IBM Partnering With University the of Witwatersrand To Push Quantum Computing In Africa
International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) is stepping forward to partner with the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg in order to train hundreds of engineers and scientists in Africa on Quantum coding, experimental research to succeed computer-processor technology. Earlier this year, IBM introduced their Quantum coding in Las Vegas at the CES trade show, known as IBM Q System One. IBM’s inclusion and interest in Africa (a virtually unexplored market) may not come as a surprise as the technology giant is gearing up to race with Google, and Microsoft Corp to build machines that work beyond the reach of most powerful supercomputers.
IBM’s vice president for Africa and emerging-markets research, Solomon Assefa stated “IBM is investing to build capacity in quantum computing on the continent, and enter additional research opportunities in quantum fields,” IBM wants to “figure out potential commercial applications and activate skills and research in the private sector in Africa,” as reported.
Dow 30 component International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) provides information technology (IT) products and services worldwide. IBM announced recently two significant quantum processor upgrades for its IBM Q early-access commercial systems. These upgrades represent rapid advances in quantum hardware as IBM continues to drive progress across the entire quantum computing technology stack, with focus on systems, software, applications, and enablement.
