Publication Date: August 2019
Length: 3 pages
The European Union Quantum Technologies Flagship, a ten-year 1 billion euro effort, tasked with fostering EU-wide capabilities in quantum technologies, recently released the first draft of its Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) that outlines the comprehensive set of technologies and applications the program hopes to address in the next decade. The SRA covers a broad range of quantum-related technologies but also addresses wider goals that include building viable quantum technologies infrastructures and supply chains, fostering a trained and educated quantum workforce and user base, and supporting the development of new quantum-based products and services.

IBM’s Q System One: One More Piece of the Larger Puzzle
IBM's recent announcement of their new Q System One universal quantum computer is yet another milestone in the firm's long-term commitment to transitioning quantum computing (QC) hardware from one-off research status into a capable commercial offering. Although the new Q System One, as announced, does not demonstrate any significant advances in current quantum computing capability, as measured by the number of qubits per system, it does show that IBM can design and manufacture a system that, at the right price, could be attractive to a wide range of users looking to integrate quantum computing into their overall R&D process.
