IBM Q System One At CES, IBM today announced its first commercial quantum computer for use outside of the lab. The 20-qubit system combines into a single package the quantum and classical computing parts it takes to use a machine like this for research and business applications. That package, the IBM Q system, is […]

Its AI could detect the development of a disease. The strength of your grip can frequently be a good indicator of your health, and not just for clearly linked diseases like Parkinson’s — it can gauge your cognitive abilities and even your heart health. To that end, IBM has developed a fingernail sensor that can […]
Here are a few of IBM’s predictions about what life will look like in 2022.
A team of researchers from IBM, the University of Waterloo, and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) today published the results of an experiment proving a quantum computer can do things a classical one cannot. This may be a watershed moment in the history of computer science.
You can get hired at Apple even without a fancy piece of paper telling people you got a lot of book learning. The traditional life plan includes four years of college then a good job. But not everyone takes this path, and sometimes the lack of a college degree keeps some people from getting a […]
Digital properties such as photos and videos get stolen frequently, which is why many creators of such forms of content employ watermarking methodologies so that ownership is easier to claim in case of theft. Another less-known digital property that can get stolen are artificial intelligence (AI) models, that have been developed by researchers after months, […]
There’s no x86 in the AI chip market yet—”People see a gold rush; there’s no doubt.” A lot has changed since 1918. But whether it’s a literal (like the City of London School athletics’ U12 event) or figurative (AI chip development) race, participants still very much want to win. For years, the semiconductor world seemed […]
The University of Michigan was salty that IBM made a smaller computer than it did, so it made an even smaller computer. In a compelling act of nerd rivalry, engineers at the University of Michigan have created the world’s smallest computer—again.
If there’s one downside to powerful computers, it’s that they’re too damn big. Luckily, that’s about to change. At least, if IBM has anything to say about it. March 19 is the first day of IBM Think 2018, the company’s flagship conference, where the company will unveil what it claims is the world’s smallest computer. […]
IBM has been offering quantum computing as a cloud service since last year when it came out with a 5 qubit version of the advanced computers. Today, the company announced that it’s releasing 20-qubit quantum computers, quite a leap in just 18 months. A qubit is a single unit of quantum information.
