Quantum with IBM Q

Innovation Talk Think Tanks

Physicists have been advancing the science for decades, but in the last few years quantum computing has started to become a reality. During this session physicist Jerry Chow will talk about his role as manager of the experimental quantum computing group at IBM Research and the evolution of IBM Q, an industry-first initiative to build commercially available universal quantum computers for business and science. Attendees will learn about significant progress Jerry and IBM Q scientists continue to make across the entire quantum computing technology stack, including a prototype 50 qubit processor, the emergency of quantum computing through the cloud via the IBM Q experience, QISKit developer tools, and the exploration of early use cases.

Jerry Chow

Manager and Distinguished Research Staff Member, Experimental Quantum Computing, IBM Research, IBM

Jerry Chow is an experimental physicist and the manager of IBM Research's Experimental Quantum Computing group at the Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York. His group explores applications of novel quantum devices to computing, specifically on building networks of superconducting qubits as part of IBM Q systems, and ultimately toward the implementation of a fault-tolerant quantum computer. Jerry has co-authored many scientific publications on quantum mechanics, including a 2017 Nature cover story featuring the breakthrough simulation of the largest molecule ever performed by a quantum computer. He received an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship for his quantum processor with superconducting qubits work and made the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in 2011. Jerry has a PhD in Physics from Yale University, and MS in Applied Mathematics and AB in Physics from Harvard University. He was named a Distinguished Research Staff Member in 2017 in IBM Research.
