  • IBM Quantum System Two offers a glimpse into the future quantum computing data centre, where modularity and flexibility of system infrastructure will be key towards continued scaling. Electronics Weekly
Technological
  • What that has the potential to do is take quantum from the computing equivalent of the Werner Braun V2 rocket to something much more like SpaceX: scalability, repeatability, and lower cost. Forbes
  • IBM recently announced its Eagle 127-qubit quantum device and shed light on how it is packaged into a system via the IBM Quantum System Two for users who might want to bring quantum hardware in-house. The Next Platform
  • The South Korean electronics giant will be joining IBM's Quantum Network, which already includes a number of other technology manufacturers including Sony, as well as manufacturers like Toyota, Mitsubishi, Samsung, Boeing, Daimler, and others. The Next Platform
Financial Impact
McKinsey predicts the value of potential of quantum-computing use cases at full scale by 2035 will be greater than $1 trillion. Dark Reading
In a new report, McKinsey estimates, conservatively, that the value at stake for quantum-computing use cases by 2030 will be between $300 billion and $700 billion in just the four industries that its research suggests could reap the greatest short-term benefits. Chicago Tribune
The value at stake for quantum-computing players is nearly $80 billion (not to be confused with the value that quantum-computing use cases could generate). McKinsey & Company
