zero_offset (200586) writes "Over the past few days many sources (for example, InformationWeek) have been reporting that a Canadian company named D-Wave Systems announced that tomorrow, February 13th, they'll demonstrate a commercially-available 16-qubit quantum computer. The founder and CTO states, "It doesn't do any kind of communications or cryptographic applications, but instead solves multivariable, combinatorial problems on our own supercooled quantum computer." Other sources are reporting that companies such as IBM are skeptical. Based on a 2005 article in Technology Review which stated they were looking at a 3-year timeline, it would appear they're ahead of schedule."
