Quantum computers promise to outperform regular machines at certain tasks by exploiting the unusual properties of quantum physics, and the IBM Q utilizes theories of physics to create computing techniques that are far more powerful than current devices.

The total, and IBM's ranking, comes courtesy of the research service IFI Claims, and among the more than 1,600 AI-related patents IBM secured during 2018 was one for Project Debater. 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.

"In 2018, IBM employee inventors received a record number of 9,100 patents, marking the company's 26th consecutive year of the US patent leadership".

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.

Enclosed in a nine-foot-tall, nine-foot-wide glass case that forms an air-tight environment, this sleek computer is IBM's first effort to bring quantum computing to businesses. 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.

IBM Q systems are created to one-day tackle problems that are now seen as too complex and exponential in nature for classical computers to handle. They quickly lose their special quantum properties, typically within 100 microseconds (for state-of-the-art superconducting qubits), due in part to electromagnetic environment, vibrations, and temperature fluctuations. The company also earned patents for blockchain technology as well as for quantum computing uses. So, it might not be that powerful and more optimizations would be on its way.

A replica of IBM Q System One will be on display at CES. For more information, visit www.exxonmobil.com or follow us on Twitter www.twitter.com/exxonmobil. Bob Sutor, the VP of IBM Q Strategy and Ecosystem.

On Tuesday, though, IBM unveiled the IBM Q System One, billed as the first-ever quantum computer designed for businesses to put to their own use - though the company is clear that this is only the first step towards a broader revolution.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory's IBM Q Hub, announced in 2017, now includes member labs: Argonne National Laboratory, Fermilab, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

IBM Q is an industry-first initiative to build commercial universal quantum systems for business and science applications. And with its latest Q System One, it sure seems to have taken a step forward in doing so.
