IBM has announced its achievement of a significant milestone in quantum computing with a 1,121-qubit processor, representing the pinnacle of its previous quantum roadmap. Preceded by processors like the 433-qubit “Osprey” and 127-qubit “Eagle,” the focus in the quantum computing industry is currently on error correction and fault tolerance. IBM foresees a quantum computing “inflection point” by 2029, where experiments with 100-qubit systems are considered the standard, with ongoing efforts to increase the number of quantum gates processors can utilize.
