Quantum computing: IIT Madras announces its collaboration with IBM

The quantum computing lab courses jointly taught by IIT Madras faculty and IBM researchers will include hands-on lab sessions on the IBM quantum systems and will augment existing courses on quantum information and computing

On Monday, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras announced its collaboration with IBM on quantum computing education and research. An access to IBMs quantum systems and tools over IBM Cloud will be provided to IIT Madras by this collaboration, IIT Madras said.

To help prepare students for careers that will be influenced by this next era of computing, across science and business, it would accelerate joint research in quantum computing, and develop curricula, the premier institute said in a press release.

“The quantum computing lab courses jointly taught by IIT Madras faculty and IBM researchers will include hands-on lab sessions on the IBM quantum systems and will augment existing courses on quantum information and computing. IBM will provide the learning resources, tools, and systems access needed by the faculty and students”.

Backed by government initiatives including the Quantum Enabled Science and Technologies (QuEST) programme and the National Mission on Quantum Technologies and Applications (NMQTA), India has witnessed a huge spurt in activity in the quantum science and technology domain over the last few years, it said.

“Quantum computing offers us the opportunity to solve computationally intractable problems”, said Prof. Anil Prabhakar, Department of Electrical Engineering at IIT Madras.

“Quantum computing is fast emerging as one of the disruptive technologies of our times. IBM is committed to supporting educators like IIT Madras who are shaping the next generation of quantum innovators through various initiatives and programs”, said Gargi Dasgupta, Director of IBM Research India.
