#IBM announced today that it was updating its Quantum Experience cloud with a new #API that it hopes will increase the abilities of researchers and other interested parties to build more sophisticated applications with its experimental quantum computing system.
The hope was that by providing interested parties with a working quantum computing model, it would help advance the technology, which remains very much in the preliminary stage of development.
Chow says this is believed to be the holy grail of quantum computing when we can really begin to take advantage of its power.
By offering free access to this type of cutting-edge computing, #IBM is hoping to advance the field with the belief that everyone will benefit if that happens.
Other companies working on quantum computing including Google, Microsoft, Intel and startups like D-Wave Systems.
