Quantum Computing


IBM Q is an industry-first initiative to build commercially available universal quantum computing systems. As part of this effort, The IBM Quantum Experience enables anyone to connect to IBM’s quantum processor via the IBM Cloud, to run algorithms, experiments and to collaboratively explore what might be possible with quantum computing. Jerry Chow, manager of experimental quantum computing for IBM Research, describes the aim of this growing community working together to advance the frontiers of quantum


IBM Q systems will be designed to tackle problems in business and science that are too complex and exponential in nature for classical computing systems to handle. One of the first and most promising applications will be in the area of chemistry. Even for simple molecules like caffeine, the number of quantum states in the molecule can be astoundingly large — so large that all the conventional computing memory and processing power that could ever be built could not model it — and could lead to the discovery of new materials and medicines

Introducing Handle or… Creepy


Handle is a research robot that stands 6.5 ft tall, travels at 9 mph and jumps 4​ ​feet vertically. ​It uses electric power to operate both electric and hydraulic actuators, with a range of about 15 miles on one battery charge. ​​​Handle uses many of the same dynamics, balance and mobile manipulation principles​ found in the quadruped and biped robots we build, but with only about 10 actuated joints, it is significantly less complex. Wheels are efficient on flat surfaces while legs can go almost anywhere: by combining wheels and legs Handle can have the best of both worlds.
Fore sure it looks amazing! But its a little bit creepy!
