Dr Patrick Dreher (NC State University)
This is the first of two talks on the IBM-Q quantum computing systems. The presentation will briefly summarize the concept of an IBM-Q Hub and the preparations at NC State for implementation of the only university-based IBM-Q Hub in the Americas. There will be a brief discussion of the role that the Hub will play in forming research partnerships with industry and the preparations for building a university based educational role for quantum computing. The talk will also introduce the Hub’s capabilities and how they can potentially be focused toward high energy physics problems.
