Celebrating Black talent at IBM Quantum

In recognition of Black History Month, we spoke with a few of our growing cohort of Black IBM Quantum team members working to build the future of quantum computing. The four featured here perform indispensable roles at each level of the quantum stack, from researching quantum algorithms and their potential applications to building a global quantum ecosystem. We hope you'll follow along and celebrate their accomplishments with us today and into the future.

IBM physicist & APS Fellow Heike Riel: from furniture design to quantum computing

Heike Riel's recent appointment as an APS Fellow attests her leadership in science and technology. While many distinguished physicists are part of the APS, only a handful are elected to the fellowship — and even fewer still are female. So when Riel learned last fall that she had been selected, she was deeply touched. “It’s truly an honor and I am humbled to have received this recognition from one of the most highly respected organizations for professionals in physics,” she says. “I am very grateful for my colleagues as well as the teams and institutions that have supported me along the way.”

Setting the bar for variational quantum algorithms using high-performance classical simulations

In the recently published Nature Physics research paper, we, along with our colleague Dr. David Gosset, associate professor at the University of Waterloo's Institute of Quantum Computing, show that certain properties of shallow quantum circuits on a two-dimensional grid of qubits can be simulated classically in time that grows only linearly with the number of qubits.

IBM’s innovation: Topping the US patent list for 28 years running

A patent is evidence of an invention, protecting it through legal documentation, and importantly, published for all to read. The number of patents IBM produces each year – and in 2020, it was more than 9,130 US patents – demonstrates our continuous, never-ending commitment to research and innovation.
