#103 Jay Gambetta, IBM Quantum Information Science
Jay Gambetta of IBM talks about their new Quantum Information Science Kit which makes it easy to running chemistry, artificial intelligence and optimization applications on quantum computers.
Who he is, what he does, quick overview of IBM Quantum Experience. Qiskit, Terra and Aqua, compilers, providers, simulators, experiment with chemistry, AI and optimization. Integration with existing software libraries. Reasons why quantum is better for some types of problems. Why use QISKIT instead of running on quantum hardware. IBM is Q Network. Start of the commercial quantum computing, who is involved, hard to define commercial. Can small companies get involved. IBM’s research in the quantum world. Coherence and reducing error rates to allow algorithms to run longer. Where we might be in a few years, error. How to get started with quantum.
