(AugustaFreePress) Virginia Tech has joined the expanding IBM Q Network as a member of the IBM Q Hub at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to accelerate joint research in quantum computing, as well as develop curricula to help prepare students for new careers in science, engineering, and business influenced by the next era of computing.
The IBM Q Network is the world’s first community of Fortune 500 companies, startups, academic institutions, and research labs working to advance quantum computing. Virginia Tech researchers and students will have direct access to IBM Q’s most-advanced quantum computing systems for research projects that advance quantum science, exploring early uses of quantum computing, and for teaching.
Faculty and students from Virginia Tech’s College of Science and College of Engineering will collaborate with IBM scientists on research to advance the foundational science, technology, and software required to enable more capable quantum systems.
