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

Say hello to Project Tango!

“What if you never found yourself lost in a new building again? What if directions to a new location didn’t stop at the street address? Imagine playing hide-and-seek in your house with your favorite game character. Imagine competing against a friend for control over physical space with your own miniature army”. These questions are willing to answer the Project Tango. A Google Advanced Technology and Projects group research topic

Studio 99: Art and Science

Artist in Residence James George finds similarities between the creative process and the pursuit of research. “Before this residency,” George says, “I had not been aware of the extent and makeup of the peer-review process in research, but there’s another analogy to art: Both are based on interacting with a community that shares a similar goal or similar ideas, and each person makes a unique contribution”. For sure is an interesting concept that looks like a non use solution for anything out there. Just something for a “wow” factor when you watch it for the first time. But on the future it will improve (and shape) the ampiend technology around us. For more info about it have a look here

IBM Client Center Research

“The IBM Client Center Research – Zurich is the unique place in Europe to pick the brain of IBM researchers, industry and trend experts and explore new technologies and IT trends. It is located at IBM Research – Zurich, home to world-class scientists and of two Nobel prizes. The Client Center provides companies, academia and government with the opportunity to find out how IBM’s R&D assets, trend research, advanced technologies and solutions can increase their success”
