Society has not yet reached singularity, the hypothetical point in time at which technological growth surpasses human knowledge and will either destroy the world or save it. Over the years, futurists have predicted that at some point society will achieve singularity – 2020 was often mentioned as a potential year by futurists in the past but instead we ended up with COVID-19 and a global recession.
There’s only a handful of companies that may deliver on the promises of a tech singularity and one of them is Big Blue – International Business Machines Corp.
In a newly published roadmap, IBM has set stellar goals when it comes to what it wants to deliver in terms of scaling quantum technology. Quantum computing – an overhyped term along with artificial intelligence in the current year – despite the hype both are nascent technologies in 2020 with both still some time off in terms of what was meant to be but the plans of IBM could finally see proper quantum computing coming to pass.
IBM’s roadmap details how Big Blue in the short term is planning to deliver a quantum processor – notably an actual proper quantum processor not just one in name only that delivers over 1,000 qubits …
