IBM's Q System One is the world's first commercial quantum computer

IBM unveiled the world's first standalone quantum computer - the IBM Q System One - which is an architectural marvel yet powerful enough to leave the best supercomputers in the dust.

IBM is locked in a race with Alphabet Inc.'s Google, Microsoft Corp. and others in building machines that businesses can use to solve hard real-world problems now beyond the reach of the most powerful conventional supercomputers.

Quantum computers are a radically different kind of computer based on the laws of quantum mechanics. "Quantum computing can potentially provide us with capabilities to simulate nature and chemistry that we've never had before". IBM said the Q System One makes it possible to reset qubits in a matter of hours, instead of the days or weeks it normally takes.

Timberwolves Fire Coach Tom Thibodeau
It's already been a whirlwind of a season thanks to Sunday's firing of Thibodeau and the Jimmy Butler trade on November 12. The Minnesota Timberwolves could have interest in Hoiberg in either a head coaching or general manager capacity.

BIG BLUE IBM has announced the world's first integrated quantum computing system designed for commercial use.

Coming to the design of Q System One, all the parts sit enclosed in a thick, air-tight glass enclosure. The company has also said that out of all the received patents, more than 3,000 patents are related to work in artificial intelligence, cloud and quantum computing. So far, most of these computers haven't gone beyond research labs and sporadic demonstrations.

The replica of Q System One will be introduced at CES 2019 on January 8. The IBM Q System One ensures that these quantum computers can operate beyond the confines of a research lab. The company is, however, set to give access to the quantum computing system to businesses partnering under the IBM Q Network.

NW teacher suspended over alleged racial separation in class
North West Education MEC Sello Lehare says the school's explanation is that the children were separated on the basis of language. On Thursday, the department announced that the teacher had been suspended, pending the outcomes of the investigations.

"The IBM Q System One is a major step forward in the commercialization of quantum computing", Arvind Krishna, senior vice president of Hybrid Cloud and director of IBM Research said in a statement. Is quantum computing no longer just a concept or theory? Developed in partnership with United Kingdom industrial and interior design studios Map Project Office and Universal Design Studio, the IBM System Q One sits in a glass-enclosed, air-tight environment. Talking about cloud computing and quantum computing, the firm has bagged over 2,000 patents in cloud computing and the highest number of quantum computing patents issued including a new way of miniaturising components that improve the performance of quantum computers. This can be opened using a motor-driven rotation, in order to simplify the system's maintenance and upgrade process, says IBM.

A series of independent aluminum and steel frames unify, but also decouple the system's cryostat, control electronics, and exterior casing, helping to avoid potential vibration interference that leads to "phase jitter" and qubit decoherence. While the computer is open to paying customers, developers will access its power from the comfort of their own homes or offices via the IBM Cloud. The Q System One is created to reduce interference like vibration, ambient noise, electromagnetic waves and changes in temperature.

Erdogan threats against Kurds will not stop Syria withdrawal, Pompeo says
Trump initially said it would be immediate, which alarmed his advisors and drove Secretary of Defense James N. Erdogan refused to meet Bolton and called the national security advisor's comments a "serious mistake".
