Quantum advantage, the main point in which quantum computers outperform all the conventional systems in a few tasks, may make its commercial debut in two years if it maintains its growth trajectory. IBM recently presented the figures for the same at an event held in the Zurich research center. IBM made an announcement regarding the 127 qubit Eagle computer, and it was also revealed that the next series of computers would also be named after birds. The Falcon revision 10 had recently managed to achieve an error rate of less than 0.1% when compared to how it performed two to three years ago.

Zaira Nazario, technical leader from IBM, has stated that the error rate of the 27 qubit Falcon series has dropped significantly in the last two years, and IBM’s offerings for the same are reliably maintaining the coherence of 300μs. Nazario has stated that more chips can be built that can run quantum circuits if one error in 10,000 is achieved. The new circuits are built so robustly that conventional machines cannot handle them. Last week, the Big Blue had also unveiled a successor to its Quantum System One. This might not look like a computer, but it is the electronic and cryogenic support system that is integral for quantum computers.
