Quantum Information Science and Engineering
Quantum information science and engineering (QISE) is having a transformative impact on various fields by utilizing the principles of quantum mechanics to develop advanced technologies with unparalleled capabilities. QISE has the potential to revolutionize computing power, communication systems, sensing and imaging technologies, cryptography, and simulation capabilities, opening up new avenues for solving complex problems and driving innovation across industries, leading to profound societal and scientific advancements.
There have been exciting advances in numerous fields, such as quantum hardware, quantum software, simulation, communication, sensing, and imaging, with the aim of developing quantum systems that surpass their classical counterparts in performance and capabilities.
IBM Quantum Hub at NC State
The mission of the IBM Quantum Hub at NC State is to partner with our members to develop their quantum teams and explore promising use cases, to promote the growth of quantum computing across NC State, and to advance real-world applications of quantum computing globally.
The IBM Quantum Hub at NC State is structured as a hub and spoke model of engagement, and members can represent industry, academia or government. Each entity, including NC State, has their own dedicated access slot with equal priority cloud-based remote access with the goal of exploring practical applications important to business and science.
Presently each member has access to a variety of IBM’s quantum processors ranging from 1 to 65 qubits. Access through the IBM Quantum Hub also allows pulse-level control of qubit operations through the OpenPulse API. Pulse-level control is critical to enhancing the performance of the present generation of noisy, intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) computers, and this capability is only available through an IBM Quantum Hub.
