Quantum Computing - Meet IBM Q
Hosted by IBM.
Today, quantum computing is still only possible as a researcher’s playground. In five years, this will no longer be true as it becomes mainstream. Quantum computing offers up the possibility to solve problems once considered unsolvable as it is used extensively by new categories of professionals and developers.
This is your chance to come face-to-face with the technology of tomorrow: IBM Q is an industry-first initiative to build commercially available universal quantum computers for business and science. Mark Mattingley-Scott, IT architect and IBM Quantum Computing Ambassador, will take you on a wild ride through what the future might hold.
Check out the video on The Sounds of IBM: IBM Q.
What to Expect
Introduction Here Mark will answer questions on what Q event is, how is it different and the challenges involved in the making the switch.
IBM Q What is IBM’s position with regards to Q (the quantum experience, API's, cloud Q, simulators)?
Onboarding Time to get your hands dirty (or really cold): Mark shows you the ropes on how to sign up for and install Q, and then you have free rein to test it.
