An American internationally renowned computer company IBM has unveiled the first quantum computer in Germany.
It is one of Europe most powerful quantum computer.
It is the company’s first quantum computer in use outside of the US.
According to the German News Agency, it is the first quantum computer of Germany, and it is capable of bending the laws of physics and computing in order to work.
IBM hopes to have a quantum computer that is 37 times faster in two years.
IBM said the Q System One was Europe’s most powerful quantum computer in the industrial context.

The quantum computer is to be housed in Ehningen, which is about 20 kilometres (12 miles) southwest of Stuttgart.
It will be operated by Germany’s Fraunhofer research institute.
The computer has been running since February, but its launch event was postponed as a result of the pandemic.
It is miracle of technology: Angela Merkel
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who holds a PhD in quantum chemistry from her time as a scientist in former East Germany, called the computer a “miracle of technology.”
Speaking via video, Angela Merkel said it could play “a key role in our efforts for technological and digital sovereignty, and of course for economic growth.”
German Companies hope to harness the power of quantum computers to potentially develop new materials, medications or artificial intelligence (AI).
The German government announced last month that it planned to invest some €2 billion ($2.4 billion) in quantum technology research by 2025.
The Fraunhofer institute said it would work with German companies and other research organizations to use the quantum computer to deepen its understanding of quantum computing and experiment with practical uses.
The project, funded by German taxpayers, will cost about €40 million over the next four years.
