIBM has officially announced the next stage in their advanced cloud service, one that is based on a record breaking 20 qubit quantum machine, 15 qubits beyond their past incarnation.

The quantum computer cloud was already quite a leap in technology, offering 5 qubits for consumers for free. Now that early adoption has taken off, IBM is eagerly presenting their newest jump forward: an astonishing 20 qubit cloud that will be their first commercial quantum machine.
