Recent research by IBM and University of Notre Dame serves as a new use case for quantum computing, showing that qubit noise, typically an impediment to quantum computer use, can actually be an advantage over a classical computer for chemical simulations.
At the Q2B 2019 Conference, IBM announced that Stanford University’s Q-Farm initiative, a collaborative with the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, has joined the IBM Q Network. As a member organization, Q-FARM will collaborate with IBM to accelerate joint research in quantum computing and develop curricula to help prepare students for careers that will be influenced by this next era of computing across science and business.
IBM Research is embarking on a multi-year, collaborative effort with Wells Fargo focused on research and learning that is intended to enhance the company’s artificial intelligence and quantum computing capabilities. Together with IBM Research, Wells Fargo plans to accelerate its learnings to inform innovation initiatives that reimagine the future of financial services in a way that is designed to deliver customer experiences that are simple, fast, safe and convenient.
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.
The IBM Q team is committed to making our science more approachable by investing heavily in the education to support this growing community and establishing the emerging technology as the next generation of computing. We need more students, educators, developers, and domain experts with “quantum ready” skills. This is why our team is proud to release new educational resources and tools while also increasing the capacity and capability of our IBM Q systems.
IBM and Princeton launched the program to provide an experience for aspiring scientists and engineers that connects fundamental research to industrial applications at a time in their career development when they still have considerable latitude to choose a focus for their graduate and post-graduate studies.
Classical computing has served society incredibly well. It gave us the Internet and cashless commerce. It sent humans to the moon, put robots on Mars and smartphones in our pockets. But many of the world’s biggest mysteries and potentially greatest opportunities remain beyond the grasp of classical computers forever. To continue the pace of progress, […]
Since launching its Q Network initiative in 2017, IBM Research has been working with Fortune 500 companies, academic institutions, research labs and startups worldwide to advance quantum computing technology for commercial use.
