IBM recently released IBM Quantum Experience, a freely accessible programming interface to its 5-bit universal quantum computer, accompanied by a 16-bit beta version, both set on the IBM Cloud. I will describe the science and technology behind this milestone event. I will then present IBM's further vision for quantum computing in the marketplace, in terms of hardware, software stack, potential applications, and algorithms. Short Bio: ========== Yehuda Naveh got his B.Sc. in physics and math, M.Sc. in experimental condensed matter physics, and Ph.D. in theoretical condensed matter physics, all from Hebrew University of Jerusalem. After four years at Stony Brook University, working on electronic properties of semiconductors and superconductors, he joined IBM Research - Haifa, where he has been working on a spectrum of applications, including leading the quantum computation related activity at IBM Haifa. ======================================= Refreshments will be served from 14:15 Lecture starts at 14:30
