(StonyBrookUniversity) Stony Brook University has joined the IBM Q Network™ as IBM expands its partnerships to accelerate joint research in quantum computing and develop curricula to help prepare students for careers that will be influenced by this next era of computing. The IBM Q Network™ is a community of Fortune 500 companies, startups, academic institutions and research labs working to advance quantum computing and explore practical applications.
“Stony Brook University is excited to partner with Brookhaven National Laboratory to participate in the IBM Q Network Hub,” said Robert Harrison, Director of the Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS) at Stony Brook. “Early access to IBM’s state-of-art quantum computers and science team represents a big a competitive advantage as we continue to grow related research at SBU and jointly with BNL, and as we prepare a new workforce skilled in quantum technologies.
“Developing practical quantum applications that drive business and scientific breakthroughs requires a diverse ecosystem,” said Dr. Anthony Annunziata, IBM Q Network Global Lead, IBM Research. “Partnering with these world-leading academic and research institutions is key as we work to educate, empower, and get the next generation of students ‘quantum ready’ to advance the field.”
