IBM Q: The future is quantum

First steps towards programming a quantum computer over the cloud

Since last year, scientists, students, and the quantum computing curious have been able to explore the world’s first and only cloud-enabled quantum computing platform, the IBM Quantum Experience. They’re running well-known canonical quantum algorithms, such as two-qubit Grover’s Search, and even trying their own experiments on our IBM Cloud-hosted five-qubit quantum processor. We designed the […]

Students Live the Quantum Experience at IBM’s Swiss Lab

“The IBM Quantum Experience will make it easier for researchers and the scientific community to accelerate innovations in the quantum field, and help discover new applications for this technology,” said Arvind Krishna, senior vice president and director at IBM Research in May, when the company announced public access, via the cloud, to its 5 qubit processor. […]

Building IBM’s inventions

When most visitors tour IBM’s Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, an hour north of New York City, they are often shown the wall of Fellows, a portrait gallery of every IBM researcher who has earned the company’s highest technical rank, IBM Fellow, since the program started in 1963. But in another part […]

Quantum Experiences: Q&A with Caltech’s Christine Corbett Moran

Dr. Christine Corbett Moran travels the world in search of challenging problems to solve. The National Science Foundation’s Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow at the California Institute of Technology earned a PhD in Zurich, taught mobile development and entrepreneurship in Manila, and now calls Antarctica home while conducting experiments on the South Pole Telescope. It’s […]

Students try hand at cracking quantum code

This week I had the opportunity to return to the University of Waterloo, where I had been a visiting scholar while I was a PhD student at MIT, to participate in the Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing program (USEQIP), a unique two-week workshop at the university’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC). The program […]

The IBM Quantum Experience gathers momentum

Less than a month ago we opened up our advanced quantum processor to the world at large, letting members of the scientific community and the general public register for access to a quantum computing platform they could use from any desktop or mobile device via the cloud. Since the launch of the IBM Quantum Experience, we […]

Quantum computing: It’s time to build a quantum community

Computation, or information processing, has become ubiquitous in our society. Everywhere you look it has an impact on our lives, from making everyday tasks such as communicating easier, to opening new avenues of exploration, and allowing us to solve problems we would never have dreamed possible. Computation, as is generally contained in your phone, or […]
