They intend to open up use of their quantum computer to the public. It is particularly good at pattern recognition. The computer runs at 20 milliKelvin, and is EM shielded to limit electromagetic interference to one nanotesla in three dimensions across the whole chip. The article is here: Tomshardware Story. Could this be the first successful commercial quantum computer?"
