AP Physics Students from Youngstown Heights Learn About Quantum Computing at IBM

By IQT News posted 02 Aug 2019

(TapInto.net) A group of Youngstown Heights AP physics high school students recently visited the IBM TJ Watson Research Center. The students are supported by Vishnubhai Patel, retired IBM researcher and current Yorktown councilman, and Ramanjaneya Burugula, a scalable systems software researcher at IBM.
They heard a presentation by Dr. Jay Gambetta, an IBM fellow in quantum computing who used a decommissioned quantum computing module. The students considered one of the best moments of our tour was the ability to see a fully functional IBM quantum computer. According to the researcher who explained IBM’s quantum computers to us, the core unit of a quantum computer operates at a temperature of 20 millikelvin, which is 0.02 degrees from absolute zero.
