(ITNews.au) IBM Australia’s research arm is set to venture into “quantum IoT”, saying the project fell “into [the] exciting area of making sense out of large amounts of data stemming from IoT devices and other data sources by using advanced analytics, including quantum computing.”
IBM revealed the project and the need for a research scientist to be based in Melbourne who can “map classical algorithms” (used to understand and analyse structured and unstructured datasets) “to quantum computers”.
The disclosure of efforts around quantum IoT is somewhat unusual for IBM, which has so far not revealed a great deal of use cases for quantum that it is actually pursuing internally, according to this source.
