IBM receives 9,100 patents in 2018; India 2nd highest contributor in world

One of the patents filed from India went to IBM inventors Shivali Agarwal Gaargi B Dasgupta Shripad J Nadgowda and Tapan K Nayak

At this lab, clients can use IBM's cloud-based quantum computing systems, as well as other high performance computing systems. The new machine doesn't look like a mainframe computer.

The IBM Q Network is the world's first community of Fortune 500 companies, startups, academic institutions and research labs working with IBM to advance quantum computing and explore practical applications for business and science. In the more immediate reality of 2019, IBM still has something in the works. Instead, it comes in a futuristic, nine-foot-tall and nine-foot wide case of half-inch thick borosilicate glass that reminds us of the cylindrical design of the 2013 Mac Pro.

"The IBM Q System One is a major step forward in the commercialization of quantum computing", swooned Arvind Krishna, senior vice president of Hybrid Cloud and director of IBM Research. New algorithms will also be used to model and simulate quantum network architectures and develop hybrid quantum-classical architectures, which combine the power of quantum processors with Argonne's world-class supercomputing resources.

For the 26th year in a row, IBM earned more patents than any other U.S. company in 2018 - 9,100, to be exact, with more than a third of those the result of the computing giant's work in artificial intelligence as well as in cloud and quantum computing.

IBM Q is an industry-first initiative to build commercial universal quantum systems for business and science applications. Usually, quantum computers are carefully preserved in research labs, where various elements such as reinforced chambers, tanks of liquid helium, cryogenic equipment and hundreds of yards of cabling, the Financial Times reported. The company intends to open a commercial center for quantum computing clients this year in Poughkeepsie, New York. For example, future applications for quantum computing may include untangling the complexity of molecular and chemical interactions leading to the discovery of new medicines, or finding and developing new materials for automotive application through quantum chemistry. IBM has, therefore, consolidated all the components of the Q System One into a glass-enclosed, air-tight environment. The new computers are based on the laws of quantum mechanics and rely on qubits.

This case is purpose-built to eliminate outside interference and lengthen the lifespan of quantum computing's units of information called qubits so they survive long enough to perform useful calculations without interference from external sound, vibrations, or temperature fluctuations.

IBM has a legacy of bringing enterprise-focused computing solutions. Additionally, steel and aluminum frames have been utilized to control casing and electronics and decouple cryostat. Having said that, it is still very early to predict the success of the IBM Q System One.
