Qiskit – Write once, target multiple architectures

Qiskit has the flexibility to target different underlying quantum hardware with minimal additions to its code base. To demonstrate this, we have recently added support in Qiskit for trapped ion-based quantum computing devices, and enabled access to the five-qubit trapped ion device at the University of Innsbruck, hosted by Alpine Quantum Technologies.

On “Quantum Supremacy”

Regarding Google's "quantum supremacy" paper, we argue that an ideal simulation of the same task can be performed on a classical system in 2.5 days and with far greater fidelity. This is in fact a conservative, worst-case estimate, and we expect that with additional refinements the classical cost of the simulation can be further reduced.

Harnessing Gallium Phosphide for Future Information Technology

  In the paper “Integrated gallium phosphide nonlinear photonics”, recently published in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Photonics, we report on the development of high-performance photonic devices made of the crystalline semiconductor gallium phosphide. This work represents a breakthrough in the manipulation of light with semiconductor materials integrated on a chip. It opens the door to […]

More Is Less: Learning Efficient Video Representations

IBM researchers developed a novel low memory footprint and efficient architecture for spatio-temporal analysis of video. The results show strong performance on several benchmarks – and allow training of deeper models using larger sequences of input frames, which will lead to higher accuracy on video action recognition tasks.

Speculator : A Microscope for Spectre-like Attacks

Ever since the discovery of Spectre and Meltdown at the beginning of 2018, my team at IBM Research – Zurich and I have been focusing very closely on the study of transient execution attacks. Beginning that journey, we quickly realized that in order to study transient execution attacks, we first needed to observe and understand […]

Crypto anchors and blockchain: a strong alliance against supply chain fraud

If you are a wine collector, chances are your vintage bottle doesn’t contain the rare, expensive wine it is supposed to. The same goes with consumers of extra virgin olive oil or expensive brands of whiskey. While counterfeits of luxury goods are a nuisance and can cause sizable economic loss, there are even worse sorts […]

Augmenting Humans: IBM’s Project Debater AI gives human debating teams a hand at Cambridge

Two teams, sparring on a controversial topic — whether artificial intelligence would bring more harm than good — the Thursday night debate in front of 300-strong audience seemed rather typical for Cambridge Union, the world’s oldest debating society. Except it wasn’t.
