Abstract: In this talk I will describe the IBM quantum processor that is open to the public. The processor has only 5 qubits, but is suitable for quantum demonstrations of basic qubit gates, Bell inequality experiments and elements of quantum error correction. I will review the web-based interface for writing programs for the quantum processor. Then, I will demonstrate the execution of several programs and discuss the accuracy of the results obtained from experiments. I will also review recent progress towards a large-scale universal quantum processor.
