IBM Institutions Join Forces to Advance Quantum Computing Skills in India

IBM introduced quantum computers through the cloud about 5 years ago. The partnering institutions will get preferential access to IBM’s quantum systems, learning resources, and quantum tools through the cloud.

The principle of survival of the fittest is embodied in today’s financial services environment. Institutions compete for minuscule competitive advantages by employing the most cutting-edge technologies available. Simultaneously, other researchers are looking at next-generation “quantum computing” to drastically cut the time necessary for extremely complex calculations while also improving accuracy.

Quantum computing is founded on quantum circuits. They are instruments for applying the quantum paradigm to real-world situations. And they will only ever be useful on genuine quantum gear.

Quantum science and technology’s shift from an area of active interest in research laboratories to one that may be implemented in everyday life is also an excellent time for many startup enterprises to begin and grow. DST’s QuEST (Quantum Enabled Science and Technology) directed research initiative is thus a critical first step towards making an incrementally higher effect in this field than the nation could do at the micro and nano sizes.

Will India be able to lead the way?

According to Professor Shaji of IISER Thiruvananthapuram, there is a bit of an issue in managing the expectations of students regarding quantum computing.

In addition to the current research relationship between ISI and IBM, the two organizations will engage in the production of course materials so that students can gain a better understanding of the topic.

Professor Shaji believes that IBM’s engagement will have a large cascading effect over the next five to ten years since students will be exposed to cutting-edge technologies at an early stage.

Qulabs was one of India’s earliest quantum computing companies. The firm, which was founded in 2017, promises to offer services in quantum machine learning, quantum communication, quantum computations, quantum algorithms, and simulations.

The Indian government announced the National Mission on Quantum Technologies and Applications (NMQTA), emphasizing the importance of advancing the quantum domain in the country. Quantum computing is being used in a variety of fields, including medical, agriculture, and finance.

IIT Madras Professor Prabhakar stated that the institute gets priority access to a number of IBM quantum devices. “Our students have the opportunity to participate in a quantum computing lab in which they can perform problems on these computers. Many of the machines are also open to the general public, however, they do not have priority

Last yr, the government launched the National Quantum Technology Agency (NMQTA) under the Ministry of Science and Technology, with a total budget investment of Rs. 8000 crore for the development of quantum knowledge.
