IBM Doubles Its Quantum Computing Power Again
January 8, 2020 | Forbes Magazine | by Paul Smith-Goodson
IBM announced at CES 2020 that its newest 28-qubit quantum computer, Raleigh, achieved the company’s goal of doubling its Quantum Volume (IBM names its systems by city names). Raleigh reached a Quantum Volume of 32 this year, up from 16 last year. Raleigh draws on an improved hexagonal lattice connectivity structure developed in IBM’s 53-qubit quantum computer, and features improved coherence aspects. According to IBM, the lattice connectivity had an impact on reduced gate errors and exposure to crosstalk.

On "Quantum Supremacy"
October 21, 2019 | IBM Research Blog | Written by: Edwin Pednault, John Gunnels & Dmitri Maslov, and Jay Gambetta
Quantum computers are starting to approach the limit of classical simulation and it is important that we continue to benchmark progress and to ask how difficult they are to simulate. This is a fascinating scientific question...
Quantum Computing Starts Now
Aug. 13, 2019 via EETimes
This early start is necessary because quantum computing is not simply faster computing, it differs dramatically from traditional computing in the way it solves problems. Developers will need the time to become familiar with the new approach so that they are prepared to use quantum computing as soon as it is ready.
The Quantum Computing Party Hasn't Even Started Yet
Aug. 12, 2019 in Scientific American
Because quantum computers that are powerful enough to shake up some of the world’s largest industries will begin to hit the market in just three to five years. And it will take you at least that long to build the expertise required to take advantage of them for your own business benefit.
