In this video from CloudFest in Germany, Jerry Chow from IBM presents: Enabling Quantum Computing Over the Cloud.

“Quantum computing has recently become a topic that has captured the minds and imagination of a much wider audience. Dr. Jerry Chow joined CloudFest to speak to the near future of quantum computing and insights into the IBM Q Experience, which since May 2016 has placed a rudimentary quantum computer on the Cloud for anyone and everyone to access.”

IBM Q is an industry-first initiative to build commercially available universal quantum computing systems for business and science. Today, IBM has a sophisticated prototype commercial quantum processor that will form the core of the first IBM Q early-access commercial systems for clients. In collaboration with key industry partners, IBM intends to significantly increase the computational capability of future quantum systems and demonstrate computational capabilities beyond today’s classical computing systems.

Jerry Chow is the Manager of the Experimental Quantum Computing group at IBM and a Distinguished Research Staff Member. His technical expertise is in the area of design, measurement, and integration of superconducting qubits. Chow graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in physics and M.S. in applied mathematics from Harvard University (2005) and subsequently a Ph.D. in physics from Yale University (2010). He was awarded an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship for his study at Yale, where he worked on implementing the first quantum processor with superconducting qubits in Professor Rob Schoelkopf’s group. He joined IBM Research as a Research Staff Member in 2010. In 2012 he was recognized in the Forbes 30 under 30 Technology list. Chow is the Primary Investigator for the IBM team on the IARPA Logical Qubits program since 2015. In 2016 he co-lead the IBM Quantum Experience project, placing a real quantum processor accessible to anyone over the Cloud.
