Today I met the IBM Quantum computer ambassador Cor van der Struiff at a conference we both gave talk.

I asked how long before we will have a quantum computer in our hands. He said “how about right now”. He reached into his jacket, took a little black box, opened it and took out a smal plate. “Here you go he said”. Wow!!

Of course this is not the whole computer, but just the hearts of it. Lots of cables, power and cooling are needed, but I’ll remember this day as the deco formation things speed up. Later he explained during his emcees informative talk, nobody understands quantum computing, yet. Pffff, happy with that statement;-)

No cookie with coffee but a quantum computer :-)
