The IBM-HBCU Quantum Center has announced a slate of new members for the Center, with 10 historically Black colleges and universities joining the Center’s 13 founding institutions.
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.
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).
The new IBM-HBCU Quantum Center announced at this week at IBM’s Quantum Summit is a multi-year investment that will bring together researchers and students across a network of 13 HBCUs.
We are excited to announce our Summer 2021 internship opportunities. Our goal is to train the future scientists, engineers, and developers across the globe who will help advance the field of quantum computing — all with a mindset that it is our responsibility to find and support the best candidates from a diverse global community.
The need for a future workforce with a robust set of quantum computing skills drives our support for Q2Work, the National Science Foundation-funded initiative led by the University of Illinois and the University of Chicago to provide quantum education, programs, tools, and curricula to K-12 students.
IBM Roundtable: Building a Quantum Workforce Requires Interdisciplinary Education and the Promise of Real Jobs
The ability to harness quantum-mechanical phenomena such as superposition and entanglement to perform computation obviously poses a number of difficulties. Add in the need to make these systems perform meaningful work, and you’ve raised the stakes considerably. Creating a pipeline of talented, well-trained academics and professionals who can meet those challenges was the subject of IBM’s July 28 virtual roundtable, “How to Build a Quantum Workforce.” Watch the replay, here.
IBM recently launched several initiatives to help inspire new students and begin building tomorrow’s quantum computing workforce. Our Quantum Educators program, in particular, provides professors and students with access to IBM quantum computers as well as the latest learning resources we’ve developed to help them get started programming and experimenting on quantum computers.
IBM Quantum just launched the IBM Quantum Researchers Program, which provides access to more systems and greater share of systems to do better research. Researchers with projects that require even deeper access such as microwave pulse control may apply for special awards for periods of time sufficient to complete experiments and publish papers.
In honor of Pi Day 2020, IBM is releasing a new tutorial that explains how to estimate the value of Pi on a quantum computer.
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 Quantum 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.
