Quantum computing is the developing field of computers that run on quantum bits (or qubits) and their properties of entanglement and superpositions, rather than standard binary bits and logic gates used in computers today.
Creating the conditions for quantum computing to function is a lot of work. Mainly, this involves an incredibly cold refrigerator, which keeps its interior at 50 millikelvin (-459F). In this condition, the qubits made of niobium, silicon, and aluminum are stable enough to be used for computing. With this method, IBM says they’ve created a 20 qubit system that can now be used by researchers all over the world.
The sound of quantum computing, it turns out, isn’t particularly soothing. But even if it won’t put us to sleep, perhaps it is the sound of the future.
