NYU Joins IBM Q Hub at Air Force Research Lab
(NYU.edu) NYU will join the IBM Q Hub at the Air Force Research Lab to advance the fundamental research and use of quantum computing in simulation of quantum systems and advancing quantum education.
IBM will provide NYU with access through the cloud to the world’s largest fleet of quantum computing systems for commercial use case exploration and fundamental research.
Together with the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) and IBM, NYU will explore quantum computing research to study measurement-based quantum computing, materials discovery with variational quantum eigensolver, and emulating new phases on small quantum systems.
“We are excited to join AFRL and IBM to transform quantum computing concepts into a powerful technology by educating a new quantum workforce, expanding our scientific partnership and engaging in cross disciplinary collaboration,” said Javad Shabani, an assistant professor of physics at NYU.
