Arvind Krishna, CEO of one of the largest technology companies, IBM, said that the company had created a quantum processor capable of performing tasks that are practically inaccessible in complexity to any traditional computer.
Quantum computing can solve problems that are difficult to perform on today’s most powerful supercomputers.
IBM claims its new Eagle processor can process 127 qubits of information. By exceeding 100 qubits, according to the company, IBM has achieved quantum excellence – the ability of a computing device to solve tasks that are almost impossible to perform on a traditional computer.
“You can’t model this on anything else, which means it’s more powerful than anything,” Krishna said on Axios on HBO.
According to the head of the company, Quantum computing is likely to play an important role in the next few years.
