IBM has cloud access to quantum computer 400 times smaller than D-Wave system


IBM has always excelled in the research department. Cool stuff!

But, can we still call them Big Blue? Maybe they can use this to turn themselves around. I don't see this ever being used in our homes, but the "cloud" came along at the right time to make this relevant.

It's kind of sad that this will be used to make money off us (looking at you Google). Hopefully NASA can do better.

Science has gotten to the end of the usefulness of good old 'trial and error' maybe Q computing can get us out of this rut.


Let's see:

IBM = Big Blue

Google = Big Evil

Apple = Big Apple? (already taken...)
