Quantum Innovation Initiative Consortium members to have access to region’s first utility-scale IBM Quantum System One for research interests, including bioinformatics, materials science, and financeTOKYO, JAPAN, Nov. 27, 2023 -- Today, the University of Tokyo (UTokyo) and IBM (NYSE: IBM) have announced the deployment of a 127-qubit IBM Quantum Eagle processor, now operational in Japan’s first IBM Quantum System One. Scientists at institutions participating in the Quantum Innovation Initiative (QII) Consortium intend to put the system’s new processor toward quantum research in bioinformatics, high energy physics, materials science, and finance, among other disciplines. The 127-qubit IBM Quantum Eagle is the region’s first utility-scale processor. IBM defines ‘utility-scale,’ as the point at which quantum computers could serve as scientific tools to explore a new scale of problems.
