### Apply to become a quantum computing intern at IBM

We are now accepting applications for undergraduate and graduate students to become IBM quantum computing interns in 2020 and join the journey from the fundamental science of quantum information to quantum computing research and development.

### Cracking the Molecular Code with the Right Type of Quantum Hardware

A new quantum computing approach using exchange-type two-qubit gates constitutes a very promising avenue to calculate molecular properties.

To encourage more teachers and students to take advantage of the IBM Q Experience and the IBM Qiskit development platform, we announced in January a number of challenges and prizes to inspire people to take the quantum leap. And the winners are… Today, we’re happy to announce the winners of the second IBM Q Award: […]

### Understanding the Complexity of Quantum Circuit Compilation

What’s a quantum circuit? A quantum circuit can be a tricky thing. Quantum computing promises to be faster than classical computing in some, but not all computational problems. Whether quantum computers can be faster than classical computers depends on the nature of the problem being solved. When speedups are possible, the magnitude of the speedup […]

### Domain Experts, Welcome to Quantum: Introducing QISKit AQUA

QISKit AQUA bridges classical, quantum computing Working with real quantum computers just got easier for experts in chemistry, artificial intelligence and optimization. Building on QISKit, our open source quantum information science kit for software development, we’ve released AQUA – Algorithms and circuits for QUantum Applications. This new open source software allows classical computer applications to […]

### Teach Me QISKit: We Have a Winner!

We announced in January four challenges and prizes to encourage people to take the quantum leap by taking advantage of the IBM Q Experience and the IBM QISKit development platform. One of those challenges, Teach Me QISKit, offered a $1,000 prize for the best interactive self-paced tutorial (based on Jupyter Notebooks) that explains a specific […]

### An Open High-Performance Simulator for Quantum Circuits

HPC Deployment of QISKit The recent surge of interest in quantum computing is largely due to the approach of “quantum advantage,” a point at which quantum computers will exceed the capabilities of the largest classical supercomputers when applied to a relevant and important application use case. Conversely, quantum computing simulation is a vital component in […]

### IBM Collaborating With Top Startups to Accelerate Quantum Computing

IBM announced the first startups to join the IBM Quantum Network, which is dedicated to advancing quantum computing, at the first IBM Quantum Summit Silicon Valley.

### Celebrating the IBM Quantum Experience community, and their research

More than 60 technical papers have been published, based on experiments run on the IBM Quantum Experience.

### QISKit for quantum computation

Current quantum computation efforts are the result of a long history of scientific achievements. The initial formulation of quantum mechanics in the 1920s and 30s gave us a fundamentally new understanding of the natural world. By the 70s, it was understood that this paradigm shift can also have implications for the way we compute. This […]
