Understanding the Complexity of Quantum Circuit Compilation

What’s a quantum circuit? A quantum circuit can be a tricky thing. Quantum computing promises to be faster than classical computing in some, but not all computational problems. Whether quantum computers can be faster than classical computers depends on the nature of the problem being solved. When speedups are possible, the magnitude of the speedup […]

The Adversarial Robustness Toolbox: Securing AI Against Adversarial Threats

Recent years have seen tremendous advances in the development of artificial intelligence (AI). Modern AI systems achieve human-level performance on cognitive tasks such as recognizing objects in images, annotating videos, converting speech to text, or translating between different languages. Many of these breakthrough results are based on Deep Neural Networks (DNNs). DNNs are complex machine […]

Advancing cloud with memory disaggregation

Here at IBM Research – Ireland, we are rethinking the very foundations on which the cloud is built. We are developing a concept and prototype for low-power and high-utilization disaggregated cloud data centres that break known boundaries, enabling the dynamic creation of fit-for-purpose computing environments from a pool of disaggregated resources. Today’s cloud data centres […]
