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

Color sensitive interactive bilboard

In early 2009, IBM launched its smarter planet agenda – a broad campaign acknowledging the importance of intelligent systems in the world today. In the retail industry, for example, consumer data around something as simple as color can have massive implications around shipping, inventory and, ultimately, overall sales. This interactive billboard is a simple and engaging virtual demonstration of how a smarter retail system can work. And yes… it is working! I have seen one of those couple of weeks ago in London. It tracks lot of people attention.
