Watson Research Center in New York.(Photo : Jon Simon | IBM) Quantum computer systems are often easily affected by the vulnerability of quantum bits or qubits to electromagnetic radiation and heat. For error-free computing, qubits have to be cooled to near absolute zero (-459 degrees Fahrenheit) or else, the results will end up being erroneous. IBM is among a number of tech companies looking for ways to resolve these quantum hardware volatilities. On Tuesday, Dec. 8, the company announced that it has acquired the support of the United States’ Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) to…
