Capgemini launches dedicated Quantum Lab & announces agreement with IBM to advance industry applications of quantum computing technology analytics
(Martechseries) Capgemini has signed an agreement with IBM to become an IBM Quantum Hub providing its clients access to IBM’s quantum computing systems as well as professional services.
Capgemini also announced it has set up a dedicated Lab and team of quantum technology experts from across the globe, to develop capabilities and coordinate research facilities aimed at the advancement of quantum technologies and exploration of their potential. In addition to Capgemini’s work to explore Quantum Communications and Quantum Sensing, the initiative also includes a collaboration with IBM to help clients build and maximize their engagements in the areas of Quantum Computing.
Capgemini’s Quantum Lab (Q-Lab) comprises quantum technology experts and highly-specialist facilities in the United Kingdom, Portugal and India, to harness the potential of quantum technologies. Capgemini’s Q-Lab will coordinate research programs to develop business-driven client propositions for sectors most likely to benefit from quantum technologies in the medium future – life sciences, financial services, automotive and aerospace. It will also drive early experiments with clients in their quantum journeys and accelerate the building of in-house skills and capabilities.
Capgemini has been accelerating the quantum readiness of its clients through consulting, strategic, engineering and algorithmic development solutions, leveraging its Applied Innovation Exchange network and its engineering teams, as well as ecosystem alliance partners and network of peers. The Group was also recently commissioned by the German Federal Office for Information Security, together with Fraunhofer IAIS, to lead a study in Quantum Machine Learning for IT security.
