Let’s be clear: it’s for ‘education & research’, NOT for ‘dissection & duplication’, sometimes referred to as “reverse engineering” or erroneously-justified as “innovation”.

The U.S.A. based company will let you use it, for now, . . .

- “with the university holding exclusive access rights to use it, was set up at Kawasaki Business Incubation Ctr in Kanagawa Pref, SW of Tokyo.” -

. . . to keep up with your ‘BIG brothers & sisters’:

*- “making a foray into a fiercely competitive field led by the U.S. & China.” -*

Yes! @9:05am: ‘GO JAPAN !!’ and “Thanks!” for giving IBM, an American multinational tech co., HQ in N.Y. U.S.A., the location to house *their** *newest commercial-use, quantum computer! :

*- “The next-generation system, developed by the U.S. tech co.”*

There still isn’t any commercial use of quantum computing. If you would have read a little bit about it, you should know that. It’s all still a researcher’s toy capable of doing nothing or in the best case capable of doing calculations without any real use.

Once practical, the first task of quantum computers will be to start cracking encryption. Pretty much guaranteed.

He noted many technical challenges remain for the full-fledged operation of quantum computers and the race to develop them has been intensifying globally, led by the United States and China.

The tech could be nearing a tipping point and usher in a cascade of tech developments because of a new state of matter, "time crystals".

Sounds like SF but the implications are very exciting.
