(CIO.EconomicTimes.EconomicTimes) IBM has outlined its commitment to grow a quantum ready workforce and build an ecosystem to nurture the quantum community in India.
Gargi Dasgupta, Director, IBM Research India said, “India was selected as a growth market for IBM Quantum due to the growing interest and investment in quantum computing. However, for India to have a leading role in the new quantum industry, concerted efforts are required to bring together industry, academia and government across skills, training, research, technology access, industry, and economy. IBM aims to advance the quantum ecosystem in India by hosting skill-building programs like Qiskit Challenge India which are open to all, and Qiskit India Professor Meetup by providing access to educational resources, software as well as real quantum hardware, accessible over the IBM Cloud.”
With the announcement of the National Mission on Quantum Technologies and Applications, interest in quantum computing has been surging in India and it is an opportune time to make it ubiquitous and accessible to a diverse audience to unlock its true potential.
