IBM gets 9,100 patents in 2018, India second highest contributor

Building the IBM Q System One.                  IBM

IBM inventors from India earned over 800 patents - the second highest contributor to the company's global record of 9,100 patents in the U.S. in 2018 - with almost half in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cloud computing, cyber security, Blockchain and Quantum Computing.

Fermilab will use quantum computers for machine learning to classify objects in large cosmology survey applications, as well as optimization techniques to better understand the results of hadron collisions, and quantum simulation to research the potential of studying neutrino-nucleon cross-sections.

IBM Q System One's eye-catching design is functional in the way it enables the quantum system to perform its sensitive, precise operations. The 20-Quibit system by IBM, which is seen as one of the leaders in the field of quantum computing, could one day solve complex problems.

Much as classical computers combine multiple components into an integrated architecture optimized to work together, IBM is applying the same approach to quantum computing with the first integrated universal quantum computing system. Is quantum computing no longer just a concept or theory?

In terms of the IBM Q System One's appearance, the computer is defined by a stack of circuit boards and wires, encased in a metal cylinder that sits in a half-inch thick glass case.

Looking at IBM's Q System One strengthens faith in commercial availability of quantum computers. Notably, Google back in 2017 was said to have given early access to its quantum machines to science labs and artificial intelligence researchers.

At the same time, IBM also announced the opening of a commercial Q Quantum Computation Center in Poughkeepsie, New York later this year. IBM has, therefore, consolidated all the components of the Q System One into a glass-enclosed, air-tight environment.

The IBM Q Network provides its organizations with quantum expertise and resources, quantum software and developer tools, as well as cloud-based access to IBM's most advanced and scalable commercial universal quantum computing systems available.

"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", it said. All these are likely to be the areas where the IBM Q System One will be sufficient enough. Instead, they will only be accessible via IBM's computing cloud.

ExxonMobil's partnership with IBM expands the company's collaborative efforts with other companies and academic institutions that are focused on developing an array of new energy technologies, improving energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Its Q System One aims to make integration a lot easier so that it can be applied to the issues businesses face.
