IIT Madras and IBM team up on quantum computing education and research

Indian Institute of Technology Madras Monday announced a new partnership with IBM in education and quantum computing technology.

The collaboration will provide IIT Madras intelligence, researchers, and students with access to IBM’s quantum programs and tools in addition to IBM Cloud to accelerate research through quantum computing.

Courses will also be developed to help prepare students for jobs that will be influenced by the next era of computer science and business.

Quantum computing lab courses will integrate hands-on sessions into IBM’s quantum system and add existing courses to quantum and computer knowledge. IBM will provide the learning resources, tools, and program access required by the unit and students.

Gargi Dasgupta, Director at IBM Research India, said IBM is committed to supporting teachers like IIT Madras who form the next generation of quantum founders through a variety of programs and programs.

Professor Anil Prabhakar of the Department of Electrical Engineering at IIT Madras said quantum computing provides an opportunity to solve problems that cannot be solved by computer.

“We have participated in the leadership in the development of indigenous quantum key distribution (QKD), we have shown the distribution of the QKD phase in the distance of up to 150 km,” he said.

“Such QKD agreements create blocks to build quantum networks that will protect our communications, and enable new paradigms such as photonic quantum computing without distribution and blind quantum computing.”
