...novel computing architectures at IBM... quantum computing platform in the cloud,
the “IBM Quantum Experience,” was opened up to researchers, scientists, and the public.
IBM Quantum Computer is running on extremely cold environment, very near absolute 0 K and it has total of (only) 5 Qubits accessible via cloud, used mostly for scientific research.
Quantum physics is well established science (while complex and mind-bending) but technology is using it for computing is still in early stages. "Cloud" is a very useful for providing access to such complex tools. Google also has a quantum computer for its internal usage.
