Is IonQ the most powerful quantum computer?

Brian Wang (Nextbigfuture.com) interviewed Stewart Allen (CEO of IonQ) and concluded it might be the most powerful quantum computer in development.

Some key facts I’ve picked out:

  • IonQ has received $22 million in funding from GV (Google Ventures), NEA (New Enterprise Associates) and Amazon AWS, so the company will not get restricted by lack of funds.
  • IonQ systems operate at room temperature.
  • IonQ expect to make 100-200 qubit modules and link them with optical interconnects.
  • IonQ has a confident path to scaling up to thousands of qubits.
  • The expected deployment of quantum computers is to have at least one per data center, because they generate so much data.
  • The company doesn’t intend releasing a commercial computer until they can support it without slowing down development.
