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.
IBM's Dr. Dmitri Maslov named IEEE Fellow for “quantum circuit synthesis and optimization, and compiling for quantum computers.”
What does programming for the not-so-distant quantum future look like? From November 9 to 30, more than 3,300 people from 85 countries applied for the 2,000 seats of the IBM Quantum Challenge to find out. As our cloud-accessible quantum systems continue to advance in scale and capability with better processors of larger number of qubits, […]
As we looked closer at the kinds of jobs our systems execute, we noticed a richer structure of quantum-classical interactions including multiple domains of latency. These domains include real-time computation, where calculations must complete within the coherence time of the qubits, and near-time computation, which tolerates larger latency but which should be more generic. The constraints of these two domains are sufficiently different that they demand distinct solutions.
We're excited to announce the IBM Quantum Awards: Open Science Prize, an award totaling $100,000 for any person or team who can devise an open source solution to two important challenges at the forefront of quantum computing based on superconducting qubits: reducing gate errors, and measuring graph state fidelity.
IBM and Princeton University are delighted to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2021 Quantum Undergraduate Research at IBM and Princeton (QURIP) internship program.
Continuing the journey to frictionless quantum software: Qiskit Chemistry module & Gradients framework
We’ve taken another important step on our path towards frictionless quantum computing: A new release of Qiskit with a completely overhauled Qiskit Chemistry module, as well as a brand new Qiskit Gradients framework. Both enhancements pave the way for quantum application software that serves the needs of domain experts and quantum algorithm researchers.
Apply for the IBM Quantum Challenge: Programming for the Not-So-Distant Quantum Future, a three-week quantum computing educational challenge starting on November 8 at 19:00 US EST / November 9 at 9:00 JST. Seats are limited to 2,000 so make sure to sign up early.
IBM Quantum will sponsor 5,000 students to attend an eight-month intensive quantum computing course from The Coding School (and you could be one of them).
Scientists at Mitsubishi Chemical, a member of the IBM Quantum Hub at Keio University in Japan, reached out to our team about experimenting with new approaches to error mitigation and novel quantum algorithms to address these very challenges. In the new arXiv preprint, “Applications of Quantum Computing for Investigations of Electronic Transitions in Phenylsulfonyl-carbazole TADF Emitters,” we – along with collaborators at Keio University and JSR - describe quantum computations of the “excited states,” or high energy states, of industrial chemical compounds that could potentially be used in the fabrication of efficient organic light emitting diode (OLED) devices.
A recent panel discussion on “The Promise of Quantum for Industry” at the annual IBM Quantum Summit homed in on several business challenges that quantum computers are well-suited to tackle.
