Biggish Blue said that computations that take months now will take mere hours.
Qiskit by itself allows more circuits to run at a "much faster" rate, and can store quantum programs so that other users can run them. However, it uploads programs to conventional hardware sitting next to the quantum machines. The move is meant to cut the latency between a user's computer and the quantum chip.
Biggish Blue expects to release Qiskit sometime in 2021 and it has a roadmap of quantum systems handling a wider range of circuits, and more computing challenges, by 2022. New control systems and libraries in 2023 will help IBM reach its goal of running systems with 1,000 or more qubits, taking the company closer to a "quantum advantage" where the technology can handle at least some tasks more efficiently or cost-effectively than traditional hardware.
